So why can't we get back to this?

Because two of them are dead false, IMHO - Image quality and fun to use.

The image quality of film was pretty horrible unless you were shooting at ISO 100 or below (ISO 400 film was the red-line for me, while ISO 12,800 is the red-line in digital for me). And modern digitals have three distinct features that just crush old film systems for fun to use for me - ability to change ISO on the fly, tracking autofocus, and image stabilization.

For me, the reason I would want this is because of high ISO...the ability to shift ISO as a part of exposure selection as needed, and IQ.  People love to glamorize the ability of film....but can't compare in low light, hand held.  Sure you could get an image but it would have massive motion blur and be grainy as hell.  Digital has the distinct advantage of high speed low light ability.  You can keep your auto anything.  I just want to shoot like a film camera with the quality of digital.
