People keep missing my point, so this time with more carriage returns.
I too think the green tint debate is pointless, and have never debated THAT issue. So please put down your dead horse pictures.
Because, if we are going to talk about color at all, there are much more distracting issues with the new master, which 99% of the posts in this thread do not mention or confuse it with the green tint issue.
Am I still able to enjoy the BD overall? Hell yes, it is still impressive! There are many modern movies with a much more severe teal push.
I am sure that Jackson did the best he could in the time available, but if you would permit me to hazard a guess I would say they simply ran out of time. Green or not, the new color timings are by no means consistent, and at one point near the end of the movie the distracting changes suddenly stop MID SCENE and it appears stable through to the end.
Some will cry artistic intent, but it isn't helping the whole fiasco, and dwarfs the green tint issue IMO.Edited by AVfile - 1/22/13 at 7:45pm
