3.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Version, 26 April 2010
This review is from: Saving Private Ryan - 2 Disc Special Edition [Blu-ray] [1998] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Having watched the Blu-ray Version of Saving Private Ryan I was a little disappointed with the picture quality especially when the Allies had taken the beach head where there is terrible colour bleeding issues. Have a look at the flames in each scene. Expected better.

I'm not certain but i think these colour bleeding issues you are talking about, which i too noticed, are on the original film as well and not a fault with the blu ray. Although it would be nice if they'd cleaned them up.

This is intentional on the film-maker's part, and is not a fault with the blu ray, dvd or original cinema release.

Expected better LOL, this disc is reference quality, all of spielberg's films are grainy as it's his prefered vision. Minority Report is the same on blu and that is reference quality also.

As with other users saying it's no better than the dvd, well you must be blind and deaf.

Yes. This is an intentional effect by the film makers but i agree it looks odd.

This style was a deliberate attempt by Spielberg to recreate the effects evident in the photos shot by Robert Capa during the landings on Omaha Beach. Have a look at some of Capa's work and you'll see that Spielberg has captured the essence of the originals perfectly (blurring, ghosting, haloing etc.). It may not be to your liking, but it is an intentional effect and not a fault with the blu-ray transfer.

The graininess was definitely intentional, but the problems with the flames was not. I do not remember noticing them in the theatrical release (which I saw more than once) and it is something that is, frankly, hard to miss. The DVDs had the same problem with respect to the flames when they first came out and I am disappointed that after so many years they still haven't addressed this issue. I wonder if the masters were corrupted.

I'm afraid in this case you are not correct regarding the flames. The flames were intentionally filmed this way by mis-timing the camera shutter. This has the effect of streaking any "hot" light source and was done as a homage to Full Metal Jacket, whose cinematographer employed the same concept for that film. It was in the theatrical prints, it's reflected accurately in these releases. It can't be "addressed" as there's no problem to address.
