Movie only tag

Since apparently writing about what happened in the source material for a film can be removed as a spoiler, movie posts need to have a "movie only" and "books included" tag.

+1 on this, this seems entirely reasonable.

(The spoiler risk here is presumably mostly "don't spoil the book for people that have only seen the movie"? with a few other cases for multipart adaptations.)

Precisely. We have separate posts for books included and series only for shows, but not for movies. It would be great if we could have a "book included" option for movies that are based on books or other sources so people who want to talk about how the book and film deviate can do that without concern for people who don't wish to be spoiled. I'm honestly not sure why this isn't an option already.
