Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

Collection Count

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

This week's updates include a couple of new titles — biggest among them, Indicator's Fu Manchu box set — but (as mooted last week) I've removed the set of eight classic Universal monster movies, so a couple of stats still go down. And then, when tallying up, I discovered I'd forgotten something I bought earlier in the month was actually a DVD-to-BD upgrade, so even more stats drop or stay the same!

Regarding the Indicator set, it contains alternative presentations of several of the films, but I've only counted one as a true alternate cut. That one has a whole different prologue, whereas the others are just alternate title sequences, which I personally consider to be be a curio rather than a genuine additional cut.

Number of titles in collection: 2,456 [no change]
Of which DVDs: 1,086 [down 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,370 [up 1]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 80 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,338 [down 3]
Number of films: 2,810 [down 2]
Number of additional cuts: 188 [up 1]
Number of TV episodes: 8,975 [no change]
Number of short films: 771 [up 5]

Also this week, it's time for the monthly running time update. With several box sets rocking up this month (including that huge Universal one last week), does that mean an uncommonly large jump here?

Total running time of collection (approx.):
460 days, 9 hours, and 45 minutes.
(Up 2 days, 19 hours, and 45 minutes from last month.)

Well, I don't actually know what the average monthly increase is. This one doesn't challenge several of the ultra-big jumps I've had this year, but it's not paltry either.

Anyway, see you next week, faithful reader.
