Well, that's how I thought you were confused. There is plenty of content (like most of it) for which the 120hz was meant to address. IE, any blu-ray/dvd/hd-dvd (like 95% of them) are shot at the native film speed of 24fps. 120hz is used to interpolate it more efficiently, so that you get to see the film natively.
I was confused when you asked him what content he'll be using to take advantage of the 120hz. Because just about anything he watches, the 120hz will interpolate. That's why I wasn't sure or not if you were aware of just what the point of 120hz was?
To further clarify just what 120hz does; here's a decent explanation off the 'net:
"the only problem is most TVs are 60hz or 60fps so to get a 24fps source on to a 60hz monitor you must do what's called 3:2 pulldown where 1 frame is shown 3 times and the next twice
like frame AAABBCCCDDEEEFF etc.(which makes the film look slightly choppy)
and that is where the new 120hz tvs come in, they run at 120fps so they do whats called 5:5 pulldown for 24fps sources making it look like AAAAABBBBBCCCCCDDDDDEEEEEFFFFF etc(which will just look like ABCDEF)
and that gives you the most natural looking film because it retains the original frame rate"
So asking what content you're going to utilize with the 120hz is what threw me off, Got Stripes.
