The 4th Annual CriminyPete Awards 2002
(Not counting any films I haven't seen and reviewed yet - they may be adjusted as I see them... or even adjusted after I think on them a bit longer.)

The CriminyPete Awards are determined entirely on the basis of CriminyPete's year-end mullings and musings. Reader opinions are always welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed, but never really factored into the awards.

All of the CriminyPete Awards have been awarded in an earlier ceremony held at an alternate location.
