For me, I like to view anything that's video-based on Standard, which seems a bit brighter and more "immediate", i.e. "live" (specifically sports and news). For film-based sources, I prefer Movie mode.
EDIT: To go along with what moonhawk says below, for daytime viewing of movies, I generally just raise the Dynamic Contrast to Low; at night I turn it off. That seems to be all I need to do to compensate for changes in ambient light. For sports, etc. on Standard, I generally can leave the Dynamic Contrast on Off, day or night, since it is usually bright enough.
