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.
In solidarity with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike (the latter of which Paul and Corey are both members), Paul and Corey have decided to change things up:
For the duration of the strike, they will: 1) cover only films about labor unions/strikes/solidarity/etc.; 2) not cover any new releases (that includes Corey’s Pass or Plays); and 3) not recommend any streaming services for where you can find these films.
Following Paul’s choice, The Killing Floor (1984), Corey wanted to lighten the mood a little and picked Billy Elliot (2000).
A beloved film when it came out and adapted into an equally successful musical, Paul and Corey were excited to dive in. But… it doesn’t quite hold up as well as they remembered. THERE’S A LOT TO LOVE in the film, but it’s definitely a film of its day (and not quite in the way you might guess!).
This Episode’s Focus: Billy Elliot (2000)
Host’s Choice: Corey Pepper
