That's just not possible. 3D, yes, not everyone is capable of stereoscopic vision. HFR, no. Everyone is capable of processing that. You might not have recognized a difference, but you clearly processed it properly.

No way, Movie 2 will be all about Smaug, the way Two Towers was all about Saruman. Movie 3 will be Battle of 5 Armies.
I just read the book and there's not a lot of events between Frying Pan and Smaug. You've got Beorn, spiders, elves, Laketown, that's it!
Plus all the stuff that happens to Gandalf when he's not present in the book.
After I've seen Hobbit 1, I think splitting it up into three movies was a good idea.
