Watch This Instead
Uses the Bechdel Test API to figure out whether your movie passes the Bechdel Test and Imdb Ratings to suggest a better movie if it doesn't.
What's the Bechdel Test?
It's a test of women's representation in film. There are three criteria:
- There must be at least two women in the film;
- Who talk to one another;
- About something other than a man.
Watch This Instead has rating info for over 6000 movies. When you search for new movies, they get added to the database.
The Bechdel Test API is user-driven. If you'd like to contribute so that the API (and my site) has more movies, go to http://bechdeltest.com/add/ (note: I am not affiliated with bechdeltest.com, but their API is at the core of this project)
It's also a Twitter Bot!
Just @-mention @bechdelbot with the name of your film and the bot will reply with whether it passed or failed the Bechdel test!
