Thousands of years ago, all the high fantasy shit was totally real, complete with magic and elves and whatever. But the elves got tired of our shit and decided to teach us a lesson by constructing a global network of magic-inhibiting monuments which effectively eradicated all forms of magic from the world. The idea was that we'd destroy ourselves and the whole planet with that kind of power, and they wanted us to develop into a wiser, more thoughtful race.

It's a comedy, of course.

A space alien is stranded on Earth after accidentally being left behind by a group that landed on the planet. Prolonged exposure to our atmosphere is toxic to it but it manages to survive by draining the life force out of unwary youths native to the area where it was left. The government eventually mounts an operation to try to corral the creature after discovering that it can be harmed by certain citizen's band radio frequencies, but it's own people come to pick it back up before it can be captured. Sort of a b-movie horror version of E.T.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

The centuries-long ceasefire between the narratomancers (who mostly work in TV writer's rooms) and the sigilmancers (who mostly work in graphic design) comes to an end as tensions boil over. The battlefield: all forms of visual media. Many non-mages are collateral damage.

A couple conceives a son via IVF, but he dies in a tragic accident at age 8. The stress and grief causes a rift in the marriage; they divorce and the man's ex-wife moves to Hong Kong. Six years later, just as the man is starting to get his life back together and thinking about starting to date again, it's discovered that the doctor running the IVF firm was using it as a front for shady human cloning experiments, and that seven clones of this guy's dead son have been living in orphanages across the country. The eccentric judge in charge of the family court side of this decides that they all need to move in with their father. This is a sitcom. He must try to balance his nascent love-life with mediating conflicts between his seven physically-identical teenage sons (who have extremely different backgrounds and personalities), dealing with the micromanaging eccentric judge (who has decided that this family is his new project & frequently makes unannounced visits), and trying to figure out how/whether to explain this to his jet-setting ex-wife who seems to have finally gotten back on her feet.

two related idead:

*folkloric Slavic boogeyman Koschei the deathless (who is basically the archetype for things like liches and Lord Voldemort; he's a creature who cannot be permanently killed bexause he has hidden his soul away in a secret box somewhere) has been the true identity of every Russian leader for the past 400 years. Every time a new leader has come to power they have been a revived version of the same leader who just died (or was ousted). All the Tsars, and Stalin, and Putin, and so forth have all been the same person.

[...]

I like this, would splice well with a commentary on the psychological biases that enable mental slips like the "Mendela" effect.

Story has a premise similar to the main conflict of the  holiday special Santa Claus Is Coming to Town but the themes of christmas, santa claus, toys, and children are removed. Instead the hero is bringing violent videogames and hardcore pronograpy to the people of the Commonwealth of Nations in contravention of laws which heavily regulate such things.

I'd like to reiterate my desire to someday make a superhero movie that simultaneously:
1.) Violates every single item of the comics code
2.) Violates every single item of the Hays code
3.) Depicts Muhammed

two unrelated ideas:

1.) A dissatisfied alcoholic 1950's sales executive awakens after a bender to discover that he has somehow conquered India. This idea arose out of the thought of identifying BOB Dobbs with Liber Pater/Dionysus

2.) A combination of Pokemon and Journey to the West in which a monk goes about rounding up supernatural beings that have been subjugated by the Buddha in order to make them battle against similar beings captured by rival monestaries

A small-time con artist in silicon valley recognizes that the best way to make money in the tech industry is to get a huge amount of VC cash and then create a series of embarrassing public scandals before any of that money is actually spent (i.e., before hiring employees or getting users or doing anything other than sweet-talking the tech press). Unfortunately, the industry doubles-down in support of this con artist after every scandal, and he has no choice but to escalate and begin doing things he finds personally repulsive because he has no idea how to do any of the things he promised (many of which are probably not physically possible).
