Just curious if there is a place we can post to warn each other about movies that can trigger.

We rented "Gone Baby, Gone" the other night and there is a very graphic scene that triggered me and had me troubled for a few days. If there is a place, please add this movie to it. If not, I'll just put up posts like this when I run into a movie with a possible trigger.

I like the idea of posting warnings on triggers in media.

Gone, Baby, Gone did make me uncomfortable, and I know the scene you're talking about. I like the way the movie played out, though. You think it's a movie about one thing, and it turns out to be a philosophical question. The way the Casey Affleck character at the end sticks by his convictions was impressive, I thought.

That said, if anyone wants to watch the film, just skip the scene where the cops and Affleck are going into the house with the three drug users.

Peace.

Good suggestion. I didn't have the stomach to watch the rest!
