That might sound rational to say, but I don't think it's the actual truth. It only makes sense in syllogistic form
You're right. We wouldn't want to bring rational thought to a discussion. It IS the internet after all.
Har Har Har but of course you fail to see the actual point I was making.

But not just me:
From Den of Geek:
The suspension of disbelief is what cinema is built upon. Whether it is simply accepting one person can pretend to be another, or something as grandiose as believing a man can fly, films are nothing without it. And this suspension of disbelief is one step closer to being ripped away by High Frame Rate (HFR). It essentially makes most of the film look completely unrealistic and fake, which in a grand fantasy film is not something you want. While it works superbly in the large scale set-pieces and with CGI, removing the boundaries between what is model work and what is computer generated, whenever it cuts back to the actors you are instantly back in the studio with them, complete with terrible lighting and obvious prosthetics, and away from Middle Earth. Itís the first thing you notice from the very first scene, with a jerky motion blur apparent in many of the actors movements. You'll barely be able to get used to it over the three hours of the film, and as much as we like seeing every pore of Martin Freemanís face, this is a film best watched with the more traditional filmic substance of 24fps.
No more adventures! I'm not going that way!
