From the 3DLut file, drop down and select one of the preset Luts. If you select ‘TensionGreen’ preset, this will give your image that Matrix movie look. If you select ‘Teal and Orange’ preset, this will give your image the Transformers movie look.

Note that, if you select a Lut and the effect is too strong you can always lower the opacity.
