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
It could be disguised as a documentary entitled /Super-Powers: Global Dominion/

Rail Sham Bo

A camera follows a someone taking a train for 77 hours.
There are no cell phones or laptops, nothing to read, and no clocks or watches.
Nothing extraordinary happens, there is a lot of emotionally charged eye contact between passengers, often while they play rock papers scissors, but only one sentence can be heard in poorly enunciated French every 5 minutes.
Natural law demands spaghetti to be eaten raw.

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

An anime about the vietnam war. Complete with stereotypical anime style combat revolving around physically impossible combat moves with longwinded names that are yelled out as the kove is being performed

Aliens much more advanced than earthlings, militarily, seek to colonize earth. Their point of entry is the world's ping-pong convention. The formal appearance of a massive 2000 man Round-Robin game is strikingly similar to an ancient alien channeling rite which was said to summon demonic armies. Out of fear of triggering the summon by entering combat, which would trigger the final part of the rite, the sacrifice, the aliens must wait until the Round-Robin game is over.

The neighboring convention, the convention for anarcho-economists, who have advanced far more than the aliens in the econo-arts, must save Earth by convincing the aliens that colonization is a huge waste of money before the Round-Robin match is over. Should they be able to do so, the aliens will cease their colonization of Earth.

*An anime about Gilles de Rais

*Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode: "Shamrock Shake"- while Master Shake is binge drinking on St.Patrick's day the leprechauns from episode 2 trick him into becoming a foot soldier for the local irish mob, who are engaged in a gang war with the Mooninites, who are dressed like the villain from Gangs of New York. Somehow they get it into their head to fire the rainbow machine at the moon, but this pulls the moon to the earth and he entire planet is destroyed

*comedy sketch: ad for a perfume called "Merde"

EDIT:
Another idea:

*A driver picks up a hitchhiker on a lonely stretch of highway. The hitchhiker and the driver both try to kill each other. Turns out they're both serial killers. They have a good laugh. (did I post this one before?)

EDIT:
Another idea:

*Space habitat in the future where instead of artificial gravity everything is hung with ropes joined to opposite walls that people can climb from one to another to navigate

EDIT:
Another idea:

*The United States is a battleground in a proxy war between two archfiends vying for rulership of Hell; Mammon (represented by the Republican Party) and Moloch (represented by the Democratic Party)

The sentient magic sword that decides the chosen hero is, in fact, lecherous, jealous, shallow, and possessive, and chooses heros based on who it thinks is hot. The hero is the only one with a telepathic connection to this sword, and the sword controls his or her destiny.


It also speaks in whatever gender,accent, whatever is least likely to be attractive to the hero, an unfortunate side curse.

*A man conjures tge devil to sell his soul, despite knowledge beforehand that thw devil will reject his offer because he is already damned, in hopes that the defil's rejection will be overly specific and point him towards tge precise actions he must take to redeem himself

*A Cloverfield-esque horror movie following a group of people who find themselves trapped amidst the chaos when Ragnarok suddenly begins

In the future a vain and shallow bro (or possibly a pickup artist) spends the entirety of an interplanetary journey standing and sitting in a position perpendicular to their direction of travel so that his penis length won't be contracted in the refrence frames of planets that they pass on their way

EDIT:
Another idea:

An attempt to replicate the Schrodinder's Cat thought experiment in a real lab with a real cat results in the creation of zombies

An anime style show about World War 2 with typical crazy anime style stuff like the British army's secret weapon is the Knights of the Round Table and Hitler is an ancient evil spirit and Bomber Harris literally has the power to control the wind

EDIT:
A remake of the film The Day After Tomorrow in which the global superstorm is the deliberate work of a supervillain resembling Monarch Butterfly from The Venture Brothers

Pervasive personalized entertainment generating AIs result in a world where there are no cultural touchstones. Eventually the system breaks down as genre disappears

I'm pretty sure this happened in one of the Fate AUs, except Hitler was a girl.

humanity spends 1,000 years colonizing space with gigantic cryo-sleeper ships and trade routes that take 100 years to cross, and people can upload their conscious minds to computers to overcome the vast time scales everything takes now, and everything in human culture revolves around waiting 50 years for the Amazon package to arrive. Then, some asshole finally invents dependable faster-than-light engines, and everything will fall apart if the technology isn't immediately suppressed.
