Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Grading & Discussion (Spoilers

I think "what is cinematic" is a question that is far too vague. Semantic debates rarely end well (if they ever end ). Better is: How "realistic" should cinema look? When you're in a theater (home or otherwise), is illusion preferable to near-reality? I suppose it all comes down to personal preference. There are people who still prefer 2D over 3D, models and puppets over CGI, b&w over color. But with very few of us actually having seen 48fps yet, it's difficult to say how this new development will fit into the evolution of: "what is cinematic"?
