One hell of a coincidence. I was thinking of the same idea (as a personal project). Instead, using very distinctive movie color schemes. English Patient, Gone with the Wind, Psycho, Dr. Zhivago etc.

Cool stuff...

I sure hope that I didn't sound like I was complaining earlier, your settings are excellent, but I think that I am going to pull the black in a little.
I didn't take it all as "complaining" :), I was just trying to be sure that we considered all options. I use a Mac too and I found the colors of the powerbook to be much darker than the ones of a calibrated monitor. PCs are off too.

Glad the colors work for you, your project sound fun and interesting.

I've got a combination of Cinema display with a separate LCD with a full screen canvas, an HD LCD and a Hi-res CRT in our main room.
I've tweaked our own "universal" setting over time that uses Paolo's color with a -1 Master Black and +2 Stretch in Cine Gamma (all other Parameters similar to Tim's Wide setting) and found it to be a great default, that you can open up with + gamma, or crush/stretch as necessary, but it's a great start.
