Have you ever felt like there's an invisible, unidentifiable block between you at present and the potential you see and feel in yourself? Have you ever wondered why it's so damn hard to bridge that gap and actually BE that person? I think a lot of us have, and I've stumbled across more people than I ever imagined who, deep down, are fucking terrified of all that they could be, do, and have. We're gonna dig into the why and start moving forward. Interested in a luxury 1:1 online health coaching experience?

Welcome to the What Are We Doing Podcast with your host, Levi. Today we're talking about everything from reality TV to movie adaptations of popular books. We start by exploring the impact of reality TV on teenage girls, and the questionable lessons it teaches about love and relationships. We then delve into the power dynamics of age gaps in pop culture, and whether or not they're okay. Next, we discuss generation alpha and millennial labels, and the impact they have on personal relationships. We also share our experiences with growing up with divorced parents and breaking the cycle of family dynamics. Shifting gears, we take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about our early internet experiences and the importance of online safety. We also discuss the impact of political polarization on family relationships and the root of conspiracy theories in the American experience. In a more lighthearted turn, we talk about the upcoming Harry Potter and the Cursed Child movie adaptation, and our hopes for the film. We also discuss the benefits of original movies and A24 movies, as well as the big blockbusters, like "Uncut Gems" featuring Julia Fox. Of course, we can't talk about movies without discussing the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the impact it's had on the film industry. We also discuss movie adaptations of popular books and why they often fall short. We wrap up the episode by talking about Disney Channel and Nickelodeon alumni podcasts and reboots, and our thoughts on recent cancellations and reboots. We also discuss the Zoey 101 reboot and Jamie Lynn Spears' involvement. Thanks for tuning in to another episode of the What Are We Doing Podcast.

On the latest episode, we go back to the basics and cover a newly released yet old-fashioned formulaic sports flick: Hustle. Released on Netflix in 2022, Hustle finds Adam Sandler in a groove. This film sits nicely between his prestige work in Uncut Gems and the juvenile sensibilities we've all become accustomed to expecting from the Happy Madison brand. It is packed full with NBA cameos and call-outs, and delivers its emotional and athletic beats with panache and intensity. For a feel-good and by-the-numbers underdog sports flick, Hustle is a winner. Enjoy our conversation as friend and NBA super-fan Juan joins in to chat this refreshing return of The Sandman to fine form as the film's lead Stanley Sugarman. Juan lends the episode a ton of insight on AND1 mixtapes and Anthony Edwards' sassy personality and the fun ways this film played with NBA icons' identities both on and off-the-court. It's a fun chat, if we say so ourselves! Thanks of listening!

