I don’t know if Id call it a dark blue tint over the entire movie. Certain scenes are a lot bluer that in other releases but other scenes, well lit ones, are very warm with well saturated skin tones. Its a much more selective dynamic grade than simply blanketing the whole thing in one color (FOTR style).
Here are some screenshots
You can see that there is a lot of blue in these scenes but only when appropriate, other scenes are perfectly neutral or warmer. This matches up with my recollection of the film in cinemas. Dark and moody.
These 4:3 clips below probably come from the first Home media release, struck for both the VHS and the DVD release Dec 8 1998
Remember that home media transfers from this era are taken from low contrast interpositives rather than release prints. What you see here is not exactly a representative of the theatrical grade.
