So, even though you can adjust a backlighted image to the same exact parameters as a printed image, or an actual physical object, it will always look different....
(And, because a modern 4k TV can match the color and brightness so well, it can actually make the basic difference between the image types more noticeable.)
It could be some of the sets I've seen had the wrong settings, contrast jacked etc but I think it's the backlighting itself combined with the higher resolution that makes images appear artificial to me.
I've seen a fair amount of sets, some of which were calibrated and they just didn't do it for me. The picture is incredible, bright/vibrant colors and great detail though.
Appreciate the input, coincidentally I'm familiar with the aspects you addressed as I used to do post production video/audio work at a studio in NJ. We used Media 100, After Effects etc.
Got to work on a lot of material for Johnson & Johnson, K-Mart, Volvo and a few others.
Also spent a decade doing graphic artwork (Photoshop, Illustrator et al) and always had to explain to clients that the printed image can never match what they see on a lighted screen; not
to mention the RGB to CMYK conversion.
I think it's a personal preference that I'm drawn more to what you'd see at a good theater although the step up to a 4K HDR capable projector was a huge upgrade in my theater.
It also makes a difference that I'm projecting a 165" image with the front row being about 15' away. Just about perfect for immersion/believe-ability IMO.
