Gone and Back Again–Return of The Hobbitses

48fps HFR. OK, that happened. Maybe it will happen again, but if Peter Jackson has any choice he whould probably do what instincts (should have) said to do originally: Go for 60. He should certainly insist that any exhibitor showing the movie in 3D upgrade and show the movie in HFR. 

I saw The Hobbit the first time in 3D 24fps and craved 48 during every scene with anything but slow movement…and should have known it would shine in slow movement times as well. It is as if the editor isn’t paying attention, making cuts at the wrong places and smearing everywhere. Film is dead. We don’t need the magic of judder and weave and unsaturated colors. We are not all Hollywood insiders who get the watch actual first-run prints in ultra-tweaked theaters. And we don’t need an imposed anachonism frame rate, especially for the tricks that 3D plays on the vision system.
