Despite the white label, there were no lip sync issues with my Saving Private Ryan BD, either -- thank God! Better yet, I could not believe the incredible PQ of a film on which principal filming began nearly 13 years ago. By the way, I didn't see unrelievedly white sky in the background. Instead I saw a slug colored sky with patches of pale blue trying to peek out.

I just finished watching the film again, this time on BD. As great as I remembered it being from several earlier viewings, it is better than that. The whole thing was brilliant, including but not limited to the writing, acting, cinematography, and music. Holy smoke, what a great
I, too, had been confused all these years, and had believed, until disabused of the notion today, that the German who killed Fish with the knife was Steamboat Willie.

Steamboat Willie, though, who Upham got even with in the end.
I took away from the film the lesson that war is unspeakably horrific for those, like Captain Miller and his company, at the pointed end of the spear. It is like life, a bitch and then you do die, only more so.
Saving Private Ryan is a truly great motion picture, not just in the war movie genre but unqualifiedly. I give it 10 out of 10 Stars.
