you don't have to sit up perfectly but don't lean back too far because it becomes a cable row and not a lat pulldown. A little lean never hurt anybody. Also don't swing. I see people use the lean back just to get momentum to get more weight down.

Watch this bro. Milos tells what every angle of the latpulldown does.

I would much prefer chins overpulldowns though due to the fact it involves more of the core.
