I purchased a 50" GT50 HDTV a few days ago and I absolutely LOVE it! The picture is amazing. I was playing around with the picture modes though and i noticed one called "THX Cinema". How is this different from the regular "Cinema" mode? When i switch between them all that's obvious is that the picture looks a bit smaller but more complete (like it zooms out a tiny bit). Of course I'm completely ignorant to all this technical stuff so what do I know. Can anyone explain this to me? I the THX mode optimal for movies and such?

It has never really been established exactly what this feature does, other than adjust the contrast, brightness, and sharpness controls. It is probably a "set it and forget it" adjustment.

It means that mode meets the THX certification criteria for picture quality, the THX modes tend to be a little more accurate out of the box but they usually are still not entirely accurate.
