I've read numerous times that sharpness should always be set to zero, however, when I watch movies that reviewers say have lots of film grain (like Saving Private Ryan and The Seventh Seal) I can't see the grain when the sharpness is set to zero (and, with the exception of a few daytime close-up shots, everything looks noticably blurry). Once I set the sharpness to 100 I can finally see the film grain and everything looks a LOT clearer. The thing is, I LOVE film grain and I find it odd that I can't see it when my sharpness is set to the apparently universally accepted setting of zero - what are your thoughts on this? Shouldn't I be able to see film grain with sharpness set to zero (as per every calibration article I've ever read)? FYI, my TV's default settings has sharpness set to 75/100.
