this week on 100 Films

Just 1 new post on 100 Films in a Year this week...

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)
it moves like the clappers and is committed to being almost relentlessly entertaining. Perhaps it’s a little hardcore for younger fans (and even that aspect has lessened with age, with the chest-ripping special effects looking a little ropey nowadays), but otherwise, what’s there to complain about?

Collection Count

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

This week, I finally got round to upgrading Torchwood series one and two from DVD to Blu-ray. Not sure why — bit of a whim. So two more DVDs go, two more Blu-rays are gained, and overall two discs are lost — although that last one is masked because I also acquired two films on Blu-ray.

Number of titles in collection: 2,605 [up 2]
Of which DVDs: 1,071 [down 2]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,534 [up 4]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 102 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,600 [no change]
Number of films: 3,032 [up 2]
Number of additional cuts: 221 [no change]
Number of TV episodes: 9,075 [no change]
Number of short films: 867 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
