Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Grading & Discussion (Spoilers
I always assumed that films were pretty much trying to work their way up to Trek's Holodecks. I really have no problem with a movie looking like it was filmed live, in the last couple months I watched the filmed productions of the Phantom of the Opera and Memphis plays, and I didn't have any more trouble getting into them than I would a regular movie.
