I wish these silly-assed, bored, too-much-time-on-their-hands movie directors would just DIRECT the movie instead of trying to implement THEIR ideas on how we should watch their films or anyone else's films for that matter.
Yeah, god forbid those damn directors would actually experiment every once in a while and try new ideas & techniques with their films.

So the only argument against it is, again, just like with 3D, is "OMG IT'S NEW I DON'T LIKE NEW!"

and they said about Sound, oh and Color...

I think I'm seeing it in 48FPS, but I'm not sure if IMAX is doing 48 or 24. I hope that its 48FPS.

Can't wait for the standard frame rate to high frame rate conversions.

My argument against 3D is and always has been "These glasses give me a migraine."

I haven't decided for sure, but I'm tempted to try to see it in HFR 3D. Mainly just because I'm curious how different it looks.

No, it sounds to me like the main argument is it makes the movie look cheap and like a live theater production on PBS.

I'm certainly curious to see 48fps, but it just seems completely wrong for a movie like The Hobbit, which is kinda supposed to have that dreamlike, larger than life feel.

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

WRT 3D, Hugo was the first time the tech made me feel immersed in the film. But it was to a great extent, a stylized presentation. Even so, 3D still reminds me that I'm just watching a movie. Without yet having seen 48fps, I don't know if it'll elicit the same response in me. But it's worth keeping an open mind.

I was about to say... Isn't directing telling the audience how to watch the story?

"it makes the movie look cheap" can be translated into "it makes the movie look different".

It's like you haven't even read any of the arguments against 48fps
