IMDb Description: Trapped inside her family’s lakeside retreat, a young woman descends into madness.

I was very impressed with Elizabeth Olsen in Martha Marcy May Marlene last year.  Her performance was awesome.  Another movie she did that caused a lot of buzz at Sundance was Silent House,  a remake of Gustavo Hernandez’s La Casa Muda.  Both movies clam to be done in one continuous shot and that is why everyone finds this movie intriguing.  The film comes out on  March 9th, 2012.

Description via IMDB: A man searches an alternate universe for a long-lost love from his youth.

Upside Down visually looks amazing. There was an HD version out, but it seems YouTube has taken it down.  The story’s premise is similar Romeo and Juliet, but with a Sci-Fi twist.  It stars Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess playing the roles of Adam and Eve.  I’m looking forward to seeing this when it comes out later this year.

As I said on the podcast, this year has been great for movies.  There was possibly only one movie I didn’t really like and if you have already heard last week’s podcast, then you already know what my Top 5 movies are for this year.  However, in case you missed it, I will clue you in to what they were, but you will have to listen to the podcast for more detail.

Before I start, I just want to make it clear that the movies I picked are the ones I thoroughly enjoyed.  You may not agree with my list and that is perfectly fine.  In fact, if you don’t, please feel free to post a comment below with your own top 10 of 2011.

With that said, here is my list under the cut:

In the first half of this Super Happy Fun holiday edition of SSWL, Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky join us and explain what they loved about 2011. Then we get down to brass tacks and shared our own top five movies and games of the year. With our lists out of the way, we went through some very complicated math (fucking addition) and calculated the Some Shit We Like movie and game of the year (Please note that the calculations included only the lists of Rick, Mike, and Bryce).

Major thanks  go out to both Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky for joining us this week. Please be sure to keep up with Ryan at ryanolearyfilms.com and @thebloodymess on Twitter. As for Fran, you can web-stalk him on the official Facebook page for The Massacre Twins as well as @massacre_twins on Twitter.

We have had a great time doing the show this year and an equal amount of enjoyment came out of individually creating and sharing these lists with you. All that being said, please sit back, relax, and enjoy our final show of 2011!
