Of course definitely. But now you used the correct expression. You can notice the difference between a game at 60 fps and 100 fps. But in essence that's very different from being able to actually see the difference between 60 fps and 100 fps, for all the things I said (+ microsttutering/uneven framerate). As long as you focus on something in particular you can see much more of it, you also see a lot less of everything else, this is what illusionists use to their advantage. In a game you usually focus on certain things, a low number of things, like the crosshair, the enemy, a door from where an enemy can show up, etc. You are very sensitive to changes on those things.
In amovie your brain is more open to all the info that comes at each frame, thus less frames are not as harmful, though I'm sure everyone has noticed that the low framerate of movies is far far more evident on fast paced scenes with low details, such as a flying object with a completely blurred background.
Now to add to the topic, although I'd like these high resolutions I'd probably prefer good color at below $500 and faster response times and higher refresh rates, in that order, before higher resolution.
