Updated reviews to include a detailed one from DVD Talk - check out the pic of Micro Phonies in the review.
Also of note from the review:
"In the opening short, They Stooge to Conga, there's a few frames missing from a bit where Moe hits Curly in the mouth with a hammer. Dizzy Detectives looked a little rough in spots, as far as excessive grain (all the shorts, to one degree or another, have noticeable grain). And very curiously, Back From the Front and Higher Than a Kite have what I can only assume are compression issues where some of the blacks go green (in Higher just in one brief shot, but in Back for several long ones onboard the ship). This didn't occur with any of the other shorts, which look for the most part, quite good, with super-sharp pictures, good gray scales, and an agreeably bright image."
He's probably paying more attention to detail than I am. I didn't notice some of those things, such as the compression issues, but I'll go with him.
However, I do agree that DIZZY looked worse than anticipated - but by no means "bad" and still acceptable. But, from the handful or so that I've watched, things do look good. Micro Phonies looks better than ever. Three Little Twirps looked great - that stood out.
Will be interesting to see some comparison shots.
