->''Overdrive'' is a street crime movie set in today's San Francisco, okay? It's one of those throwback movies to the 70's exploitation films. Bombs, car chases, afros, hot chicks, windsurfing, space shuttle, okay? You kinda get where I'm going with this? We're gonna go big with this one. We might as well even just call the movie ''Super Big and Awesome!'', but it's not gonna fit on a poster, okay? [...] Now, this thing is gonna be real lo-fi, okay, we're not gonna do any space-age crap, okay, we're not doing that. No lasers on the car, no kangaroos, and no Spanish, okay? We're gonna do long takes that are really unsafe with insane stunts, as many as you can squeeze together into one run.

* ''Film/{{Brick}}'', while set in a modern-day (2006) HighSchool, is a throwback to 1930s and '40s FilmNoir, mapping teen movie archetypes to those of old crime movies and having them speak in period slang.

Note this should ''not'' cover instances of a specific ''franchise'' [[ContinuityReboot being brought back]], e.g., the later incarnations of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' or ''Series/DoctorWho'', or the ''Film/FlashGordon'' movie. This trope is much closer to a SpiritualSuccessor than an actual reboot.

* ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' and ''VideoGame/{{Painkiller}}'' -- Early-to-mid 1990s [[FirstPersonShooter first-person shooters]].
* ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' also brings back elements of classic FPS games (such as a HyperspaceArsenal, health packs, and large maps), though it does still have some hints of modern FPS (health regenerates to at least 25%, and it has a cinematic flair about it).
** ''VideoGame/Doom2016'' takes this even further, bringing back nearly everything from the classic ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' games, plus elements from most of Creator/IdSoftware's other classic shooters like ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}''.
