The B-Side – John Singleton

Written by Dan Mecca, May 16, 2019 at 8:22 am 

Welcome to The B-Side, from The Film Stage. Here we explore movies from 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.

Today, however, we break the mold to celebrate a legend. Host Dan Mecca is joined by podcast producer Conor O’Donnell to talk about the films of director John Singleton, who passed away at the young age of 51 in late April. Though we go through all nine feature films he directed, we focus on Poetic Justice, Rosewood, and Baby Boy.

Welcome to The B-Side, a podcast from The Film Stage. Here we explore movies featuring established stars that flopped at the box office, have been forgotten by time, or remain hidden gems.
