Why I Hate 3-D (And You Should Too) by Roger Ebert (from Newsweek) As eloquent and persuasive as ever, Ebert argues why the new trend for 3D in films is pointless and actually counter-productive -- or, rather, counter-artistic. Is it only a matter of time before the world/industry agrees with him? I hope so. 3D's a fun gimmick, but no more, despite what some movie-moneymen and bandwagon-jumpers would love us to believe.
Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.
Minimal changes this week, as one two-disc DVD is replaced by its two-disc Blu-ray. Thrilling.
Number of titles in collection: 1,170 [no change] Of which DVDs: 1,090 [down 1] Of which Blu-rays: 80 [up 1]
Number of discs in collection: 2,838 [no change] Number of films in collection: 1,227 [no change] Number of TV episodes in collection: 3,916 [no change]
Statistic of the week:
Number of titles produced in the '90s: 188 (16.1% of the total)
Right back at the start of this series, stat of the week covered titles produced in the '00s, the most-represented decade in my collection. Next biggest is the '90s -- as you can see, there's quite a discrepancy! (And the '00s have only increased in the past 6 months.)
