There are a lot of gifs with bright, flashing colors, and many of the animations have them as well. There is a way around it, though- the Accessible Homestuck Project (accessiblehomestuckproject.tumblr.com) has image descriptions for most of the comic right now (and hopefully will be all of it, eventually), so you can know exactly what's going on without being exposed to strobes.

Mild flashing lights. I do not think photosensitive watchers need to be concerned but still exercise caution.

Near the end of the movie when the old lady takes Barbie's hands and tells her to close her eyes there's a montage of people in various stages of light that has a shifting light effect that could be troublesome for photosensitive viewers. When the characters start talking again you'll know it's over

Apart from the main film, the very beginning's logo flashes are similar to a strobe effect. It's the only bit of the film that triggered my migraines, which strobe lights usually do.

At an hour and a half in, there's a scene (starting when Evelyn holds a baseball bat) that's nearly a minute of flashing shots of Michelle Yeoh, who also screams for the last few seconds of that sequence. It's startling and could prove overwhelming, especially in IMAX.

There is flashing lights in so many scenes. If you have sensitivity to that I’d recommend maybe skipping this film.