Alright, it's the podcast you've all been waiting for: For all, three of you who listen, anyway. Today I'm going to name call and gush on my top films of 2022, so let's get right to it. The bottom of my list and number 17 is Joradn Peele's Nope. I believe it's his third movie. He made Get Out, which I wasn't a fan of, but I know I need to rewatch, and Us, a movie that I absolutely adored. So Peele was already batting 50% with me. When I saw he was tackling aliens, I was all in. So, before I go on, I want to give a disclaimer that I may be biased against this film because, well, I wrote it. You heard me. Years and years ago when I was striving to become an author, I came up with a concept and wrote the first several chapters of a book where flying saucers descended upon a Western-type ghost town. Yup, with the flying horse and people getting beamed up, and even the rain water cascading down around the flying saucer to create the illusion that you were inside a circular waterfall. Except in my version, there was going to be literally thousands of spaceships that covered the face of the earth, blocking out the rain and the sun while the alien residents lived above us where their saucers formed a sort of landscape for them to live their lives on while the rest of us died from lack of sunlight and earth essentially became their underground sewer system. So, Peele's movie didn't go quite the way I planned the story, but there were enough similarities that I kept being taken out of the movie. I'm not saying he stole my idea or whatever, because I realize there's only so many good ideas floating around in the ether for us to grab hold of. He just got the idea and made a movie about it. So I say good on him. Though this isn't may favorite film of the year, it's still an enjoyable watch, and I'll probably revisit it one day. Number 16 is Lost City. This one stars Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, but I'll be honest, it was Brad Pitt who was the true star in this movie. My gripe with it is that it did that thing that most comedies do, where the first half is really funny, like it knows it wants to be a comedy, but then the second half completely forgets to tell the jokes. So this is a half-and-half movie for me. I recommend watching the first half, for sure, at least everything with Brad Pritt, but if you turn it off halfway through, you're really not missing much.Number 15 is Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers. That's right, it's the Roger Rabbit sequel we never got, but it's certainly a good companion piece. I remember I laughed quite a bit toward the beginning, and the mystery element held my attention throughout. Also, kudos to Disney for not pumping this cute little film with any woke crap. None that I saw, anyway. I think if you never saw the original cartoon it's based off of, some of it will be lost on you, especially the nostalgic scenes, but I think overall it was a creative, out-of-the-box concept that was executed quite well from people that clearly, CLEARLY loved and embraced the original source material. Father Stu is a movie that I think had a theatrical release, but you can catch it now on Netflix. It's number 14 on my list. This one's got Mark Whalberg and my very own Mel Gibson. These two respectable gentlemen are men of faith in real life -- you can keep that anti-semitism crap to yourself, I won't hear it -- and so they were able to pull from real life experiences to tell this true story of a boxer-turned-priest. It's low on my list because it was filmed in the most conventional of ways where it felt like I'd seen it all before, but I still respect it for what it is, and I love that faith-based movies can still be made accessible to the general public. Number 13 is Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio. I did not want to see this movie, but the reviews convinced me otherwise. That's probably what's going to happen with Avatar: Way of Water. But this movie was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. It was pleasant because the characters were special and life-like, and it was unexpected, because this wasn't the same Pinocchio story we've been told a million times. There are several deviations from the source material that don't compromise the source material's intended morals or values, or even the story itself. So if you're a fan of the Pinocchio story in any way, but want something different from the characters, this is definitely the right movie for you. Nic Cage stars as Nic Cage in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, and this is movie number 12 on my list, though honestly, I could have thrown this movie anywhere below my top 5 and be happy where it landed. I just kind of stuck it in there at random. And though Nic Cage is why you go see this movie, Pedro Pascal is why you stay. Pedro Pascal, you'll remember him as Mando from the Mandalorian, is the true star and heart of this movie. I'd even go so far as to say he delivered one of the best performances of the year, because he just won you over with his sweetness and charm. It was like watching a cute cat video and you can't take your eyes from it. Go into this movie blind, like I did, and I think you'll have a lot of fun, especially if you're familiar with a lot of Nic Cage's work. If not, you'll still have a good time, because you'll just assume that they're referencing another one of his movies. Also, Face/Off is his best film ever. The Adam Project is another one of those films that's 50/50 for me. This one's number 11 on my list. It ought to be much lower because the fighting and sci-fi stuff I didn't care a lick about, but the stuff between Ryan Reynolds and his younger self and his parents was really emotional for me. It's been a long time since I've seen this movie, but the parts that they were trying to be sentimental really hit me deep. I just wish they stretched that stuff out more than the action stuff, because it would have brought it from a good movie to a great movie. Ryan Reynolds is, as usual, wonderful and charming. Number 10 is Where the Crawdads sing. Like The Adam Project, you can find this on Netflix. This movie had me guessing the whole time. I thought the lead actress, Daisy Edgar-Jones was astonishing as Kya, a girl who is suspected of having murdered a man. She had many hats to wear as that character, from hopeless romantic to a reclusive hermit to a woman staring at death row. I loved the story and the setting as it had a very Harper Lee vibe to it. And man, oh man, was it great to see David Strathairn again! You'd recognize him from Memphis Belle, A League of Their Own, and one of my favorite suspense movies: The River Wild. He really hit it out of the park as a lawyer anyone would trust. Oh, and yes, the ending of this movie surprised me, so that gave it some extra points.Weird: The Al Yankovick Story lands at number 9. Honestly, I could have interchanged this with Where the Crawdads Sing as I liked both the same. But this movie was so ... brave in doing what it did. They sold it as one type of movie, but then you get something else entirely, and for once, that wasn't a bad thing. The movie lives up to its title as it is weird, but it's a good weird. It had me smiling all the way through. And Danielle Radcliffe -- way to shed the Harry Potter image, my man! He's no longer JUST the boy who lived. He's now the boy who lived who can also sing and do a really go impression of Weird Al. This next one I'm going to get some flack on because you're probably going to insist I move it much higher up on my list. But number 8 is Everything Everywhere All at Once. This is a film I highly respect for its ambition, its daring, and it's originality. This is also a film I would never have wanted to edit - can you imagine that monumental task? It was just so smart how it was told, and of course it was great to see Short Round back at it. But I've got to say, I'm watching this movie not knowing Short Round was making a comeback, and until I finally looked it up on my phone, I though it was Jackie Chan, but they'd de-aged him. And no, that's not because I think all Asian actors look the same - so don't even. I mentioned Memphis Belle earlier, I get all those guys mixed up too, so it goes both ways. Anyway, if you haven't seen this movie I highly recommend it just so you can experience having your senses assaulted in the best possible way. The only reason it's not higher up on my list is because the themes just didn't apply to me, that's all. And damn, those rocks. When the rock thing happened, I thought I'd be the only one moved by it, but it turns out, everyone talks about those two rocks. So I'm glad I wasn't alone there. Michael Bay is BACK!! You know, The Rock, Armageddon, Bad Boys, that director! Ambulance is number 7, and I'm so glad it was good. I mean, I knew it would be. I cannot be any happier that Michael Bay seems to be done with the Transformers and Ninja Turtle crap. I weep to think of what could have been if he didn't make so many of those stupid movies. He was may favorite director all through high school and college, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Yes, shit gets blown up, the camera never stops, and the action is over the top. Uhhhhh.... Who became king of Movies and said that was a bad thing? Ambulance was a great heist movie, that has a to-the-point bank robbery scene, a fantastic setup for an unintentional hostage situation, and it all pays off. It might be a little bloated time-wise, but that's part of the package of a Michael Bay film. The three leads, Jake Gyllenhall, Yayhya Abdul Manteen II, and Eiza Gonzalez gave it their all in a silly action film, and the whole thing was just a blast to watch. Now we're at the portion of the list where the following six movies are just so good that they could really be shuffled and I'd be okay with the outcome, because these are the standout movies of the year for me and I'll tell you why. But first, a word from my sponsor. Number 6 on my list of best movies of 2022 is A Christmas Story Christmas. When I first heard this movie was coming out, I was cautious. And they didn't start advertising for it until a month or so before Thanksgiving, which was all the more reason to worry. Sure, it's a dumb title, but what are you going to do when the knockoff sequel stole the tittle "A Christmas Story 2"? Peter Billingsley reprises his role as Ralphie Parker, and it's shocking to see how much like the little boy he still looks, especially when he's gazing upward indulging in a daydream. I love how this sequel wasn't a cookie cutter remake of the original (though some can argue that it was), but it followed a storyline that was appropriate for the aging characters. I'll be honest, this movie had me tearing up more than once. As a father, the dad is my favorite character in the original, and he's not in this one because he passed away, but you can still feel his presence in almost every scene in this very special Christmas movie that I'll be sure to revisit with my kids every year from now on. And side note: How crazy is it that it's been almost 20 years since we got a Christmas movie worth its salt (I'm referring to Elf being the last one)? Jackass Forever made number 5 on my list. Is this a masterpiece? Ehh... part of it were, actually. Is it award-winning? It should be. But most importantly: Is it funny? No, it was hilarious. These guys set out with one job and one job only, and they pulled it off. Their job was to make people laugh harder than anyone has in a very long time. The laughs came in quick and hard. There were part of this movie where I was in so much pain. Only The Office and Dumb and Dumber can do that for me. Do me a favor: Set aside your supposed maturity for 90 minutes and just indulge in some low-brow sophomoric