I’ll get the ball rolling:

Dead Man’s Shoe (2004)

Sounds like a tearjerking tale of a recently-bereaved man returning the shoe of a road accident victim he found in a bush to the victim’s late wife, through which they spark a deep friendship that goes beyond mere love. PG-13 5/10 Oscar-bait shite.

        First movie in the ‘Medusa’ trilogy. About an ancient order of sea otters called ‘Medusa’, that have saved the world from behind the scenes countless times over the centuries.

Based on a famous painting with the same name.

    Jaw.

    A very impressive but ultimately harmless piece of shark jawbone washes up on the beach of beautiful Amity Island, where it is later taken to the city hall to be displayed under glass. The summer tourist season continues on with little to no issue.

    Gremlin (1984)

    A 160 minute slog of an arthouse film presented in black and white with almost no dialogue, chronicling not much happening over the period of several days to the owner of a chronically cantankerous compact car, which he can’t get to start and thus can’t go anywhere. Unrated; for some inexplicable reason, also subtitled entirely in French.

    The Incredible - Instead of his whole family being super, it’s just him. He’s hidden his identity his whole life and is killed by Syndrome trying to reclaim his glory days because there’s no one to come help him.

    Dead Poet Society - Just the sad story about the one guy who kills himself

    One Samurai - Weeb who thinks he’s a Samurai tries to defend the innocent. Gets killed on his first attempt.

    The Magnificent One (so many thing this could turn the movie into but I choose to believe it’ll end up about some religious figure)

    Ghostbuster - Just Bill Murray being a quack scientist the whole time, or maybe Egon having a fruitless search for ghosts

    One (previously Seven) - A documentary about some billionaire who thinks they’re special and the only one who can save the world.

    Star War - Stops after the first movie. Wait, this may make it better.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle - It’s just the scientist on his quest to make the first turtle

    The Musketeer - Given this movie exists and I doubt many people who watched it could even tell you what it was about, speaks for itself

    Transformer - Documentary about the making of the first electrical transformer.

    Tremor - becomes a movie about an earthquake that happens in Perfection. Destroys the few buildings in town and they are forced to rebuild or move.

    X-man - Story of the last person in the X-men group, basically a rehash of Logan.

    The Warrior - Yet another story about some special person in the distant past who’s a great fighter or saves his village from some bandits.
