Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan” comes out on Blu-Ray on Tuesday. It’s not on my must-buy-immediately list. While technically brilliant and thematically important the film did not hit me at an emotional level. Of Spielberg’s trio of ’90s, serious, historical dramas my preference is for “Schindler’s List,” one of the most powerful, emotionally-devastating films ever made. Though, I should really give both “Ryan” and “Amistad” second looks.

Since “Ryan” Spielberg has yet to make a “great” film with one debatable exception: 2002’s “Minority Report,” a recent Blu Ray I’d be inclined to pick up before Tuesday’s release.
