Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content. It’s the Great American Podcast where two friends learn about life as they float down the river of streaming services.
Happy New Year and welcome back! We’re STAR-ting off 2022 with a bang. February’s theme is “Team Ups.” When Hollywood wants to pack butts in seats, sometimes, all it takes is a couple movie stars’ names above the title. And this week, Corey chose one that definitely, definitely fits the bill: Rain Man (1988). We had so much fun with Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut, we brought him back. And then…Dustin Hoffman. The Willy Loman of #metoo. Paul and Corey discuss the film’s relationship with representation, and how, potentially, its success in raising awareness of autism may have made it age even more poorly than it otherwise would have.
Also! Welcome to the world, Eva Jane Taskier Pepper!
