Collection Count

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

I was away last week and forgot to get the post setup; but as there was only one new addition, and it was a fairly straight DVD-to-BD upgrade, its changes would've been barely noticeable anyhow.

Though they're even less noticeable after one of this week's additions -- something complicated that turned up last minute, hence this update being late (not that anyone cares). That was the Batman Beyond Blu-ray set, which upgrades the series DVD but, in the UK release, doesn't include the movie on Blu-ray (despite how it was advertised). So, I've kept my uncut US DVD of the movie (for now -- I intend to upgrade to a standalone BD version later), and the six-disc BD series set replaces the nine-disc DVD series set -- which means that, despite adding four new titles this week, overall there's a drop in the number of discs.

Number of titles in collection: 2,266 [up 2]
Of which DVDs: 1,125 [down 2]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,141 [up 4]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 37 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 5,901 [down 1]
Number of films: 2,629 [up 3]
Number of TV episodes: 8,649 [no change]
Number of short films: 674 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.

FilmBath Festival – Opening Night
FilmBath is a local festival giving local people a chance to see previews ahead of general release; films that have already been released but didn’t make it to one of Bath’s cinemas; and smaller, interesting movies that might be difficult to see at all outside a festival. The opening night kicked off the festival with a double bill of the first of those, including an exciting late addition to the lineup — so late it didn’t even make the brochure... I saw both films, and I’ll write full reviews nearer their wide releases, but for the time being here are some thoughts.

More next Sunday.
