I like Christina Ricci. She is beautiful in The Man Who Cried. Btw why the movie has such title? It is all above the Christina Ricci character. The movie music is wonderful too.
When I have a new setup (new projector in case of the AE100), I tweak the picture to death in the first few days while watching tons of short clips which I'm know very well. Then it's movie time. Usually I won't tweak the picture during the middle of a movie unless something is obviously wrong.
My theory of picture tunning is to get a best overall balanced from many reference movie clips first. Then leave the setting and watch new movie. Unless something is seriously wrong, I won't and shouldn't tweak the picture in the middle of a movie because that will destroy the balance of the current picture setting. If you think a single movie seems off on the brightness or contrast or color or anything, it should be just the character of the movie or the director intention or the DVD was just done wrong! If you change the picture control for that problem disc, than all other normal DVD picture will be affected too. If you must change the setting, then remember to restore the correct balance setting after finished the problem disc.
Then again I know some people like to always tweak the picture here and there...
