The 1970s brought us 'American Graffiti,' a film about life in the early '60s. The '80s had 'Platoon,' about the Vietnam War. And in 1993, there was Richard Linklater's 'Dazed and Confused,' about Ben Affleck getting drunk and hazing freshmen high school teens in the late '70s. There's a pattern here: Hollywood may have a habit of rushing out craptacular nonsense before giving themselves time to fully digest their ideas, but that's (usually) not the case when it comes to handling nostalgia. In general, studios tend to ignore the past decade and obsesses over the one (or two) before that.
