It certainly does feel like the reaction of people here to HFR is widely disparate... some like it, some are neutral [my reaction], and some hate it completely.
I wonder if there are variations between the way different theaters project it, like the brightness issue in 3D bulbs...?
I've got another option: I didn't notice it. Then again, I don't see 3D either (with 3D glasses, I see the movie like regular 2D). It's my eyes being wonky, so maybe that's why I don't notice the HFR either.
