Using the name of the notorious C Di game, the movie is instead focused on Tingle. It is five hours long, and the plot consists entirely of him floating around Termina being creepy.

"Welcome to Atop the Fourth Wall, where bad comics FREEZE!" Linkara sums up bad comics, while imitating the characters with ICE SKATING! Quite boring, why pay for something the internet can give you free and less awkwardly? (There's the 90s kid and Dr. Insano and stuff, Linkara isn't alone.)

Scott Pilgrim: The Musical

I'm actually writing this. GOD, I'm a nerd.

As for the Chatty Cathy movie, I can see them going one of two ways with it. They could make it a Creepy Doll thing similar to "Talky Tina" from The Twilight Zone, or they could play it straight and make it like My Pet Monster. Either way, it would likely be terrible.

In the same vein as the Super Mario Bros. Movie, a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie!

It's the 2006 version, Squicky kiss included, with the same voice actors sans DAN GREEN and Mike Pollock, and the loading times are added to the plot, and are called "super speed cuts."

It's a story of the lives of brothers Simon and Matthew Weeble, in which everything that happens goes wrong, and they come close to a nervous breakdown, only to pull together at the last minute and improve their lives.

The touching story of a struggling couple starting their own real estate company. 15 minutes into the movie however, it changes to a minimalist set with them walking on a giant board carrying a dice. Finally they make it big and own all the hotels.

An RPG in the vein of Maid RPG, you play a group of potential highschool bachelors all vying for the heart of Carrie. Wait, what? You die at the end? What if you stop... You can't? There's absolutely no way to get the girls to stop the prank? Or to find out about the prank at all to stop it? Well, what if you... What? You get killed by Carrie for suggesting not going to the prom?
