this week on 100 Films

We begin with a look back at last month on 100 Films in a Year...

After which, 1 new review was published...

Colossal (2016)
you’d be forgiven for thinking this is just another indie rom-com. Anne Hathaway moves back to her Nowheresville hometown, reconnects with childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), and romance is surely in the air. But Colossal has a couple of surprises up its sleeve. Concurrent with Gloria’s return home, a giant monster begins to rampage around Seoul, and she comes to realise these two disconnected events are, in fact, connected. Meanwhile, the relationship storyline has a few twists in store too.

More next Sunday.

Collection Count

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

As intimated last week, there's a whole pile of additions this time. Most of which arrived right at the end of the week, and several required some real working out about what they upgraded or didn't from my existing collection -- hence why this post is on Sunday (not that there's anyone to notice).

So, those additions include:
- the Spider-Man: Legacy 4K box set, containing Spider-Man 1-3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 1&2, which replaces a variety of editions I own on DVD and Blu-ray, but not all my existing copies(!) I may let go of some more in future, if I find this new set duplicates the old one's contents after all.
- the latest release in Doctor Who: The Collection, which as it's Season 23, aka Trial of a Time Lord, is just a one-for-one DVD-to-BD upgrade
- Arrow's Oldboy / the Vengeance Trilogy on Blu-ray, which replaces my standalone Oldboy Special Edition DVD but not my Vengeance Trilogy box set (only because that's a nice box with some swag in it)
- Criterion's release of The Magnificent Ambersons, which replaces a DVD I had bundled with the US BD of Citizen Kane
- and two other titles, with four films between them.


And yet, as you'll see, the net number of new titles is... zero. Eesh.

Number of titles in collection: 2,258 [no change]
Of which DVDs: 1,127 [down 3]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,131 [up 3]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 35 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 5,885 [up 14]
Number of films: 2,620 [up 8]
Number of TV episodes: 8,640 [no change]
Number of short films: 674 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
