this week on 100 Films

There were 7 brand-new reviews on 100 Films in a Year this week, with 4 of them bundled into a...

Comedy Review Roundup
Let’s have a laugh (or, perhaps, not) with… Police Academy, Black Dynamite, Four Lions, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Life (2017)
Playing like a cross between Gravity (a near-future thriller where space technology is almost identical to our present capabilities) and Alien (a violent alien lifeform attacks the crew of a space vessel), Life clearly aspires to be little more than a straight-up sci-fi/horror thrill ride, and on that score it’s a pretty effective piece of entertainment.

Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends (2014)
As is a common fate among so many trilogy-closers, I thought Rurouni Kenshin 3 was sadly the series’ weak link. That said, it’s not a bad action movie — if you’re only in it for the swordplay then it satisfies with bells on; it’s the storyline around that is disappointing.

Twin Peaks: The Return (2017)
Film Twitter has been getting itself in a bit of a tizzy over the past couple of days about David Lynch’s return to TV [after] respected British film magazine Sight & Sound went and named Twin Peaks: The Return as the second best film of 2017... Personally, I’m not really sure where I come down on the issue. I mean, it’s definitely a TV series, isn’t it? But it’s also virtually an 18-hour movie, isn’t it? Can it be both?

More next Sunday.

Collection Count

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

As promised last week, there's a whole load of stuff here -- eight additions, to be exact, with just one being a DVD-to-BD upgrade. That all makes its presence felt in the monthly running time update, too.

Number of titles in collection: 2,061 [up 7]
Of which DVDs: 1,167 [down 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 894 [up 8]

Number of discs in collection: 5,290 [up 18]
Number of films: 2,297 [up 9]
Number of TV episodes: 7,998 [up 18]
Number of short films: 595 [up 1]

Total running time of collection (approx.):
392 days, 5 hours, and 22 minutes.
(Up 2 days, 9 hours, and 24 minutes from last month.)

That's the biggest running time increase since there were silly numbers in July.

See you next week, faithful reader.
