Sparkle, directed by Salim Akil, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Wild by Cheryl Strayed was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Go Public: A Documentary Film Project. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Curiosity – What's Inside the Cube? or DoDonPachi SaiDaiOuJou.
