Recap: Every Feature We Ran In 2012

Recap: Every Feature We Ran In 2012

With Christmas Day falling mid-week, you can expect things to be pretty quiet round these parts in the next few days; there’s not going to be much major movie news (though we will check in if and when anything does come up), plus there’s not all that much in the way of new openings.

But we appreciate that you might be after some reading material over the coming days, and so with that in mind, like we did last year, we’ve put together a list of more or less every feature we ran in the last eleven months. There should be something for every taste somewhere below, so keep this bookmarked, and click away; there’s getting on a million words worth of content found below.
