Yearly Ketchup: The Freshest Stories of 2013
Few industries enjoy taking really, really, really long extended holiday vacations like Hollywood.

So, this week and next, we're instead going to review 12 of the year's top stories, presented to you in monthly chronology. The year-in-review begins with the "Fresh Developments" which here also serve (mostly) as the "Top Stories" of the year. And there was no confusion about what the year's top story was...

Total Recall: Superman Movies
It took a heck of a lot longer than a speeding bullet to get here, but when Man of Steel arrives in theaters this week, it'll herald the return of a beloved franchise that -- although not without its share of ups and downs -- has been thrilling fans for decades. In fact, this year marks the 62nd anniversary of the first Superman movie, Superman and the Mole Men; sadly, we don't have any reviews on file for that one, but that didn't stop us from taking a look back at our hero's other big-screen adventures. From the moments that made us believe a man could fly to the ones that were critical Kryptonite, this week is all about Krypton's favorite son. Up, up, and away, it's time for Total Recall!
