The B-Side – Julia Stiles

Written by Dan Mecca, March 6, 2019 at 8:52 am 

Welcome to The B-Side, a new podcast from The Film Stage. Here we explore movies starring established stars that flopped at the box office, have been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems. These aren’t the films that made them famous or kept them famous. These are the other ones.

This time around, we are mixing it up once more with another episode in our series called “Ode To The Almost Movie Star.” These are actors who don’t have B-Sides as much as they are B-Sides. This week we are talking Julia Stiles. From 10 Things I Hate About You to Jason Bourne, we explore the career of an actress who got the movie star shot at a very young age and found some quick success before it all went in another direction.

As she currently stars on the television show Riviera, join us in a dissection of what worked, what went wrong and what is still to come.

The B-Side – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Written by Dan Mecca, February 19, 2019 at 8:36 am 

Welcome to The B-Side, a new podcast from The Film Stage. Here we explore movies starring established stars that flopped at the box office, have been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems. These aren’t the films that made them famous or kept them famous. These are the other ones. So strap in and listen close as we dive into the big swings and big misses from some of the biggest names in the business. In the latest episode, Dan Mecca is joined by podcast producer Conor O’Donnell and Cory Everett, creator of Cinephile: A Card Game (coming out summer 2019), to discuss the b-sides of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The films discussed include End Of Days, The 6th Day and Collateral Damage. Plenty more is explored, including Barbra Streisand’s cloned dogs (for real), that embarrassing final line in The World Is Not Enough, and those unforgettable puns from Batman & Robin. We also briefly mention some lesser-seen recent films he’s made, including Killing Gunther, Maggie & Aftermath.
