Color Grading in Filmmaking

There's a part in this video where the creator matches a standard video file with one scene from the dark, contrasty, and moody movie Fight Club. Pretty cool. I've done a bit of this on my own for some video work in the past but I can't say that I've done enough of it to know exactly what I'm doing. I guess it's similar to matching color in re-touching -- but video work just seems to have so much more knobs, adjustments, and controls overall. I definitely get overwhelmed. This video sort of makes it seem easy though. I just might have to jump back into Final Cut Pro X to give it another go.
