The media's adoption of names and terms from popular films.

The use of these terms shows how "hip" headline writers and on-air personalities are.
After the film "Amadeus" came out, everyone had to give a film nod by calling Mozart-Wolfgang 'Amadeus' Mozart from now on.

The word "tornado" all but disappeared in a cloud of film nods after the movie "Twister" was released.
