Not getting the pics mixed up, :P
Going to get my PS3 now. The connection will only be S-Video going into a analog tv tuner card so the sharpness, etc. won't be up to par as with my tele but you'll get the idea.
I have a Samsung LN46A650.
EDIT: The image quality is complete crap due to the reasons stated above, but you can see that it highly resembles the AUS version. If I can find a way to get a direct capture from off the Samsung I will do so.
Okay... um... what the hell? You're absolutely right - the colour and contrast levels in that capture are extremely
close to the ones in my capture from the Australian disc, and are about a million miles away from my own US disc. Based on this evidence, I'd say you're absolutely right: somehow, you appear to have a US disc with a completely different colour grade from my own (and indeed many other people's, from the sounds of it). Would it be possible for you to do a capture of one of the red-tinted shots (e.g. my Examples 12 and 14)?
I should point out that you definitely don't have the Australian disc, since the total running time of 01:39:50 on your display definitely corresponds to the US disc rather than the Australian one (which is around a half-minute shorter thanks to the absence of the Lions Gate logo).
So, seriously, what's going on here? Is there then a THIRD version of the US release, this one with the UK DVD/Australian BD colour palette? Normally I'd say this was unlikely in the extreme, but then we do already have two confirmed versions of the disc masquerading with the same packaging and UPC... If this is indeed the case, I apologise for doubting you, but I hope you do understand how hard this was to believe from my POV without seeing the evidence for myself.
EDIT: Just for reference, my own captures again:
