Answer the Call

Answer the Call
By Paula Tudor
The new Ghostbusters movie has generated a lot of buzz. It seems people have been talking about it since before it was even made. That is why I am surprised more people do not seem to be excited about it. I have to admit I went back and forth about whether I wanted to see this film or not. I am always wary of remakes, particularly when it pertains to movies that have become classics. As a child of the 80s I remember the original Ghostbusters movies vividly and fondly. My brother had all of the toys associated with the film; and I am pretty sure I had the theme song on some of my favorite mix tapes. So if, like me, you were a fan of the original Ghostbusters and have been hesitant to give this new Ghostbusters a chance, hesitate no more.
The 2016 version of Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Kristen Wiig. Yes, in case you have not heard this is an all-female ghost busting team; but before you commence with the boos (p…

Central Intelligence: A Rock Solid Comedy with Hart!

If you are looking for a fun summer movie, look no further than Central Intelligence, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart. Opening the same weekend as Finding Dory, I suspect this film may have been overlooked by some, especially since it is not suitable for young kids. However, I have no doubt that teens and adults will love this movie because it is the perfect summer escape.
Central Intelligence is one of those movies that almost slipped under my radar. I only became aware of it when I saw the trailer on television. It would seem that the movies creating the most buzz this summer are, of course, Finding Dory, and the upcoming release of the new, all-female Ghostbusters, opening in July. Since I was not exactly clamoring to see Finding Dory, I was glad that Central Intelligence came along because lately there have not been many movies worth paying to watch.
Central Intelligence is an action-packed comedy; and I do not use the term ‘action-packed’ loosely. A lot happe…

NEW WEBSERIES ALERT: Personal Space

There is an exciting new web series on the horizon called Personal Space! It is a sic-fi dramedy set in - you guessed it - space! This is an ambitious and ground breaking project which features an all star cast with impressive credits under their belt, including Battlestar Galactica, Sons of Anarchy, and the web series Emma Approved.




In Personal Space, the therapy sessions of astronauts are broadcast as reality television without their consent or knowledge. I imagine it to be a little like The Truman Show, except in space.



Personal Space will also include a character who is disabled. While not a new concept, this character will learn to live with his disability rather than experience a miraculous recovery down the road. 







Women will also be prominent in this web series, from the writing team to the cast, which is about 50% female.







I am so honored to have been given the chance to help spread the word about this project and I hope that if it gets made everyone will tune in. That's right!…
