Don't Look Up (2021)
The first film I've watched this year that doesn't qualify towards my All-New 100 Films in a Year Challenge. I feel like that should be a negative, but it's almost exciting. Like, this was part of the point of the new challenge — that not everything counts — and this is the first time that's swung into action.

Collection Count

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

Look, I'm not trying to keep having weeks that push close to all-time-record status, it just keeps happening! I really need to rein myself in... But, yes, another 13 new titles this week, one an upgrade, makes a total increase of 12 two weeks in a row.

Speaking of last week, I mentioned then that if all the 4Ks in the post had actually arrived, it would've been a record-breaker. Well, the remainder turned up this week (of course). It's no record-breaker, but it does see my 4K total stop just one shy of 150 titles — I thought it was going to be 150, but then I remembered one was an upgrade. How many (or, rather, few) of those 149 have I actually watched? I dread to think...

Number of titles in collection: 2,779 [up 12]
Of which DVDs: 1,055 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,724 [up 12]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 149 [up 2]

Number of discs in collection: 6,964 [up 31]
Number of films: 3,309 [up 26]
Number of additional cuts: 252 [up 4]
Number of TV episodes: 9,237 [no change]
Number of short films: 949 [up 12]

In case you missed it, those 12 titles brought a total of 26 films and 4 alternate cuts. Crikey. I really ought to watch more of my Blu-rays...

See you next week, faithful reader.
