Honestly, go to a Best Buy or where ever and ask someone to show you the difference with a Blu-Ray movie. The biggest difference I've noticed is that with 120Hz, the movies just don't look "theatrical" anymore. It's too fast/smooth for me and doesn't look theatrical/movie-like to me.

So now when I watch movies, I go 60Hz. Otherwise, I'll do 120Hz for football games, etc.

EDIT: I hope that I'm on the right track. If 120Hz doesn't cause what I mentioned, then oops. That's just what I've been told.
I do see the difference between 120Hz and 60Hz. 120Hz makes the movie go smooth, super duper smooth, right? But on regular channel, analog channels I mean, it's just gonna flicker as if it will stutter, right? This is why I am not too sure about it...
