I'm not a videophile - so bare with me here ...

The THX mode - is considered near perfection - correct ?
Okay - is a " matte" screen look the picture a video fanatic is looking for ?
Flat ? And as little color enhancement as possible ?

Help me understand please thanx .

Also what is pull down and false contouring ?

I would not consider THX mode "near perfection", but is very good, and must meet THX standards. Only a calibrated TV (many upper end TVs offer calibration features) would give you near perfection.

Matte screens are not found typically on videophile TVs, because they wash out the picture. Blacks turn to grey, and colors get desaturated. Instead, some TVs will use a anti-glare coating.

I don't really agree with this statement. It doesn't sound accurate.

In the case of Samsung it's a bogus control and should be turned off and left on 0.
It adds artifacts, not good. turn off and leave on 0.

Not true for Panasonics at least up until this year, sharpness should be set with a test pattern.

I agree I normally turn mine to 0 but found with certain patterns in the test disc that 20 gave me the best results.

Ditto, mine was set using a test pattern to 26. However, many of the high end Pannys like the VT series look best at 0 which is the setting D-Nice recommends.
