Huh... this is really interesting. I *never* change the color settings on my TV for individual shows, but I gave this a try.

Using a cooler image setting as mhofmann suggests does help with the white balance in some shots, I think because it partly compensates for the suppressed blue channel in the video. It still does not fix the problem of too much green in the image. But if you find it looks better than the untouched Blu-ray, why not?

You could also turn up the brightness, since the LUT apparently left the image too dark, as well. The prints I've seen have always had a bright, even appearance.
