I don't know the qualifications for a B movie rating.

But I doubt Jaws & Close Encounters merit that rating.

I remember quite a few "bad" movies from the 60s and 70s, but not sure how many of them qualify as "B" movies. I feel like B movies have a unique combination of not taking themselves seriously and also usually over the top practical effects (not necessarily good ones) and most of the movies I can think of are from the 80s. I guess off the top of my head my list is:

Dead Heat
Monster Club
Last Man on Earth
Killer Klowns from Outer Space
Elvira Mistress of the Dark
Little Shop of Horrors (the original)
Ghoulies
CHUD
Barbarella
Critters
Flash Gordon
Fire and Ice
Curse of the Warewolf
Dead Alive
Futureworld
My Science Project

And I guess you can throw in literally everything from Full Moon Video (Dollman, Pupper Master, Trancers, etc.). I wasn't as big a fan of Troma stuff like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Sgt. Kabuki-man, and the Toxic Avenger.

I always regarded "B" movies as a lower budget, lesser known names ( for the time it was made ) and low grade acting, special effects or plot line.

Stellar examples would be... Attack of the Killer Tomatoes... The Toxic Avenger...

Not sure if it's considered a B movie, but still a favorite of mine, Herold & Maude.

I think I like every movie on your list (except possibly some of the westerns) but very few of them I would classify as "B" movies. Many you posted were blockbuster bug budget films, literally the opposite of "B".

Awesome John Carpenter movie. Still holds up today and is a classic B-movie if anyone cares to see it.
Fun fact: For several years, this movie has the longest running, continuous live-action fight scene ever filmed. The fight between Roddy Piper and Keith David in the alley.
