Oscar Weekend: HuffPost Movie Mashups

Mashups are hot. Music mashups, video mashups, web mashups.

So, with Oscar Weekend upon us, we thought we'd slice-and-dice some of the past year's most popular movie concepts. Here then are HuffPost's Favorite Movie Mashups of 2005 (props to HuffPost mashup meister Tom Spath).
