The techniques used to make these films more attractive can still be seen in current day films, but at higher quality content. The cultural norms and economic conditions had a profound impact of the type of content being produced in Hollywood during this era. Additionally, the political implications, such as anti-Communist sentiments and the Paramount decision, had an effect on future films produced in the United States.

In addition, Jamie entered the music industry when it was on the down side of his era. That made it really hard for Jamie because in today’s generation, soul and R&B isn’t as popular as it once was. Also, I believe that the money generated from making these movies influenced him to keep the ball rolling. Jamie Foxx has played in plenty other movies after The Soloist: Django Unchained, White House Down, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Horrible Bosses, Annie, and his latest movie Sleepless, which was released in 2017. All of these movies have good ratings.

However, many fantasy readers believe that Harry Potter will soon become a well known classic just like Lord of the Rings. Furthermore, Harry has a lot more merchandise and is a lot more popular with the younger generations that grew up with Harry. That is not even considering the fact that Harry Potter has his very own theme park inside Universal Studios in Orlando. Therefore, although Frodo is considered a classic and was probably the more famous one a couple of years ago, Harry is in fact more popular than Frodo. That fact is easily seen if you consider that although Harry Potter is not yet a classic, it likely will be soon, Harry has his own theme park, and compared to Frodo, Harry has a plethora of merchandise and is far more popular with the younger generations of the
