Saving Private Ryan

This 1998 film won Steven Spielberg five Oscars and continues to be a hot seller on DVD. It’s a stark and horrific look at war but one that should be required viewing for history classes around the nation. The use of film grain, handheld cameras and desaturated imagery was perfected in this movie and continues to be copied today.

Scene Stealer – No surprises here, the first 24 minutes could potentially be the greatest slice of film available when released on Blu-ray. It has everything you’d need to show your system off. The surround effects are nonstop, and your sub will need a vacation when it’s done. The picture is purposefully monotone, lots of grays and greens, but the amount of detail in the close-ups of the soldiers should really come to life. Hopefully the film grain will be retained and not lost with any of the image sharpening that has plagued some recent releases.
