It still puzzles me that the movies most suited for a high-definition release seem to take the longest to get one. The first Twilight movie, which even on the big screen looked like it was shot for about $27.50 including effects budget, came to Blu-ray in May of 2009, a scant six months after its theatrical release. But Saving Private Ryan, which won a boxful of Oscars, was listed as one of the AFI's 100 Greatest American Movies, and features a terrifyingly effective recreation of the brutal landing on Omaha Beach, is just finally getting a Blu-ray release May 4th as part of Paramount Home Entertainment's "Sapphire Series."
Still, better late than never, right? The main reason to pick it up will be the 1080p picture and the 5.1 DTS-HD sound, but you'll also get a dozen extra features. Sadly, other than the trailers it doesn't look like any of the featurettes are in HD. Come on, people, that's the sort of nonsense Captain Miller died on that bridge to prevent! If you want my money, you'd better earn it, Paramount. Earn it!
