You will notice all the James Bond films (excluding Casino Royale (2006), which I already own, and Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again, which don't count) and a large number of Hitchcock films. I received the James Bond Ultimate Collection and two Hitchcock collections which account for the atrociously large title count this year.

I also received several other lovelies, including a Linux-based wireless router, new 7.1 speakers and sound card for my desktop, a 250GB portable hard drive, and the PC game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I also received a positively scrumptious black wool peacoat.
