While the jury may still be out on how effective/useful the increased frame rate is, so far, the Hobbit looks to add to Peter Jackson's already large Oscar trophy display case. I personally can't wait to see it.

What do you think? If you want to see the Hobbit, will it be in standard def (24 fps) or the higher frame rate? And what of the film in general?


For those of you who don't know what 48fps means:

The first film to be filmed at 48 FPS was The Hobbit, a decision made by its director Peter Jackson. At a preview screening at CinemaCon, the audience's reaction was mixed after being shown some of the film's footage at 48p, with some arguing that the feel of the footage was too lifelike (thus breaking the suspension of disbelief)

Do you want to see 48p become the standard definition for movies? (The normal now is half that, 24p)
