Just my opinion but . . .
I never got why so many people like movie mode? I find its usually always darker and tinted yellowish green.
I know posters here are all about chasing the HDR movies (which are few and far between for now anyway) to see what the tv is capable of.
The dynamic mode is of course way to bright for many selections, but nice to demo and wow certain content like netflix 4k oceans.
I find the standard mode on this new KS series tv very good without even having to tweak it.
And I always calibrate my TV's settings with a DVD essentials disk. Still, I find I myself resetting the pics back to default as the newer tvs seem to have a pretty good handle on decent pic settings from the get go.
I've owned flat screens for maybe 15 years and never got the movie mode setting and now they are forcing us to only see HDR by using movie mode. The HDR+ setting is a nice addiction. Yes, I know its not real, but neither are "boob jobs" and I get along fine looking at "those" knowing they are not real!
I don't get the HDR hoopla just yet either, probably due to so little content out there or them remastering so many old movies to HDR.
So far, I would not be buying a tv based on a selection like a marco polo in HDR mode.
So much of Marco Polo (an HDR selection) looks like it was filmed in a studios dark basement.
