Not sure how to start this thread so please bare with me
I understand how the technology is applied and what it is supposed to do.
so this thread is to discuss the movies that are...
a) best when played back at 1080p 24fps.
b) worst when played back at 1080p 24fps.
Noting to do with the movie itself or the 1080p 24fps technology.
this is for those that already have 1880p 24fps HD-DVD / BLU-RAY players and 1080p 24fps 120hz sets.
The reason for starting this is because I have discovered that some HD content does not always do well at 24fps and that there is little info on the movies themselves.

This is what I have so far

worst at 24fps
HD-DVD Lady On The Water looked better when played back at 1080p only.

best at 24fps
Live free or die hard
Shreck 3rd

At World's End

I had not played this one since I bought a set that accepts 1080p/24fps so last night I popped it in and...
Great picture at 24fps
but the total menus will flicker/roll real bad.
once out of the menu it plays fine.

Do you have an indicator of some kind telling you that the player /monitor is set at 24fps?

Hello there Pixelthis,
Yeah when I click display is shows what is being received in the upper RH corner
1080p/24fps when it the player detects that the movie does not support 24fps it will just play it back at 1080p of 1080i for SD DVD
But for lady in the water I had to turn it off completely for some reason the player thinks it can play it bask at that rate but it does not look very good.
I did find out that Pirates of the Caribbean at worlds end this player does have an issue that other players don't and apparently Samsung is working on a patch so I have heard.
