It is not a myth [In reply to] Can't Post

This is a baffling response. Plenty of people, myself included, have seen the tint on far above "substandard" sets, and on multiple sets, and the tint is, quite simply, there. You need only look at the skies, and in particular, whites (such as white clouds, or Saruman's robes), to realize it.

Whether or not it was deliberate is the question.

I certainly won't say it's a myth. [In reply to] Can't Post

Obviously people have noticed something. As for myself, though, I watched the FotR EE on blu-ray only after hearing about this dreaded green tint problem. I was very worried as I watched the movie play across the big screen. Fortunately, I haven't noticed any green tint at all. I was really looking for it, worrying about it, and I can't tell a bit of difference. Now I haven't tried to watch them side-by-side with another version, but I'm very happy with the quality of the blu-rays. I bought the trilogy set, not the individual movies for anyone who is curious.

So, you don't even think [In reply to] Can't Post

It's a lot darker than it used to be? That's my issue, and that darkness is oppressive and just wrong in some scenes.

Fellowship of the.....Green? [In reply to] Can't Post

I see the tint in a handful of scenes, but for the most part, its minimal. The shift mostly causes a difference in contrast, not a drastic color change. The "worst offender" is probably the establishing shot of the snowy mountain pass.

Another way to tell which scenes are affected is to focus on Frodo's eyes. Most of the time they're blue, but in a few shots, they're a vibrant green (like when he decides to leave the Fellowship behind).
