I have 4 ideas for movies and I'm wondering if you guy think any of them sound good?

Movie 1 - Three friends go to New Orleans on vacation. After a night on the town they see a psychic shop and decide to go in. The psychic tells them she uses a machine that does sonar-like readings to see if they have spirits "attached" to them. She can rid them of these spirits and it will improve their lives in all areas. The first 2 guys have a few minor spirits that she "clears away" but the third guy has a massive demon-like spirit attached to him. She consults with another psychic and they determine that this spirit is the devil himself trying to take over this guy's body. If the devil succeeds it would cause world-wide chaos and could spell the end of humanity. The psychics go to the authorities to let them know what they have found and tell them that the only way to save the world from the devil would be to kill this guy. The authorities think the psychics are nuts and brush them off so the psychics take it upon themselves to try to kill the guy before the devil can take over his body. The guy also thinks the psychics are crazy and goes on the run but as he's trying to elude them he discovers signs that make him think that the devil is actually trying to take over his body which he eventually does.

Movie 2 - A company plans to open a lion sanctuary in the middle of Los Angeles but while transporting the lions they escape and go on the loose in the city, terrorizing residents. The lions don't actually attack anyone, they are just curious about things they come across in the city. They do a bunch of LA things like surfing, shopping in Beverly Hills and go to many of the city's landmarks.They disrupt a ceremony where an actor is putting his hand prints in cement and they end up putting their paws in cement. Eventually they make their way up to a mansion and end up having a huge pool party. Nothing really happens, it's just a silly/campy movie.

Movie 3 - It's a courtroom drama where a man is on trial for murder. The only witness of the crime was a dog. The district attorney's office has been training a canine unit to extract information from dogs who have seen crimes occur and this is that canine unit 's first case. 3/4's of the way into the movie the witness dog comes into court and goes on the witness stand. The canine attorney then questions the dog to the utter confusion of everyone in the courtroom. They're barking back and forth and at times howling, Nobody knows what's going on but eventually it somehow becomes clear to the jury that the dog saw the defendant commit the murder and he is convicted. After the case there is a party in the D.A.'s office celebrating the win. The D.A. has a special toy gift the for the dog attorney but they can't find him. They look all over the office and finally find him in a closet humping the witness dog. Credits.

Movie 4 - A mysterious man shows up in a bar in a coastal Maine town. He tells the locals his wife recently passed away and that he's looking to move somewhere on the coast and retire. The locals befriend him but they have a number of odd/scary encounters with him. He just shows up at places and it begins to scare a few of them. One of the old guys in town notices a strange boat in the harbor that looks like an old pirate ship. After a closer inspection he sees some scary old hag looking out the window. The man sees an insignia on the boat and decides to research it. In the library he sees this insignia was on a boat from 1924 where a pirate kidnapped two twin girls in that same town. Then he finds evidence of an identical kidnapping in 1824. The old man is convinced that the mysterious stranger is some kind of supernatural pirate who kidnaps twins every 100 years. He's right.
 
Are we talking a short feature, like 20-30 minutes long? Or a full length feature? May impact my answer here.
 
Movie 5. "Clean Up On Aisle 7". An unsuspecting handsome man goes grocery shopping, encountering a sexy check out clerk who demands on opening his package and inspecting his eggs. Finding that some of the items are indeed subpar, they return to the dairy aisle to improve his situation, exploring some of the other products on offer, and expanding the scope of the inspection. The clerk realizes she can't handle this customer alone, so she engages her friend Lydia from bakery to bring her buns over and assist. Realizing the hungry shopper can't thrive on dairy alone, they make their way to the produce section...

Full length. I was trying to be brief with the synopsis's so there's stuff I left out in each one.
Ok. I was thinking story 3 had potential, but needed a B story. Like the dog attorney is romantically attracted to a cat attorney. The trial causes their lives intertwine, and then a cat is called to the stand who testifies that it was the dog that did it. Then the jury must decide: do they believe the dog who testified against the defendant, or the cat who might have a vendetta against the dog? And what will happen to the budding attorney romance?

