QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: In the mid 21st century, a LAPD officer who's assigned to find and kill rebellious, older model android replicants makes a startling discovery that shakes his world and that of others.
PLOT:
It's the year 2049 and K (RYAN GOSLING) is a "blade runner," a LAPD officer whose job is to find and kill older model realistic androids known as replicants that turned rebellious decades ago. Since then, they've been replaced by newer models built by industrialist Niander Wallace (JARED LETO), but with some of those older models still out and about, K takes his marching orders from Lieutenant Joshi (ROBIN WRIGHT) and tracks down and "retires" them.

After one such mission, K makes a startling discovery that Joshi claims could upset the balance of the world and she orders that the evidence be destroyed. It's something that also draws the interest of Niander who sends his ruthless assistant, Luv (SYLVIA HOEKS), to get her hands on the result of that discovery, but K wants to find that for himself, what with wondering how it might tie in with childhood memories he isn't even sure are real. With his "girlfriend" Joi (ANA DE ARMAS) in tow, he then sets out to find a former and now long-missing blade runner, Deckard (HARRISON FORD), in hopes that he might be able to help him uncover the truth.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
