Do you prefer to watch a "film" that looks like it was shot in someone's backyard and run through some crazy digital color grade filter? Because it's easier and cheaper...

It seems obvious I'm not getting anywhere so I'll bow out.

R.I.P. Cinema
I don't understand why you say that high barriers to entry result in better films. When films were expensive, and a handful of moguls controlled everything, lots of bad films were made. For every Maltese Falcon, there were a dozen Ma and Pa Kettle movies.

New technology allows for new techniques. Handheld cameras that could shoot in available light yielded a lot of good movies in the 1970s. Directors could shoot in the streets of New York without a giant crew.

Re: The Hobbit

I have to admit that I don't think I'm going to like it, at least initially, because it won't feel like it's "cinema." HD never had this issue, as all it does is get you closer to the theatrical presentation. I think it will take some getting used to before truly deciding if I like it or not.

However, Trumball's suggestion of having variable framerates does sound interesting. Perhaps a good balance would be to use 24fps for "ordinary" scenes and then switch to a higher rate for special cases like action scenes or anywhere where the director wants immediacy and realism. They already manipulate the way motion is perceived with things like slow motion and playing with the shutter angle (Saving Private Ryan and others).

Re: The Hobbit

Any chance we can get back to actually discussing the movie?

Looking forward to this. I never read LOTR or The Hobbit, and loved the LOTR trilogy, so I'm excited. I'm literally going in blind - I know nothing about this story.

It looks like a cheap BBC tv show at 1 fps

Reminds me of the image on the first book of The Hobbit I read.

Re: The Hobbit

Is it the same trailer thats out already?

On that note, I went to see Wrath of the Titans last week for $1. Movie sucked and so did the crowd. But when the trailer unexpectedly came on, I creamed my pants! I fucking love it and that song! Made the night worth it and I may go again just for the trailer and walk out.

Re: The Hobbit

I just want to see wtf this looks like in 48fps. I don't care about the 3D, I kind of know what to expect when solid talent uses those cameras. I just want to see this 48fps for myself.

Re: The Hobbit

I guess this means the second movie is going to be all Lake-town/Lonely Mountain?

Given all of the love they got for this type of scene in LOTR, don't be surprised if a good amount of time in part II is

Re: The Hobbit

So... this comes out in 5 months.
Does a list exist yet that shows exactly which theatres will be showing this in 48fps?

Re: The Hobbit

Too large of robes if he has to hold it up so he doesn't trip on it simply to walk.

That's was the street style back then for wizards. Equivalent to how "ganstas" wear their pants half-way to their knees now.
