    I see a shot of a robot looking at their cell phone, and there's a text that says, "O HELL NA"
    Already sounds better than the actual movie.

    Little Dieter Needs to Fry

    An old man recounts his harrowing ordeal being shot down over Laos and fighting his way out only to be captured by Werner Herzog and trained to replace a short-order chimp cook at a circus diner whose face was burned by boiling fat.
    "How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home wine-making course and forgot how to drive?"

    Japs

    A recount by an old, boozy, racist fisherman about the USS Indianapolis and the delivering of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and the subsequent sinking and shark attacks. Upon a shark attacking his vessel, he goes insane and flashes back to his war days and kidnaps his companions in search of the enemy.

    Mama Cass is love with Rick and Victor and right before she must choose who she wants to be with, she chokes on a ham sandwich and dies. If directed by Wong Kar-Wai, add 10 instances of "California Dreamin".

    I think we need to resurrect this old thread in light of recent movies coming out. New synopsis for this one:

    Paul Mercedes travels to dessert planet Iraqis where giant worm turds are the most valuable resource in the universe. Can he fulfill his destiny and become the Croissant Haderach?

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Leading off Skitch...

    Jeff Goldblum plays a neurotic scientist who has invented a teleportation machine. In his first human test using himself as a guinea pig, his genes are spliced with those of a COVID-19 germ. His girlfriend, played by Geena Davis, must watch in horror as Goldblum infects those around him.

    David Cronenberg's...The Flu.
