    The Hobbit was already filmed in a higher frame rate, so even if you see the “basic” movie, it’s going to be at a higher FR than usual.

    I’d also like to pipe up that the human eye can’t really “see” more than 60 FPS, so a higher frame rate isn’t likely going to look too much different than a normal movie.

    I haven’t seen the Hobbit, but last year my FIL got a new tv that had an option to up the frame rate… and it was weird and unsettling. We ended up turning that feature off. It’s kinda like Uncanny Valley, what they say about robots. The closer they get to being “real”, the more freaky they are.

    I don’t know what format my screening was in, but some scenes were so…vivid, I guess? Fast moving?…that I was a bit dizzy. I can’t even imagine seeing it in 3d or some other format.

    @Hyperventilate:  The higher frame rate used in The Hobbit is 48 fps, which would be noticable.  The standard for many years has been 24 fps.

    I’m curious to see the film in the higher frame rate.  One colleague thought the higher frame rate was nice, so all the feedback hasn’t been negative.

    Television is projected at 60 fps.  So, your eye is already accustomed to seeing something faster than 24 fps.  The Hobbit was shot at 48 fps, so it’s just going to feel slightly more like watching sports or video games than a traditional film.

    I want to.  We went and saw it on Sunday, but I would totally go and see it a second time (and a third, fourth and fifth time >_>)

    I saw it in IMAX 3d and honestly it made me feel very sick. But it didn’t bother DH at all.

    @mypinkshoes:  I did. I was not a fan. It seemed fake almost. Like I was watching a play? idk. I just couldn’t quite get into it the same for some reason.

    @mypinkshoes:  unfortunately I didn’t get used to it. 🙁 i kept trying to adjust my 3d glasses but nothing helped. hopefully I am in the minority though, I’m not sure!
