Love & Friendship (2016)
[#173 in 100 Films in a Year 2016]

Collection Count

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

Another (very) late update thanks to there being a massive load of additions and changes this time, including both DVD-to-Blu-ray upgrades and Blu-ray-to-Blu-ray upgrades to muddy the numerical waters. In all, eleven new titles were acquired, one of which will be somehow integrated into another,* and three titles were removed.**

On the bright side, all of this kerfuffle ended up arriving just inside this week (hence the delay), rather than tipping over to next as I had expected -- so it should be an all-round quieter time next week.

Number of titles in collection: 1,903 [up 7]
Of which DVDs: 1,196 [down 2]
Of which Blu-rays: 709 [up 9]

Number of discs in collection: 4,897 [up 13]
Number of films in collection: 2,104 [up 10]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 7,467 [no change]
Number of short films in collection: 500 [up 4]

See you next week, faithful reader.

* I bought the Spider-Man Trilogy Blu-ray, which doesn't include the Spider-Man 3 bonus disc; so I also bought the original 2-disc release of Spider-Man 3 to get that disc. Now I have to work out how exactly to sell the duplicate, because... oh, it's quite boring, I'll stop there. Point is: I bought the Spider-Man Trilogy and Spider-Man 3 (2 titles), but because I'll put the latter in the former it goes into my collection as 1 title.

** Talking of Spider-Man, I should really be removing my DVDs of the trilogy now. But the DVD releases of Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 2.1 each have over half-an-hour of special features not duplicated on the Blu-ray; the first film has a few bits & bobs not carried over, as well as being a DVD dear to my heart; and by that point, well, it'd be kinda weird to get rid of Spider-Man 3 (and I have it in an Amazon-exclusive special sleeve to boot). So, for now, they all stay. For now.
