Mill Creek is releasing the later era Stooges features for a new audience. While the aspect ratios might seem strange to some, SONY is letting Mill Creek shows these releases in the proper aspect ratio. Many are being seen correctly for the first time. Hell, there was a ton of information missing from the old “Three Stooges meet Hercules” discs that I never saw before. The other two features sport the same level of revelations.
These films are Curly Joe releases, so vintage Stooges fans might be annoyed. But, there’s plenty of material here to enjoy. Think of it like Godzilla. Three generations, three styles and a different approach to each era.
The Blu-Ray comes with no special features. However, this is the best A/V Quality that these films have received on home video. The 1080p transfer play dark, but the boast far greater definition. However, the Dolby stereo track is pretty lossy. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to Stooges fans.
Release Date: 04/21/15
