Okay, here's a very easy way to see the tint on the disc if your disc is bad. Everyone says "even the end credits have the tint" but that is not completely true. The scrolling end credits are NOT tinted or underexposed.
So play the very end. When the credits come on such as "Peter Jackson" where they fade in/out, this will be tinted green and underexposed. However, when the scrolling credits come on the screen, they will no longer be green tinted or underexposed. Then, later, when the fan credits come on, those are tinted again. I think (from memory) you can see both the white normal credits and the green tinted fan credits on the screen at the same time, so you can see if your copy is tinted.
However, as others have pointed out, if you're using the out of the box settings on your TV, its likely that your settings are such that it removes all detail and colors that are in the lightest parts of the image (known as 'white crush') - thus you might not be able to see it on peak whites. You'd need to get a calibration disc (such as the free downloadable AVS HD 709) and set your whites to 235 first.
But if you prefer the brighter image in exchange for losing detail in the light areas, then by all means leave it the way it is and enjoy your movies how you like them.
