DVD Backlog 2010-2013: A Look Back

Christmas shopping yesterday afternoon in Nottingham saw £50 spent for the love of my dearest ones and £120 going my way in books, music and blu-rays (bfi and Masters of Cinema: nice).

Something of a tradition, mind: the first DVD I ever bought (Doctor Who: The Robots of Death) was in the run up to Christmas 2000.

So, I bought six blu-rays, which gives me a pile of films to watch in 2015. The last time I stocked up on classic cinema was a few years back when I bought twenty-six films off Amazon for £120. Box sets and a few individual titles. It took over three years to watch the lot, along with a few other films I’d picked up.

This post is in the main a chronology of what I watched (later I’ll come to what I made of them):
