Theres been a lot of talk about how 'The Grinch' was filmed in a very 'soft' style, which has meant that the DVD transfer looks really washed out with really pale-greyish blacks. It reminded me of my disappointment when I popped in the 'Men In Black' DVD to discover a really washed out, pale transfer with really, really weak blacks. For me, color strength and balance is the most important aspect of a transfer, aside from digital artifacts of course. Edge enhancement is a dream compared with a pale grey DVD image! Personnally, I thought 'The Grinch's' tranfer was quite nice - fit the material!
