As described throughout David Church's essay, list ten distinct characteristics of grind houses. Bullet points are perfectly acceptable!
How long have grind houses been around, and when did the term grind house gain popularity?
What kinds of films have played in grind houses over the course of cinema history?
What do you learn about Grindhouse--Rodriguez's Planet Terror and Tarantino's Death Proof--from Church's essay? Exhibition, the experience? Authenticity?
What is post-feminism as Jeremi Szaniawski explains it? Embed two visual examples of post-feminism in the media NOT mentioned in our readings, and explain why each may be considered post-feminist.
According to Szniawski, how does Carol Clover's trope of "the Final Girl" work within Death Proof? Does it?
Finally, what three genres and one "derivative genre" does Death Proof interweave, according to David Roche? Similarly, for whom is Death Proof presumably made? Your thoughts here?
