The blowup/clickable pics are in a 660 x 413 resolution. Is this an error?

Going by the second picture, I don't think these images are supposed to be screen captures; unless the movie has a dynamic aspect ratio.

How does it compare to its original blu-ray release?

Different films.

The 2007 movie version of Hairspray, with Jorn Tromolto John Travolta as a giant fat woman, is based on the 2002 Broadway musical, which in turn is based on an original film written and directed by John Waters.

This is a review of the original Waters film, first released in theaters in 1988. The Blu-ray marks the first time the original has ever been on high def disc.

I'm with you I love anything JW does and this is his masterpiece. He's also a great read. Go get his "Shock Value" like right now! Awesome read for any asipiring filmmaker.
