i just figured i'd warn for anyone who may need it, bc i was given no warnings whatsoever. fktjt

altho ig ppl could just always check doesthedogdie.com

for real tho, if you ever need any content warnings for a movie, check out doesthedogdie.com

it doesn't just warn for animal death anymore. a ways back it started adding more and more content warnings.

it's gotten to warning for specific kinds of deaths, specific kinds of trauma and abuse, hatecrimes, specific mutilations, addictions, etc.

it's really really helpful for people with any kinds of triggers for stuff like that.

@vee Woah I had no idea about this! I need this for one single very specific thing and it's in their list which is amazing to me because it's very rarely considered for content warnings. Thank you so so so much!!!

@vee It does have its limitations, as one might expect - it doesn't really warn much against Passengers, which has a horrific central premise which the filmmakers largely handwave away as just perfectly understandable given the isolation of one of the main characters.

@porsupah @vee (wait whats the warning you think Passengers should get? I havent seen it)

“Passengers”, description why it’s deeply problematic, spoilers 

@Satsuma @vee As you may know, the premise is of a colony spaceship where all the passengers are in cryostasis for the long journey. One man’s pod malfunctions, and he wakes up, with no way of re-entering that state - by the time they arrive, he’ll be dead. So he’s got an entire ship with no company beyond robots.

He winds up reading about the other passengers, and begins developing a crush on one of them, reading her stories, his wishes for them as a couple.. and eventually wakes her up too, condemning her to the same fate of dying en route, for his sake alone.

Bonus chuckles: he pretends her waking up was /also/ a malfunction.

Somehow, I understand they wind up in love. Naturally. O.o

@porsupah @vee ah yeah I remember seeing discussions about that now! Yeah its a super creepy premise

@porsupah it is crowd-sourced, so if any entry is lacking, it's because enough people haven't contributed to it yet. or possibly sometimes contributed poorly. fkgjg
