I actually haven't done that comparison yet, because I don't have the Blu-ray. I was just pointing out that the colors on the laserdisc were different than the colors on the DVD.
I think what worries me more than the color changes are the reported black crush issues. But again, I haven't seen the Blu-ray myself yet.
