I think this is from being around the Hollywood attitude to much. Americans are addicted to the glitz and glamour of the camera and celebrity lifestyle. It does not make sense to me, I hate TV and celebrities and all that stuff, but it’s a huge business worldwide and can teach you a lot about consumer psychology, so I pay attention to it!
American movies are great a lot of times because we can afford the massive budgets that they need to make grand movie’s The market for films n other countries is not big enough to make something like "The lord of the rings" or a "Harry Potter".
American studios can make that movie here, sell it to its American audience just to make its money back and rely on the international markets for its profits. The actors and producers only have to be paid once, so any extra sales outside their guaranteed American market is lie pure profit.
Another reason why America has a great movie market is the diversity we have here. Whatever kind of cultures movie can be made here in America, with expertise. We may already have the "set" set up somewhere. For instance, if you wanted to make a movie about Jamaicans culture than you can shoot the movie in Miami, a city heavily influenced by Jamaica and where a lot of Jamaicans call home. You could find a ton of Jamaicans to star in the movie and a ton of experts on Jamaican culture at the local universities.
The worst thing of all these movies and entertainment is that many American live in two worlds; the make believes one on TV ran by marketers and the one they live in. These shoes and movies had tricked people into thinking their life is the Television. They watch so much influencing TV that they act the way it tells them to, thinks the way it tells them to and they want to look like the people on it. I do not have A TV in my room, and I hate movies for this reason. I am also a trained marketer (I have a degree in marketing management and marketing entrepreneurship) so I know what I am talking about when I write this stuff, we are taught how to bend peoples mind to buy something.
