A movie where a person first realizes they are dead but still existing in the world because their smart phone wont respond to their touch?

touchid might not, though

Do touchscreens really respond to ghosts?

ghosts are known to disrupt electronic devices so manipulating capacitive touchscreens should be easy for them

though tbh I imagined gbro was describing a more solid undead thing, since ghosts exist between worlds plus as soon as they tried to pick up their phone their dang hand would go right through it

Idea: In the next Batman movie, the Batman rescues his love interest from a bunch of evil henchmen and then offers to give her a ride home. When they get into the bat mobile and he turns on the ignition, the cassette player starts-up (the Batman forgot he had left it on) and it is revealed that the Batman was listening to "Self-Control" by Laura Brannigan at full volume.

He ejects it immediately. Unfortunately, the tape has "Bruce's Crime-fighting Mix - DO NOT TAPE OVER" written on it in white out. His love interest catches a glimpse, and immediately guesses the Batman's secret identity.

Her response (which is shameless product placement).

"You'd think you could afford an iPod!"

My brother and I have a pitch for a "Batman movie" about the Question solving a mystery in Gotham, in which Batman never appears but Bruce Wayne briefly appears played by Jon Hamm.

(It's the Renee Montoya Question)

idea:
a supercut of people being dismissive of things that have become normalized

like "way to be all high-tech"
in response to "can I get your e-mail?"

a hidden camera show called EXPOSURE where the prank is to say subtlely racist things in conversation until the target either vaguely smiles or does not disagree
the intent of the presenters in doing this is never quite clarified

A horror movie about a sound that makes people go mad and homicidal. The story is from the point of view of a deaf woman, who is trying to figure out what's going on. There is no sound in the movie.

does it have a soundtrack or is it completely without audio so you keep hearing everyone in the audience coughing and whispering and w/e

Maybe like they distribute 3D glasses, they can surgically make you deaf and then reverse the process after the movie, once that tech exists.

Complete silence. But the movie will be so scary, you'll mostly hear the screams of the audience.

New idea: a horror radio play about a sight that drives people mad, from the point of view of a blind woman.

Having a blind person in a radio play is probably good for exposition purposes.

I kind of imagined it as a silent film, complete with intertitles.

This isn't exactly my idea but like:

a cop whose siren doesn't work and he tries to pull people over by honking at them.

Starrs & Streips, a sitcom about an American couple in the late 1940s who find themselves raising four German children who were orphaned by the war. Can former G.I. Jack Starr learn to love his former enemies? Or will his love-hate relationship with little Heinrich finally lead the former Hitler Youth to build that bomb he's been dreaming of? All will be revealed in the series finale!

(Heinrich tries to blow-up Harry Truman, but Jack teaches him the true meaning of family, and afterwards they all go out for chocolate malts).
