If you're familiar with Contextualize/Whamise This Line, then you may know how this will work. However, instead of a line, you must write a plot/synopsis based off a title from a work in a "Poster above you" format. For example...

Troper A: Soul Surfer

Troper B: Soul Surfer is a cyberpunk action film about a man who has the unique ability to go into the bodies of other people, and must do this to clear his name for a crime he hasn't committed.

Something like that. I'm just hoping I'm being concise enough. Alright, let's begin.

The Harbinger of Strange
A midget, burdened with the ability to instantly know all significant events that occur in the world AS they occur (think Bruce Almighty, stream of prayers in God's thoughts), chooses a life of solitude in order to cope with this handicap, but he's called into action when he notices an insidious shadow government brewing a world takeover plot. He arms up, Rambo-style, to take on the leaders of the organization and saves the day.

You need an adult.

Can these 9 survive?

In the far far distant future, when all of the stars in the universe have died and their white dwarf remains have cooled to black dwarfs, cold chunks of degenerate matter, one ship is left sailing through the universe, it's crew waiting for the dreaded day it runs out of energy and their food synthesisers will no longer work, leading to their inevitable deaths. Can they find the legendary wormhole leading to another, younger, habitable universe before this time comes?
