I saw it in 3D Imax. Though some family members liked it, three of us
didn't. It made us dizzy and visually was hard to follow, except when the
scenes were stationary. It was like looking through an HD microscope or
binoculars. I'll watch it in 2D next time.
@justamacguy I...think you would but people have to get used to it first, and
the producers figure out how to use it right and to good effect...
I can't figure out why people wouldn't like it. If you have a nice new
HDTV in your house your are watching off-air TV at 30 frames and you are
watching many new satellite broadcasts at 60 frames. I produce all of my BluRay
weddings and 1080 resolutions and 60p (sixty full frames per second) and I have
no complaints. Why wouldn't you want smoother, more lifelike motion in the
I have noticed the same effect on HD screens. Big budget films look like they
are shot with a home digital video recorder when you watch them of these big,
crystal clear flat screens. Don't like it.
If they really want to increase movie attendance, they should improve the
content of the films. Movies have largely become cess pool of special effects
void of story and real dialog. New technology is great, but what about the
quality of the script?
I believe this film will be beautiful to the eyes.
Moviegoers watching an early screening of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected
Journey” complained of nausea and headaches. The movie was shot in 3D and
at a higher speed for effect, which could be the culprit for why people may be
reacting negatively. The same complaints were made by some after screening
“Avatar” and “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.”

I just watched Return of the King again a few nights ago. I don't remember
much of the film being in slow motion. Please elaborate as to what parts are in
I guess you could try playing any movie at 48 frames per second instead of the
standard 24 fps and watch the whole movie in half the time?
Funny. Filmed at a higher frame per second rate but - if it's like Return
of the King - half the movie will be in slow motion.
