Correct TV Picture Mode Setting

To any and all the TV experts, gurus and techies out there, what do you think is the best picture mode to set a new TV on with the "standard", "movie or cinema" or "dynamic or vivid" as they're called by most manufacturers and especially with the Samsung's having a setting called "natural for everyday viewing with regular tv, movies, sports, etc.?"

If you're going with a standard, "out of the box", preset, it's really personal preference. Myself, I can't stand the "Vivid/Demo" mode, it pumps up color, contrast, and brightness, giving a cartoon look to everything. I prefer the more subdued cinema mode. Short of getting a professional in to calibrate your display, the Spears & Munsil, and DVE - HD Basics, discs are pretty good for calibrating your system by eye. I haven't tried the Disney WOW disc, but I may pick it up...

I oftentimes find the "cinema" modes to be a bit washed out (using a projector). Is it that you just prefer the more natural colors instead of the pop that you can get with a "dynamic/vivid" mode?
