Colour looking fine....,
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (Extended Edition) [Blu-ray]   (Blu-ray)
Having been alarmed by a few claims that the Fellowship of the Ring was looking a bit green-tinged I watched the whole thing as soon as the pack arrived. Honestly can't see what all the fuss is about - this film looks even more gorgeous than it did on the the extended DVDs (I resisted the temptation to buy the theatrical blu-rays). I was fearing a sickly green hue over everything (including the snow !) but the whole thing looks fantastic to me.
A fitting - and hopefully definitive - release for a true cinematic classic.

I received my copy today: obviously I haven't watched the whole trilogy (theoretically possible, but work intrudes) but I can confirm that the colour is not green tinged as shown in the youtube videos. I have watched the first 40 minutes of disk 1 of FOTR if you wish to correct me.
I will agree that the colouring is a deeper green for the vegetation, looking at the YT footage (I never bought the cinema BR disks, and can only compare to the extended DVD films that I own): however, as the Shire is ideally a green and fertile land then I have no issue with the increase in colour saturation - I can confirm that this does not transfer existing colours and textures to the rest of the screen as shown in the YT videos.
The lack of picture quality for certain people is possibly due to failures in BR equipment/computer/TV hardware, or possibly not upgrading firmware...

It's not so much green tinged as less yellow tinged i.e the colour is more realistic. Most notable in the scene where Frodo and Gandalf are introduced it seems to have lost that warm yellow tinge...
