    this sounds suspiciously like a contrast problem with the TV rather than something on the disc.

    If its happening during the wedding chapel sequence is the green blur in an area of strong white?
    I've got a friend that has a 28" ferguson widescreen set and whenever there's a high contrast image with a very strong white in one area (upper quarter, left hand edge of his screen) the contrast runs too hot and makes the gauze behind the glass glow green just in that area. You can test for this (you won't do any lasting damage or anything) by pausing at the point when you notice it and cranking up the contrast - the green will get brighter as the contrast runs hotter as its increased, then change channel to something like an AV channel with no signal (plain black screen) and you'll see the "blur" is still there until the gauze cools down again, or alternatively a normal TV channel, and you'll see the blur still there changing the colour of whatever's on the screen. He had his TV nearly a year before he noticed it, and even then it was only because he'd started watching snowboarding dvd magazines that have a lot of white onscreen.
    He got an engineer out to take a look, who said there's often mods they can fit to various models to reduce how hot the contrast runs (this is apparently a very common problem with a lot of different TVs), but not one for his particular TV so they replaced it. The replacement did the same, not as bad, but he got round it by setting his contrast a little lower than he used to.

    You should definitely check for it, might get a new TV set out of it if its still under guarantee, that or there's maybe a mod for your set if this is the problem rather than a faulty disc.

    if it is that, a local freelance engineer may well be able to sort you out with a mod, if one's available, for not too much money. I don't think they're expensive to fit.

    good luck anyway :)
