TPL DVD additions 2012

I may come to regret this, but I now have the annual habit of collating the English-language DVDs for grownups that the library buys in the previous year. You will of course recall that the impetus was the infamous Pirates of the Caribbean case, where Del Grande and Palacio battled for supremacy in who could provide stupider quotes to the press about TPL collections policy.

Putting this list together isn’t actually as easy as using 2012 as a search field. Nonetheless, I think I located all but maybe one or two titles, which I then painstakingly copy-edited. I’m also giving you a much more rational sort order than the one TPL uses.

Want the 2011 list? I suppose I could make it a separate posting, but it’s part of the Del Grande/Palacio post.
