Mike ‘The Movie Guy’ Movie Review: #EmelieMovie

Last night I had the opportunity to watch a screener for the upcoming thriller, horror movie…EMELIE. It actually hits select theaters and On Demand today.

I didn’t watch the trailer before receiving the screener…I didn’t read what the movie was about…I simply went off the movie poster.


An ‘interesting’ girl, three scared kids and the words, “THE BABYSITTER IS HERE.”

EMELIE is about (without giving away too much) a family. Mom and dad hire a babysitter to watch their kids as they go out to celebrate their anniversary. Once the babysitter arrives – she becomes cozy with the kids and then BAMMMM!!! It gets scary, uncomfortable, nail biting – well…you get the picture.

What did I like about EMELIE?

🙂  Freaking EVERYTHING!! This is a movie I’ll tell my friends and strangers about. (lol) It’s a MUST-SEE movie people. Right off the bat – crap goes down in the first minute and half. YES. I paused the movie. I was like, “WTF?! What the hell? Didn’t anyone see what just happened?!” But that’s not even the messed up part – what this babysitter does. Insane. I’m just going to keep it like that – you just have to watch this movie.

I loved the cast. Sarah Bolger (never noticed her till now) was awesome. She plays the babysitter. It was how she draws you in. In the beginning I was like, “Heyyy she’s hot. Why weren’t my babysitter’s more like her.” then I was like, “WTF?!” then I was like, “Awww ok. I see now” then I was like, “WTF?!?!?” (lol) Joshua Rush, Carly Adams and Thomas Bair – they play the kids (Jacob, Sally and Christopher) in the movie. Outstanding!! I hope their parents increased their allowances. (lol) They were great in this movie.


The writing and directing – Dope as hell!! From the beginning to the very end. In my world – this movie’s a very well rounded package of HOLY CRAP BALLS! Loved the music in the film – especially the Blondie cover “One Way Or Another” by Until The Ribbon Breaks. I must have listened to that song at the end credits like 10 times. I actually have it pulled up on YouTube right now. (lol)

What did I not like about EMELIE?

😦 Absolutely nothing…like I said before. I loved everything about this movie.

I give EMELIE…5 out of 5 popcorns! It’s one serious roller coaster of emotions – I found myself glued to the screen – I haven’t been like that in a long time – – plus it didn’t help that I’m a new dad either. I told the wifey this morning…”I’m never hiring a babysitter.” Thanks a lot Director Michael Thelin. (lol)

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot -Makeup Tutorial


As you may know, makeup is a fun way to transform you entirely. It can make you feel like a different person, make you feel more confident and it can just simply make you happier. And what’s wrong with using a little makeup if it makes you feel better?

In Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Tina Fey is an unhappy journalist sent to Afghanistan to cover the war. Her life a mess, she’s in a rut and needs change. While in Afghanistan, Margot Robbie’s character implies that Tina Fey may be a 7 in the states, but in Afghanistan she’s a 10! A hot scale should never determine how you feel about yourself and that’s exactly what she learns throughout her journey. She does a complete 180, changes her life around, switches up her outlook on life, assimilates to a whole new world and learns to love herself exactly how she is.

To celebrate the magnificence of all women, beauty vlogger, Laura Sanchez has created a quick and fun way to add a little makeup to your life! Make sure to grab your friends and head to theaters Friday, March 4.
