QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A young woman tries to ward off attempts by an evil leader to join him in overthrowing an even more powerful emperor, all while her rebel Resistance prepares once again to take on an intergalactic military dictatorship.
PLOT:
In this ninth installment of the original "Star Wars" film series, Emperor Palpatine (IAN McDIARMID) has somehow returned from the dead and orders the evil ruler of the First Order, Kylo Ren (ADAM DRIVER), to find and kill Rey (DAISY RIDLEY), a young woman who went from being a scavenger to helping the rebel Resistance take on the intergalactic military dictatorship. Having been trained by the late Jedi master Luke Skywalker (MARK HAMILL), Rey is quite powerful in all things related to the Force, something not lost on Kylo Ren who actually wants her to join him on the Dark Side to overthrow Palpatine.

Still working for General Leia Organa (CARRIE FISHER), Rey wants no part of that and instead is interested in finding something Luke had long been searching for and ends up accompanied by impulsive fighter pilot Poe Dameron (OSCAR ISAAC), former stormtrooper turned Resistance fighter Finn (JOHN BOYEGA), and wookiee Chewbacca (JOONAS SUOTAMO), with some assistance from his and Leia's old friend, Lando Calrissian (BILLY DEE WILLIAMS).

With Palpatine having creating an enormous fleet of destroyers equipped with planet-killing laser cannons, Rey and her friends do what they can to stop both Kylo Ren and the emperor.

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!!!
