there was a hugely negative reaction to the first screening of The Hobbit.
from what I understand, the framerate is 48 fps and it made everything look fake and like it was a movie, which is expressly NOT the goal of the cinematographer.
honestly this most recent "3D" trend is killing me. I hate it so very much; I had to see the last Harry Potter in 3D (as a gift to my younger sister) and the movie in 3D looked like complete ass compared to when I saw part I in 2D.
Im fine with 4k, and Im fine with movies shot on digital, but really this 3D **** is a plague.
