5:11 - Very noticable backlight bleeding happening.
It doesn't "support" 24FPS insofar as it can't set its refresh rate to a multiple of 24 (i.e. 24Hz, 48Hz, 72Hz, etc.) In theory an output of 24FPS would be smoother on a refresh rate that is a multiple of 24. In practice I think the difference will be very difficult to notice.

As for the black bars, movie often shoot at wider aspect ratios than 16:9 - I believe the movie that was playing was shot at 1.85:1 - which results in letterboxing at the top and bottom.

As for backlight bleed, I think all panels at that price point have it to some degree.
