Year of Woody ends well with army flick

Big screen blunders: disappointing films of 2009

No best-of-the-year film list would be complete without a glimpse at the films that made audience-goers cringe in 2009. From harebrained comedies to ambitious prestige pieces that just fell short of the mark, the following is a list of films that failed to scintillate at the Cineplex.

Artists go down to the Paradise City

Shayna Murphy gives Halloween II a 2/5 stars.

Aggressive, offensive and always in poor taste, few modern filmmakers have the chutzpah to venture over such tough terrain.
