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.