pranks and stunts. Allow yourself that treat. We're all so freaking uptight most of the time, and this movie asks if it's really worth it to be that way all the time. Four is Fall. This is another one that's not a masterpiece by any means, but it's the second scariest movie I've ever seen, period. The first scariest movie for me is United 93 because that stuff actually happened and the tension through that movie is just tight as a belay. Speaking of belays, Fall is the second scariest movie I've seen. Like, now I know what some people feel like when they watch a shark movie. It finally clicked with me! See, I don't scare easily. Horror movies often bore me, so it's one of my least favorite genres. And to be clear, this movie isn't meant to be a horror film. And when I say it scared me, what I mean is that it kept me in a state of perpetual queasiness. I wasn't necessarily scared for the girls trapped on this 2,000 foot tower in the middle of nowhere - I kept imagining myself up there and how often I would just freeze, or maybe even black out. I can handle heights as long as I'm strapped in, like in a plane, or hell, I'd even go hang-gliding. But my wife and kids will tell you, I can't even climb up a ladder without coming really close to peeing. I think that's just a significant amount of lack of trust in my body and its ability to hang on. So if you're scared of heights, this movie will definitely scare the shit out of you, and may even make you puke. It follows the lines of The Shallows and my personal favorite, 127 Hours, where you're just stuck with the main character in one spot for over an hour. Oh, and Phone Booth, let's not forget about that one - I love Phone Booth. But a word of warning: I was planning on showing this to my daughter because she loves climbing so much, but then as I'm watching it, I realized, this movie's rated R. A soft R, because of several uses of the F-word and some pretty intense gross-out scenes and lots of blood toward the end. Well, it's not actually rated R, but it's PG-13. That's just a head's up for you parents. I guess they're allowed to show blood and say the F-word more than once now and still get a PG-13 rating? It's not a complaint, I'm just passing the information on. Oh, boy! We're down to my top three best films of the year. You might remember an Adam Sandler film coming out on Netflix earlier in the year. You may or may not have watched it. You might have heard about it and saw that it was about basketball, and you were like, "There's never been a good basketball movie made, except for Hoosiers." And you'd be right, at least until Hustle hit the screen. I am not hard pressed to call Hustle one of the best sports movies ever, and I know that's a really high bar. But you've got to watch it! It's a lot more positive and happier than Uncut Gems, another Adam Sandler winner. And yeah, it's another one "of those" sports movies, but it's just so damn good, it hit me in all the right places. Number 2 is Top Gun: Maverick. If you're one of the two people who haven't seen it yet, stop everything in your life and watch it right now. At this point, there's no excuse. This is Tom Cruise at the top of his game like always. And the funny thing is, I wasn't even looking forward to it because the original Top Gun is so ... meh, expect for the soundtrack. If you haven't seen it, believe the hype, because it's one of those extremely rare movies that lives up in every way. I've seen the movie three times already, and I can watch it again right now. I'll probably show it to my kids next summer. So as surprising that it is that Maverick isn't my number one pick, you must be wondering what is. My number one movie of the year is one that was made just for me. Like, I firmly believe the filmmakers and everyone involved were thinking about me through ever step of the moviemaking process as they executed this film from start to finish. And if you look at all the movies I've brought up prior to this, we've been in the jungle, visited World War II, and saw the future. We've ridden on swamp boats, been slung out of giant sling shots, climbed the highest towers and took our jets beyond Mach 10. It seems like the only thing we haven't ridden is a train. And that's what my number 1 movie is all about: Bullet Train. Brad Pitt is his usual charming and hilarious self in this heist/mystery/comedy/action film. It's directed by David Leitch. Imagine the director of Deadpool 1 & 2 making a Quentin Tarantino film, more accurately, a volume of Kill Bill, with Brad Pitt thrown in. The dialogue is so sharp, the situations are extremely funny, and the action is eye-popping. I film never bored me - the only emotion I didn't feel while watching it was sadness, because there's just nothing sad or depressing being offered here. This movie is the highest of recommends, so much so, that David Leitch, who also brought us John Wick and Hobbs and Shaw, is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors. Now I'm going to go watch Atomic Blonde. Thank you for joining me on my super-long diatribe as I gushed over my favorite films from this year. I never got to Avatar: Way of Water, though I was planning on it and things got kind of complicated. Marcel with Shoes On was another one I missed, I'll be watching Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with my kids shortly (I got it for them for Christmas). Other films I missed but wanted to see were Moonfall, Confess Fletch, The Fablemans, Glass Onion, Violent Night, and The Whale. But I think I still saw a pretty good number of films. Thanks for listening and may your new year be filled with love, spiritual health, and blessings. Email me your favorite films of 2022, especially if there's one that I missed that you think should be on my list. But also feel free to argue with me on any of my choices. Not maliciously, of course, because I have a fragile ego. Keep it spirited.

