We recently ran a little rant about the lack of original films and the dearth of franchises and blockbusters. One of our gripes included the number of old series being rebooted or still spawning sequels. We don’t want to give execs any ideas, but there are, in fact, a number of classics (or not-quite-classics, or just plain old movies that exist) from the the 1970s and 1980s that haven’t, mysteriously, been plucked for a new life. Above you will find some of those.
