Scouting for Toys
1x07 Antique Dolls
[Watch the series (again) on UKTV Play.]


Encanto (2021)
[2nd watch]
[#62 in The All-New 100 Films in a Year Challenge 2022]
I think this is going to count as #62. What gives me pause is that it was also #28, but that was a different viewing. My rules say a film can't count multiple times, but what I really mean is I can't count it multiple times from a single viewing — a rewatch (counted in the Rewatch category) is different, right? That's my current thinking, anyway.

The Infernal Cauldron (1903)

The One-Man Band (1900)

Watched a couple of Georges Méliès shorts on YouTube. I only did it to tick them off a list on Letterboxd, really (and, in the case of the second, to check if I'd seen it before. I don't think I had; not in full, anyway), but they're incredible pieces of work — still entertaining, 120 years after they were created.

Collection Count

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

Just two packages of Blu-rays turned up this week, but ooh, there's all sorts going on across them. For one thing, one contained four titles and the other five — so that's two weeks' worth at the average rate I mentioned last time. However, three of the latter were Blu-ray upgrades of titles I owned on DVD, and one of the former was a BD-to-BD upgrade, so the net total is only five additions.

Various other stats went up and down as titles were subtracted and added, though the end result of it all looks calm: five new titles, with five films, on five discs.

Number of titles in collection: 2,934 [up 5]
Of which DVDs: 1,043 [down 3]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,891 [up 8]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 203 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 7,263 [up 5]
Number of films: 3,512 [up 5]
Number of additional cuts: 284 [no change]
Number of TV episodes: 9,422 [no change]
Number of short films: 1,007 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