Film critic Amy Nicholson (whose 'Unspooled' podcast with Paul Scheer is currently in its fourth season) first encountered 'Click' as a budding young critic and USC student. She didn't love it, but it did make her cry. This conversation with Jordan is an exploration of why that might be, alongside the ways things have improved and devolved in the years since the movie's 2006 release.Then, one quick thing about an unsung badass Christmas movie, The Long Kiss Goodnight.***With Jordan Crucchiola and Amy Nicholson

This week, Hallie steals one of Justin's worst ideas by committing to a two-part, 12-question episode. Each question features one of the 12 traditional birthstones, and we also mine for information about international business, basketball, and 90s music!2:36: Q1 (Sports & Games): What power forward who played with the Minnesota Timberwolves for 12 years and coincidentally played himself in the film Uncut Gems, shares his name with the birthstone for January?8:04: Q2 (Times & Places): Amethyst, February's birthstone, was originally thought to be one of the most precious until large deposits were found in what South American country, the world's largest producer of sugarcane, soy, coffee, and oranges?17:49: Q3 (Movies & TV): March's birthstone, bloodstone, is also the name of a 1988 film starring Rajinikanth, who also starred in various films in what industry, also known as Bombay cinema?26:41: Q4 (Everything Else): What international cartel specializes in the mining, sourcing, trading, and manufacturing of diamonds, the birthstone for April?31:15: Q5 (Arts & Literature): What is the name of the sixth book in the Oz books by L. Frank Baum, which includes the name of the birthstone for May?35:58: Q6 (Music): Rumor has it that the name of what band came from the name of Eddie Vedder's great-grandmother and not from the name of June's birthstone?Theme music: "Thinking it Over" by Lee Rosevere, licensed under CC BY 2.0E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/quizandhers/Twitter: https://twitter.com/quizandhersInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/quizandhers/Cooking with Grief Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/cooking-with-grief/id1436653211Snehi on Twitter: @snehi_rgfan
EPISODE 92 - Clark and John welcome back their friend Will who's filling in for Hyung while he's with the Team Canada Junior Baseball Team in Mexico. They start the show, off the top, by talking about the reported movie about the high-end sports card world, which is said to be in production for Netflix by the Safdie brothers featuring Adam Sandler. The trio have previously worked together on the critically-acclaimed film, "Uncut Gems." The guys discuss whether they think a dramatized movie on the sports card world will have any impact on the hobby. In this week's Hobby Headlines, Clark, John, and Will dive deeper in discussion about unlicensed product (ie. Panini Prizm Baseball) and whether it's worth investing in. Will states why he collects certain inserts and cards of unlicensed product and what he finds appealing about them. They also ponder if Fanatics ends up buying Panini America and they come out with licensed Panini Prizm baseball cards, would the value of the unlicensed products increase or decrease as a result? Next, Clark introduces a new segment called, "Change My Mind" in which he gives four hobby hot takes, and if John and/or Will disagree with any of them, they would try to "change Clark's mind" with their opinion. Some of the hobby hot takes in this segment include: Soccer cards won't see a bump in value during the World Cup; Hockey cards will only be relevant in Canada; and 1/1 cards from ultra-modern sets will be worth 75% less in one or two years. Lastly, as usual, the show ends with the regular "Pick One" segment where each host names two cards or sets, and then debate which one they would rather invest in. The pairs chosen this week include: Trevor Zegras rookie cards vs. Cole Caufield rookie cards; Shohei Ohtani 2018 Bowman Chrome Red Refractor /5 (PSA 9) vs. Luka Doncic 2018 Panini Prizm Gold /10 (BGS 9); and Lionel Messi 2004 Panini Sports Mega Cracks rookie card raw vs. Lionel Messi 2014 Prizm Silver World Cup (PSA 10). -------------------------------- CONNECT WITH US!

