        I like Oppenheimer but that's cheating. The Trinity tests and Oppenheimer's confused regrets in the years afterwards were already iconic. Nolan bought it to life better than any other director has before (especially the whole Trinity sequence - frick me) but it was already one of the most iconic moments of the 20th century to begin with

        LOTR already had an impact in pop culture since it was a successful book. Granted, its biggest influence was in more niche interests like gaming and rock/metal music.
        >nor started a fantasy renassance or something.
        It absolutely did thoughever. Every big fantasy novel was eyed for a big budget adaptation in the 00s. Ironically, I think the Hobbit trilogy ended that period.

    They obviously do, it's just that the modern references go out of fashion much faster.
    References to older media are persistent.
    I think it's simply because there's so much more media today, not always of the same type though.

    If there are fewer entertainment inputs into people's minds, but people aren't any dumber, they repeat the same information through talk and rumination. So the repeated information becomes reinforced, people remember it.
    Older people who have seen the older media act as a seedbank to repeatedly 'infect' younger people with their old memes. The younger people are comfortable forgetting their own memes and taking on new ones.
