This week's theme for Your Movie Bucket List is a twist on what we did last week. Last week I told you about some classic movies that had won Oscars of various sorts. This week I'm going to map some of 2015's Oscar winning films to some similar great classic movies. I'm also adding Rotten Tomatoes scores as a more neutral recommendation than just listening to little ol' me. Oh, and I did cheat the Oscar theme by adding the last film -- but since it's gotten a lot of buzz I decided to add it anyway.