She loved working on projects such as: “Unstoppable, The Musical” with the children of Haven Kids Rock under casting director and musician, Nef Jones and with Carly Sullivan, activist, actress and producer on her “Marginalized Murder” series. Additionally, she helped clients secure recurring and guest-starring roles on numerous episodics such as Law and Order: SVU, Limitless, Power, Orange Is The New Black, Gotham, FBI: Most Wanted! and Difficult People.

Brewer also landed national commercials for clients with the likes of Coke, Verizon, Bank of America, Chanel, Nike, PNC Bank, Merrill Lynch and Old Navy. Jenevieve was not only a major agent, talent manager and producer, but a vibrant energetic force, a light of enthusiasm, real, down-to-earth, forthrightness, deeply personal care, passion, an empathetic activist in the LGBTQ+ community, advocate for the underdog and had a keen sense of duty towards diversity. A woman of faith, she loved to laugh! She loved animals and swam every day for her personal joy and wellness, giving to St.Jude's and the Food Banks.

Beloved Jenevieve, was a longtime NCOPM member (National Conference of Personal Managers), gaining the respect from both her clients and peers nationally and internationally…….. Jenevieve Brewer passed away suddenly on October 14, 2021…... “Since you came into my life in 2003, you have been my strongest advocate in the business, pushing me to do things I didn't imagine I could do. Even with my podcast, absolutely without a question coming on. I'm so sorry you were not able to see the end result, after all your encouragement to write it, throughout the years, but I am so very happy to have our story in it. I can still hear your voice and chuckle. I miss your “Hi Oz” greeting on the phone, your “xoxo” and your “I love you” with the heart emojis, at the end of your emails. Your light will never be dimmed in my heart, JEN!” I LOVE YOU! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/ozzie-stewart/support

There are two types of Adam Sandler fans: those who love raunchy, dumb, slapdash, quick-turnaround, cash-grab, overlit junk - like Hubie Halloween, Ridiculous 6, Jack & Jill,and Little Nicky, and those who enjoy brilliant acting, thoughtful screenplays, and artful direction - as seen in The Meyerowitz Stories, Hustle,and Punch Drunk Love. MG is in the latter camp, but even we were unprepared for the insane intensity, crazy filmmaking, and the tour-de-force central performance of the film we're taking on tonight: Uncut Gems!

In the canon of American Pie-esque romps, Eurotrip clocks in as (debatably) one of the most forgettable, save for a smash hit cameo provided by the incomparable Matt Damon. Yet, somehow, the collective consciousness of both me and my guest found a nostalgic spot in our hearts for the film. So this week we decided to re-examine. Come for the random comparison of Eurotrip to Uncut Gems, and stay for the thought provoking insight about how far American politics have come.

Truth Tastes Funny with Hersh Rephun
The mantra of Aryeh & Co is that "the quality of your dreams is never compromised." The Truth Tastes Funny credo is "Laugh. Survive. Thrive." And in this episode, the two philosophies meet, in the form of a conversation between Hersh and Aryeh Rephun. While father and son have gone into completely different businesses, they share a knack for working closely with clients to craft something special. In Aryeh's case, it's high-end jewelry with meaningful, personal expressions. Increasingly, his clients are coming to him with their own designs, and his team is rising to the challenge of making those visions a reality. Apologies for the background chatter, but this is as close as some listeners will come to the hallowed halls of the Diamond Dealers Club, midtown Manhattan's maximum-security business center (made famous in films from Marathon Man to Uncut Gems). More About Aryeh:In under five years, Aryeh has built a reputation as a go-to bespoke jeweler in NYC, creating pieces for a bevy of loyal clients and a growing number of high-profile names, including Prince JDC, and Noreaga. In a feature story, REVOLT magazine said that when looking for a partner they could trust in making custom pieces - including for Diddy himself - they knew Aryeh was “the man for the job.” DotCom Magazine included Aryeh & Co. on its Impact Company of The Year List For 2021, for making a difference as a privately owned company in “an incredibly unique” year.
