Titanic 3D seemed orange in places as well, but I got used to it and thought the 3D was remarkable. But it sounds like both the 3D and the color are bad here. Sounds like it's the process they used rather than artistic intent. All this scuttlebutt, however, makes one wonder if it in some way contributed to Scott's personal problems and recent demise.
Edit: I did read several reviews including this from: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Top-Gun-3D-Blu-ray/60004/#Review
and they don't appear to reference the color issue, but rather find the bluray version better than the 2D and more film-like. So that's a head scratcher. Also, noted in one review was that the original movie was 4:3 and the widescreen version does take away some enjoyment. I remember seeing this back in the day and was both blown away by the realsm, but also the unreality of what these pilots really were about--having been an aircraft ground controller in Vietnam. There was no margin for error for these guys and everything was strictly by the book--even the dog fights. They fought with robotic precision, not seat-of-pants heroics, and a lot of their decisions were sanctioned by strict orders and us ground control guys--ahh, I digress...Edited by threed123 - 2/14/13 at 10:50am
