I'd love to start a thread about the differences between film and digital cinematography... but let's just keep discussion focused on The Hobbit for the time being. I'll probably start a thread of that nature at some point over the weekend (or if anyone else wants to, they're more than welcome to do so)!
Back to The Hobbit, I have absolutely no intention of seeing it. I think I liked the LOTR films when I saw them way back when, but the biggest memories I have of them are sitting for hours and hours in a cinema waiting for them all to end. Suffice to say that the negative things I've heard about 48ps have done nothing to endear me to a film that I was - at best - tentative about seeing. I'm glad that the people who have seen it tend to enjoy it, but this is a definitely "not for me" type of film.
