This is Netflix using the built in app on a 2016 p50 watching "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society". I also noticed the black levels of that movie are a little strange.
This "Potato Peel" movie is in 4K (2160p). If you're not use to watching 4K movies in 24VF, in can look 'smoother' with the motion than movies in Standard Def (480). Check your Noise settings. Have both of them OFF. Best to watch most HD content with Sharpness at 0. Sometimes I use 11.
Otherwise, due to intermittent motion problems with these Vizios, I leave Film Mode Off. Check the Reduce Judder setting. I have it at 0. If yours was set to 3 or especially higher, you'll see the SOAP/smoothing effect.
Best contrast with these Vizio VA panels is eye-level straight-on viewing. If the Display is below eye-level and/or your viewing is off-axis (left or right angle viewing), this reduces contrast and changes the color.
Do you have Calibrated Dark
Picture Mode selected? (For night viewing.)
This movie does look a little foggy, so you can make one or the other or a combo adjustment to increase Contrast with two setting modes:
I like to first reduce the Brightness setting away from 50. 43-to-40 for this movie. Or, you can start by changing the Gamma from 2.2 to 2.4 for more contrast. If 2.4 is not enough, reduce the Brightness setting from 50. Contrast should always be left at 50 unless meter-calibrated.
