Collection Count

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

Oops — this is rather late, isn't it? But, as you'll see, it's the third substantial week in a row. In fact, if a parcel from the US had turned up when I expected it to, this would actually have beaten two weeks ago to be the biggest of the month. But it didn't, so it doesn't.

Still, there's six new arrivals (The Thing (1982) 4K set includes The Thing (2011) Blu-ray bundled, so it's a net increase of five) — and, wonder of wonders, one of them's a DVD! That'd be season two of Romanzo Criminale, which has been available on Blu-ray in some countries, but I've never found season one on Blu-ray anywhere, and I already own that on DVD, so I'm just completing the set. It also means that every single stat goes up this week, a real rarity.

And all of that is just in time for the monthly running time update — the main reason I took so long putting this post together. Have these busy weeks led to an uncommonly large leap?

Number of titles in collection: 2,663 [up 6]
Of which DVDs: 1,064 [up 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,599 [up 5]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 122 [up 3]

Number of discs in collection: 6,723 [up 18]
Number of films: 3,113 [up 11]
Number of additional cuts: 232 [up 1]
Number of TV episodes: 9,108 [up 10]
Number of short films: 885 [up 11]

Total running time of collection (approx.):
484 days, 21 hours, and 2 minutes.
(Up 2 days, 4 hours, and 23 minutes from last month.)

I'm not sure about all-time, but that's the biggest running time increase since April's.

See you next week, faithful reader.
