The Hobbit – My Two Cents on High Frame Rate

I sat anxiously in the theater waiting for The Hobbit to start, everything I knew about what to expect from high frame rate had me nervous. Would it look like I was watching a 60fps soap opera? Would it have that tainted aesthetic of every consumer digital video camera from the days before the 24fps 35mm DSLR revolution? I had made a pact with myself though. Throw away any preconceived notions about the format and simply watch it with an open mind.
