Sport Relief 2010
[1st half + BBC Two segment]
I recorded it so I could fastforward the dull bits (by which I mean rubbish singers, etc, not the appeal films), but was surprised to find I barely skipped anything. I expect it'll pay dividends come the later hours though -- these charity telethons always wind up repeating the best sketches by midnight.
[Watch the first half and BBC Two half-hour (again) on iPlayer.]


Saw V (2008)
[#34 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]
Regular readers may remember that the first four films in the series were 2009's numbers 59, 60, 61 and 62.

Titanic (1997)
[#35 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]
Having avoided this box office behemoth for 12 years, it seems appropriate to finally see it now it's been toppled from its highest-grossing perch. Plus, it was on in HD.


The Secret of Monkey Island: The Flash Movie
The whole plot of The Secret of Monkey Island, re-told at speed by a German bloke (in English) with cartoony illustrations. Kinda fun.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

Just one new Blu-ray this week, despite the Saturday delay in posting. It's the rather-good Seraphim Falls, which I watched earlier this week. It should look rather lovely on BD and it was going dirt cheap (£4.99! for a Blu-ray!) at several retailers.

Number of titles in collection: 1,154 [up 1]
Of which DVDs: 1,079 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 75 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 2,809 [up 1]
Number of films in collection: 1,219 [up 1]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 3,874 [no change]

Statistic of the week:

Number of titles rated 15:
(34% of the total)

Following in the footsteps of titles rated U and titles rated 18, those rated 15 are the largest group in my collection -- almost double the next closest!

What's next closest? That's for another time...

See you next week, faithful reader.
