this week on 100 Films

This week began with a new month, and so it was time for 100 Films in a Year to look back at the previous one...

Plus, there were 2 new reviews, too...

The 100-Week Roundup XXVI
A pair of awards-worthy short animations — the first won an Oscar, the second was nominated for one. I was going to include more films in this week’s roundup (effectively bundle two weeks into one), but it felt like a disservice to this pair. They are...

- Paperman
- Waltz with Bashir

More next Sunday.

Collection Count

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

Having pushed the running time update back a week purely because I hadn't had time to update it, this week I got a whole pile of new titles. To be exact, there were 10 additions, though various upgrades keep the net change at +4. And the number of discs actually goes down, thanks to The World at War Blu-ray being an 8-disc upgrade to a 26-disc-version I owned on DVD. That wasn't even the most complicated-to-factor title, which only turned up yesterday morning. So this update is late, but it's complete!

Number of titles in collection: 2,553 [up 4]
Of which DVDs: 1,075 [down 6]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,478 [up 10]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 96 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,524 [down 6]
Number of films: 2,963 [up 7]
Number of additional cuts: 210 [up 1]
Number of TV episodes: 9,052 [up 4]
Number of short films: 843 [no change]

Total running time of collection (approx.):
472 days, 16 hours, and 8 minutes.
(Up 4 days, 8 hours, and 11 minutes from last month.)

That's the biggest monthly increase since June 2019... although it does have five weeks in it, so that's kinda cheating, I guess.

See you next week, faithful reader.
