I'm sort of here and there when it comes to THE HOBBIT. I did see the first one in 48fps 3D. Thought it was pretty good, but nothing great like LOTR. Other than money, I really don't understand the point of stretching this story into three parts. Two parts was already pushing it. Oh well, as long as they're entertaining I guess.

Agreed one hundred percent.  I really didn't care for the first one. It just dragged on and on and the frame rate made everyone seem like they were halfway running at all times.  There was NO reason for this to be made into three parts.

I remember how it was very jarring during the first couple of seconds. I really did not know what to expect with this format, it can't be told but shown. My first reaction just based off the opening logos was "OH FUCK". :lol:Then the actual 48fps shoot footage, "OH FFFFFFFUUUCK." I found it very distracting, but not as distracting as the group of teenagers around the corner that did nothing but chat and giggle to eachother for the first 30 mins, THAT excruciating! For many years I hear everyone complain about people chatting in theater, but I never had that experience until then. I wanted to rip their fucking heads off like a troll.

Back to 48fps. Yeah, again it was very jarring for the first 15 minutes. It wasn't until after the first two thirds that I started to ease with it that I no longer felt distracted. It is a very new format, so didn't want to dismiss something because I was too used to the 24fps format. I'll give Jackson credit for actually giving audiences a choice on this matter rather than having every screening using the frame rate, and only restricting it to 3D screens as 3D was the only reason he went with 48fps to eliminate motion blur. I can get that I suppose. Not sure if I'm gonna bother seeing that frame rate again when the second comes out though. At least I gave it a shot.
