After a little time to mull over the latest instalment in the Star Wars series, Screen Verdict is back with their next review.
Along the way we crunch the finances to make a bold prediction on the future of Star Wars, take our cues from Luke Skywalker on how to look cool while waiting for a meeting, and sift our way through a number of plot twists... or plot holes.

Along the way we discuss how far down the Upside Down rabbit hole we'd go to win someone's affection, show how easy it is for an unlikeable character to redeem themselves with an even less likeable character on the show, and why one of the episodes might have been better as a DVD extra.

Also on the podcast Matt reveals how he related to the film now that he can drive, whether referencing someone's name in a song is a good pick-up strategy and Matt and Jonathan figure out their Halloween costumes for 2018.

Our very first podcast was a review of 'Cars 2' followed by a ranking of every Pixar film. With podcast 200 we come full circle as we review 'Cars 3' and update our Pixar rank.
Along the way we share the Screen Verdict origin story (because Hollywood loves reboots), tackle some existential questions (where do cars come from?), discuss how to get back at your rivals post-retirement, ponder whether millennials are the most jealous generation, and ask self-aware Pixar were when throwing shade at merchandising.
We then give 'Cars 3' our Screen Verdict rating and place it in our infamous Pixar Rank!
Lastly in Housekeeping we discuss the true secret objective of Screen Verdict and the future of the podcast.

Lastly in Housekeeping we share some dubious pre-wedding health advice from podcast friend Dutchy, and tease an upcoming milestone - Podcast 200!
