yes. Film makers sometimes wanna bring back nostalgia but with a modern touch.
M night shamalan done this slightly with the opening credits of signs. The music was very 50's like too.
There is a danger with becoming too modern in film and one has to choose the right cinematrography for the type of movie they are making.
For example, i felt die hard 4.0 looked far too bluey and shiny and would have preferred it to look simple 80's style. It just didnt look right for a hardcore action film like that.