(ETA: Of course, it turns out the cat was just being an *******.)

I could go for number 3
Yes, the one about the courtroom dogs. Could be titled "Bark Twice For Murder".
“Beg for Justice”
I actually have the titles for the other 3 movies but not this one. I had thought of "Lone Witness" but it's kind of boring. Is there a clever word to stick in there that has to do with dogs?
Just tag lines:

“Man’s worst friend”

All could be great or suck, depending on the characters, dialogue, and relatable situations.
Just start on one with that in mind. Once you get those going, you can likely transfer to any of the others

Winner but make sure the pirate is an expert at cornhole.
 
I like movie ideas 1 & 4, but would suggest you bump them up a notch by having one (or both) of them end with a lion humping a dog (or vice versa!) at the end.

Enjoy raking in your box office receipts!
 
Title: "Paws of Justice"

Characters:
  • Judge: The Honorable Samuel Thompson
  • Dog's Owner: Emily Davis
  • Dog: Max, a German Shepherd
Story Expansion:

The movie opens with the brutal murder of a wealthy businessman, John Parker, in his own home. The only witness to the crime is his loyal German Shepherd, Max. The police arrive at the scene and find Max barking frantically beside his owner's body. Emily Davis, a young and ambitious detective, takes on the case and quickly realizes that the only way to solve the murder is to understand what Max saw.

Enter the district attorney's office's secret weapon: a newly trained canine unit designed to communicate with dogs who have witnessed crimes. The unit is led by a brilliant and eccentric canine psychologist, Dr. Alex Hoffman, who has developed a groundbreaking method for interpreting dog language.

As the trial begins, the defendant, a former employee of John Parker named Michael Thompson, maintains his innocence. The prosecution's case relies heavily on circumstantial evidence, and it becomes clear that without Max's testimony, the case could fall apart.

In a shocking twist, Dr. Hoffman takes the stand as the canine attorney and calls Max as a witness. The courtroom erupts in confusion as Dr. Hoffman begins barking and howling, seemingly communicating with Max. The judge, Samuel Thompson, initially skeptical, becomes intrigued by the unorthodox proceedings.

As the questioning continues, Dr. Hoffman's methods begin to reveal crucial details about the night of the murder. Through a series of barks, whines, and growls, Max "testifies" that he saw Michael Thompson entering the house and arguing with John Parker before the murder took place.

The defense attorney, shocked by the revelations, attempts to discredit Dr. Hoffman's methods, but the jury is captivated by the unusual testimony. In a dramatic final moment, Max lets out a heart-wrenching howl, conveying the emotional impact of witnessing his beloved owner's murder.

The jury deliberates and returns with a guilty verdict, sending shockwaves through the legal community. The district attorney's office celebrates their historic victory, hailing Dr. Hoffman as a hero.

However, the celebration takes an unexpected turn when Dr. Hoffman goes missing during the party. After a frantic search, he is discovered in a compromising position with Max in a closet, much to the shock and embarrassment of everyone present.

The movie ends with a bittersweet note, as the groundbreaking case opens up new possibilities for solving crimes with the help of animal witnesses, but also raises questions about the unorthodox methods employed by Dr. Hoffman. Detective Emily Davis is left to ponder the implications of the case and the future of the canine unit, while Max, now a celebrity in his own right, retires to a life of comfort and belly rubs.
 
Thanks for the feedback, guys. I will say the ideas for #1 and #4 are a bit more fleshed out than what's written here. I don't want to give too much away in a public forum but #1 especially is, I think, kind of unique in how everything plays out. Also, I already have the theme song for #2 that I think could make the trailer go viral. It's an existing 80's song that I've changed the lyrics to. I will be sure to give everyone here a shout out at the Golden Globes.
 
is there any way you could combine number three with the dog lawyers and number four with the pirates a pirate dog would be serously awesome walk that to the plank breadbeard
