Disclaimer: the next I confess I have no idea what I'm talking about:
Based one what' you're saying, there are 3 more chances (24, 40 and 60+) for 120Hz to appear better on the screen. Does this not also mean that frames between 24-29 and 40-59 will look better on the 120Hz display?

I picked up on this, too. I think it's because some scenes are 60fps-enabled and others are 24-fps enabled. It is very annoying, and I've noticed it more in CG-heavy movies--like when Avatar was playing in Best Buy.

Hmm, interesting. So in a lot of cases the 120Hz monitor will actually have better picture animation than an HDTV, because it lacks motion interpolation and just has a naturally awesome refresh rate?

Does anyone have any tips?
