I went to go see Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin's new movie, The Call, and I have to say, it definitely lived up to the hype I'd heard going into it. I'm not a huge fan of scary thrillers as I am the biggest of chickens, but this was fantastic. It was exciting from beginning to end.
Halle Berry did a great job in my opinion considering the fact that she was literally on the phone for the majority of the movie. The presence of shaken but strong female protecting another equally strong and courageous young girl was really effective. These two characters' persistence and determination coupled with the heart-pounding action-packed chase of the plot was really exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat and hiding under my jacket the entire time.
When you go to see this movie, be prepared for some heart-attack inducing surprise moments and a really powerful "AW YEAH!" applause-deserving ending. Seriously, the theater that I was in broke out into applause at the end of the film.
This is also another really strong performance from Abigail Breslin and highlighted the importance of being a strong young woman and taking into your own hand the courage and power that we all have to defend yourself.
Really great movie, all in all a solid 7 out of 10 for me. Definitely go see it!

Some yummy ideas for breakfast and afternoon snacks!! Lots of delicious granola, fruit, and most importantly chocolate! I take the rule that a piece of chocolate a day is good for your heart VERY seriously and I completely endorse some dark chocolate for morning meals.
