Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)

+ the audio commentary by co-writer Mark Rosenthal. I don’t very often listen to audio commentaries, so why I did this one, of all films, I don’t really know. But here we are. It was moderately interesting.

Collection Count

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

There should have been loads turning up this week -- at least 13 additions, maybe even 15 or 16, which would've been record-setting (see other recent updates for more on that). The reason being that, after a couple of quiet weeks, I got suckered by an Easter sale; and there were some new releases due too.

But none that has turned up yet. Not a sausage. It's a mix of both slow dispatch and slow delivery times. Some of it is due to the current situation, but, honestly, the big load of sale items are from somewhere that's always tardy at dispatch during their sales. And as for the new releases, at least one seems to have gone AWOL, if it was even dispatched at all. So nothing's arrived this week, but I have spent an awful lot of time checking on statuses or trying to chase things...

Number of titles in collection: 2,340 [no change]
Of which DVDs: 1,109 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,231 [no change]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 47 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,071 [no change]
Number of films: 2,741 [no change]
Number of TV episodes: 8,807 [no change]
Number of short films: 707 [no change]

Of course, this does mean next week might be a banner one, if everything does finally turn up en masse. See you then, faithful reader.
