3x05 A Two-Headed Beast
+ the commentary by actors W. Earl Brown, Sean Bridgers, and Jim Beaver, which is one of the better ones, insightful but also chatty and entertaining.


A Good Year (2006)
[#54 in 100 Films in a Year 2019]

The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
[3rd watch]
Rewatchathon 2019 #14. Continuing the trilogy after an unintentional month-long pause. I don't intend to wait so long until I rewatch the third one... but you never know.

Collection Count

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

A whopping 11 new titles this month! How come? Well, Zoom had an excellent 3D Blu-ray clearance sale on, which I used to pick up the last three Resident Evil movies dirt cheap; and, alongside that, I decided to complete my set and upgrade the first three to Blu-ray (I've had them on DVD since, well, DVD was a thing). I also got one other title in that 3D sale (it was two-for-X job).

The other four also come courtesy of Zoom, this time their Criterion gift card. I missed out on the last 2-for-£25 Criterion sale because one title I really wanted wasn't in it, after which I forgot about the sale and missed it. But I noticed that title was now included in those available with Zoom's 4-for-£50 gift card, so I splashed out. Filling the other three slots was easy -- I could've done it thrice over.

So, that's how we get to a big pile of newness this week -- all sales titles. Next week: some new releases!
