The Ghost Writer (2010)
Normally I go with UK titles for films, and this was originally released here as The Ghost, but nowadays it's on Netflix (where I watched it) as The Ghost Writer, so...

Collection Count

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

I would call this week a quieter one, but that's only in the context of recent times. It still boasts six new additions, with ten films, an additional cut, and 24 episodes of TV between them.

Among them, I finally picked up the first Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection 4K set. It contains just four of his films, versus the 16-film BD set I also own them in. No replacement in my collection there, then! Indeed, it'll be some time before I can lose the BD set — if ever. Y'see, this volume is almost two years old, and they've only recently released a second with five more films. That leaves seven to go, two of which are actually with different rights holders, so who knows if they'll all ever see the light of day on 4K? Maybe they will, but I'll certainly be keeping the BD set for the forseeable future.

One BD set I won't be keeping for too much longer is the Peter Cushing Dalek films. The 4K edition of Dr. Who and the Daleks turned up this morning, and when the matching set for Daleks' Invasion Earth turns up (in a month's time) then I'll remove the old BD from these stats.

Of which DVDs: 1,055 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,808 [up 6]
