October 04, 2019 06:44 PM PDT
In a wild left turn for the DC film universe, director Todd Phillips’ latest film, JOKER, takes us back to Gotham City in order to witness the birth of the Clown Prince of Crime. When we first meet the titular villain, his name is Arthur Fleck, a failed comedian who has been isolated, bullied and disregarded by society. As things begin to unravel in his life (and his mind), Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the iconic DC villain known as the Joker.
This week, in our 100th episode, our SF team tells us what the site means to them, we announce a VERY special giveaway and Paul and Julie Levac stop by to talk about the dangers and brilliance of Todd Phillips’ foray into criminal madness.1on1 with Adam Bolt (HUMAN NATURE)

In this, our Season Premiere (and 99th episode!), we venture into the deepest regions of the solar system to talk about AD ASTRA. Starring Brad Pitt, AD ASTRA takes place in the near future and tells the story of Roy McBride, an astronaut who remains fearless when faced with the most impossible of situations, yet terrified to deal with his own issues. When the military enlists Roy to travel to Neptune to discover the source behind dangerous electrical pulses that threaten the universe, he is up for the task. However, when he also discovers that his father—who abandoned their family when he was very young—may be involved, Roy is forced to grapple with his own feelings of anger and hurt in the process. This week on the show, ScreenFish veterans Matthew Cimone and podcaster David Peck join us to talk about dealing with letting go of our anger, losing (and maybe reclaiming wonder) and the power of relationships.1on1 with Julianne Nicholson (MONOS)
