I found I didn't have to do too many adjustments to the picture.
In Movie Mode, Warm2 is supposedly very accurate out of the box, but my own preference is setting the Color Temperature under Picture Options to Warm1 or Standard.
General picture settings are:
Backlight: Between 8 and 10, possibly slightly higher, depending on night or day viewing
Sharpness: 0, though I don't dislike a little bit of sharpening. The highest value I'll raise it to is about 15.
Under Advanced, I like setting Dynamic Contrast to Low for a bit more punch.
Under Picture Options:
Auto Motion Plus: Custom, Blur 10, Judder 0, LED Clear Motion On
Those AMP settings allow for a motion resolution of 1,200 and a blur-free image. Increasing the Judder value will introduce the soap opera effect, as well as some unwanted visual artifacts depending on the source and value used. Anything higher than a value of 3 and I'll start to notice the interpolated frames creating a quick fading of black during certain scene transitions.
Smart LED: Low or Standard to keep blacks deep and flashlighting to a minimum
Cinema Black: On
Cinema Black supposedly keeps uniformity consistent for the black horizontal bars in widescreen films. You can leave it enabled even if you're not watching content with those bars, however, as it apparently detects when it's needed.
