At this point I do not know yet if the Samsung 120HZ does a 5:5 pulldown and properly display 1080P/24 similar to a movie projector. It took several months before the Sony LCD and rear projectors appeared on the list after they were released. Waiting for professional reviews can take awhile.
I have a 71 and it does a nice job with 24p. The AMP feature smooths it very nicely too.
On the 71 thread there is a lot of debate about whether they do 5:5
The 71 was reviewed by CNET and they said that the Samsung engineers said that it does do 5:5.
The 71 accept 24p inputs, but the problem is nobody seems to be able to tell the difference between 5:5 and the alternative where the TV telecines (3:2 pulldown), then deinterlaces, then doubles the 60hz framerate to 120. Maybe somebody with the right background can eyeball it and tell, I don't know. So far such a person has not stepped forward, and I have seen nothing about a way to find out with testing equipment.
