Some people might escape to balmier regions, like the Caribbean or the Mediterranean, but that would mean swapping your woolly sweater for a bikini after months of eating Christmas cookies and not shaving your legs.

So, 2012. Plenty happened, didn’t it? Now the year’s almost over, let’s wrap up all of the notable pop culture events of the year before we get stuck into that turkey:
This year saw the release of the final installment of the Twilight Saga, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Twilight fans came out in force to see their favourite franchise off in style, taking $227.4 million in its first ten days in...

New Year’s Eve is, without fail, the most consistently disappointing event of the whole year. There's so much optimism and enthusiasm then it's over too quickly. Yet, each time it rolls around I manage to convince myself that perhaps this year will be different. We all do it.

2013 looks like an exciting year for cinema. It's only right we give you a sneak peak, beginning with the return of two British institutions.
About Time and The World's End
Our cinemas have lacked romance in recent years. There's a glimmer of hope for 2013. Richard Curtis is back in May with About Time, a time-travelling romantic comedy starring Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson (Bill Weasley in Harry Potter). Unfortunately ther...

So, that was it. 2012 is practically over, and with it some of the best television we've seen in years. Here's my pick of what you should've been watching in 2012.
Given the hype that surrounded this show, and the fact that it's about the only watchable show on Channel 4 these days, I wouldn't have thought that there was anyone out there who'd missed this. But I still meet people who haven't gotten around to it. ...

In part two of our look back at 2012’s movie offerings, Charlotte Rowland celebrates the indie and world cinema triumphs that warmed hearts and outshone their big budget competition...

Let’s face it, the weather this year has been seriously inclement. And – other than those few weeks during the summer when we were all inexplicably transfixed by sport – there has plenty of opportunity to get some reading done. Here’s a round up of the books that made waves in 2012.

Christmas - the perfect time to pop on your onesie and slip in front of the TV. And there's certainly plenty to feast your eyes on this year.
Ah the soaps at Christmas! How they fill us with festive cheer... Or at least make our families feel normal. Whatever your soap of choice, once you've revelled in the tragedy/ affair/ murder/ arrest/ disastrous wedding/ apocalypse, you'll find plenty of sentimental dramas in which t...
