Few industries enjoy taking really, really, really long extended holiday vacations like Hollywood. So when we get to this time of the year, there's really not much in the realm of "movie development news" to discuss, especially not in a weekly column which normally includes 10 different stories. So, this week and next, we're instead going to review 12 of the year's best stories, presented to you in monthly chronology. These twelve stories include six remakes (like Evil Dead, Ninja Turtles, and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?), three sequels (Alice in Wonderland 2, Casablanca 2, Scary Movie 5), two toy adaptations (Candy Land and Tonka), and one lame spoof (The Starving Games).
