QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A young woman tries to convince a reclusive Jedi master to teach her the ways of the Force so that she can help a rebel resistance survive an all-out attack by an inter-galactic military dictatorship.
PLOT:
In this eighth installment of the original "Star Wars" film series, Rey (DAISY RIDLEY) -- a young woman who went from being a scavenger to helping the rebel resistance take on an intergalactic military dictatorship known as the First Order -- has arrived on a remote island on a remote planet accompanied by the only surviving pilot of the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca (PETER MAYHEW). She hopes to convince reclusive Jedi master Luke Skywalker (MARK HAMILL) to teach her the ways of the Force and thus help the rebellion. He's initially reluctant and becomes worried upon seeing how powerful her connection is with the Force, something he last witnessed in Kylo Ren (ADAM DRIVER).

That man now serves the evil ruler of the First Order, Supreme Leader Snoke (ANDY SERKIS), and alongside General Hux (DOMHNALL GLEESON) is determined to wipe out the rebels. They're led by General Leia Organa (CARRIE FISHER) and Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo (LAURA DERN) who've just ordered an evacuation of a rebel base and are fleeing in space from the First Order's armada of warships. That doesn't sit well with impulsive fighter pilot Poe Dameron (OSCAR ISAAC), but like everyone else, he's concerned that Hux's fleet has managed to track them through hyperspace and once again started their assault on the rebel fleet.

Learning that, former stormtrooper turned resistance fighter Finn (JOHN BOYEGA) and brilliant maintenance worker Rose Tico (KELLY MARIE TRAN) come up with a plan that might allow the rebels to escape. But they'll need the expertise of codebreaker DJ (BENICIO DEL TORO) to help them deactivate the tracking device the First Order is using. As they attempt that and the assault on the rebel fleet continues, Rey tries to learn everything she can from Luke, all while hoping he'll return to action to help them take on the villainous regime.

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.
