* The Japanese video game industry is going through this as a whole. In the 80's and 90's they were the dominant force in the video game industry. But by the PS3[=/=]X360 era, they began to fall off the map. Largely due to the overwhelming burden of developing for HD consoles, the surge of quality Western titles, and Japanese devs trying too hard to cater to Americans. However in 2017, Japanese developers began to skyrocket back to stardom with a string of critically and commercially successfully games that put the nation back into the major leagues.

2001's ''Film/MoulinRouge'' was the first live-action musical in years to attract positive attention, but a comeback truly kicked off the following year with the Oscar-winning film of ''Film/{{Chicago}}'', and has continued into the present with the likes of ''Theatre/{{Dreamgirls}}'', ''Film/{{Hairspray}}'', ''Theatre/MammaMia'' and ''Theatre/LesMiserables''. Disney even managed to make a highly successful franchise out of ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'', to the point where the third film was upgraded to a theatrical release, its' success sparking franchises like ''Film/CampRock'' and ''Film/TeenBeachMovie''. ''Series/{{Glee}}'' helped to carry the musical revival torch into TheNewTens, alongside films like ''Film/PitchPerfect'', ''Joyful Noise'' and shows like ''Series/{{Smash}}'' (though neither of the latter two were particularly successful). However, 2016's ''Film/LaLaLand'' stumped almost everyone, becoming a critical and financial hit much like ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'' and ''Film/TheGreatestShowman''.

** Nintendo seems to have hit another low with their UsefulNotes/{{Wii U}}, which has fallen to last place behind the UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 4}} and UsefulNotes/XboxOne despite a one year head start. This is largely due to their attempt to [[WinBackTheCrowd win back]] core gamers while [[MisaimedMarketing still trying to appeal to casuals simultaneously]], not to mention with the apparent lack of innovation (the primary controller resembles a tablet), and the shift in consumer electronics development (for easy porting) results in the [=PS4=] and Xbox One using standardized PC hardware. Whilst it does have an audience with hardcore gamers and Nintendo fans, the casual fans have moved on to other products like smartphones and casual games in PC or the more mainstream consoles. By the time [[KillerApp successful games]] like ''Videogame/HyruleWarriors'', the fourth game in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' series, and the SleeperHit ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' came out, it was already too late for the console.
** As of May 2017 however Nintendo has been on an upswing with the release of their new console the Nintendo Switch. The Switch launched to a massive Comercial success, selling out across the world within hours of its release, and even outselling Nintendo's previous best launch the Wii. This combined with theit recent success with ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' (which was likely a product of ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'' becoming a world wide phenomenon for a short time) has lead many to predict an upcoming reprise of Nintendo's past successes

As the debacle of ''Heaven's Gate'' fell further into the past, however, the film eventually regained its reputation as one of the great Vietnam War movies.

Helping its reputation further is the fact that ''Heaven's Gate'' has itself [[VindicatedByHistory come in for reappraisal]] over the years, especially after the [[ReCut director's cut]] premiered in 2012 at the Venice Film Festival, with critics who only knew the film from its 1981 theatrical cut surprised at how good it was and arguing that its re-edit after poor press screenings had obscured a genuinely great film.

* Phineas and Ferb was popular through 2008 to 2011, and was the biggest cartoon airing in that time period, second to only FamilyGuy (Which co creator DanPovenmire had worked on beforehand), but it's reputation soured after "Across the Second Dimension", with former fans abandoning the show and refusing to admit they ever liked it, claiming that it was relied too much on it's StrictlyFormulap. The repurcussions got really bad when it was announced the characters would be crossing over with the "Marvel" universe and Star Wars, to which the former had gotten so many negative comments that Disney Channel gave the latter scant promotion and Dan and Swampy had to write a disclaimr noting that the crossover was not canon to avoid backlash. Those subsequent crossovers proved to be failures, and the show's ratings had gotten so abysmal that Disney had pulled the plug on the theatrical movie that was announced in 2011 and the "Fireside Girls" spinoff that was greenlit in 2010. The fact that other cartoons came around this time that focused on character development, story arc and had darker themes than "Phineas and Ferb" made the show suffer from "Seinfeld is Unfunny" and didn't help matters at all. The series ended in 2015, with little fanfare. But, while not to the extent of other shows, "Phineas and Ferb" has regained some of it's popularity 2 years after it originally ended, with people saying that it was one of the biggest cornerstones of Disney Channel in the late 2000s and early 2010s and reminiscing on it fondly . A crossover with it's SpiritualSuccessor was announced in 2017, and was met with surprisingly positive reactions, compared to the reaction the other two crossovers received.

* The long-form MiniSeries in the U.S. In TheSeventies and TheEighties, this was seen as the premier format for high-quality television, with shows like ''Series/{{Roots}}'', ''Series/JesusOfNazareth'', ''{{Series/V 1983}}'', and ''Rich Man, Poor Man'' allowing the networks and their writers to stretch their wings and bring Hollywood-level production values and big-name stars to the small screen. The then-Big Three networks would devote large chunks of their annual budget and UsefulNotes/{{sweeps}} time to air miniseries that could take up a whole week (or even more) of programming to keep audiences glued to the TV. During TheNineties, however, the quality of miniseries fell into the gutter as networks exploited the format as a UsefulNotes/{{sweeps}}-week RatingsStunt first and a method of storytelling second. The length of most miniseries also decreased, shrinking to just two parts and 4-5 hours, as networks grew more cost-conscious. By the TurnOfTheMillennium, a glut of crappy miniseries had virtually discredited the format.\\

* The [[EasternRPG JRPG]] genre in the West. During the '90s and early 2000s, it was viewed as the ultimate video game narrative genre, with awesome storylines that many said rivaled some Hollywood blockbusters. However, sometime during the mid 2000s, with the explosion of Western development teams and the decay of the Japanese industry, the tides changed dramatically, not helped by the fact that technological advances eventually allowed other genres to tell equally detailed stories. In addition, the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series suffered a major dip in quality after ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''. During the late 2000s and early 2010s, thanks in no small part to the incredibly polarizing critical and commercial reception of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', the once overwhelmingly popular JRPG had become a dreaded video game genre, seen as a poison that had been holding video games back as a narrative medium for too long. The fact that most of these games relied on {{anime}} style art alienated non-anime fans. Fortunately in 2012, thanks to the critical and commercial success of ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'',[[note]]which was released for the Wii, of all consoles[[/note]] the JRPG made a comeback. The genre is now in good critical and commercial standing once again, with games like ''VideoGame/TheLastStory'', ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'' and the sleeper hit ''VideoGame/BravelyDefault'' being cited as some of the finest games the genre has ever produced. Also, certain fondly remembered games have enjoyed well received remakes such as ''[[VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar Lunar: Silver Star Story]]'' and the UpdatedRerelease of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.
