I have no desire to see it in 3D.
Exactly. I want to see it at the IMAX, but no 3d please. Saw Thor in non-3d, it was good. Saw Captain America in 3d, did not like so much. Just recently rewatched Capt in non-3d, so much better.
Yeah I promised myself that I'll only watch 3D films that were actually shot/made in 3D like Avatar and Toy Story 3.
Have you guys heard of Peter Jackson shooting the Hobbit in 48 frames per second? I heard it's like watching film in 120hz/240hz on your tv. Most are complaining that it seems too real and doesn't feel like a movie. I'm personally curious how it would look in theaters. I love it on my television and once I got used to it, I odn't even notice it much. This will probably be the next new experience in movie theaters though.
Just the evolution of film. Remember vhs?
When I see the occasional sports game on those big SuperHyperMegaHD TVs at Costco or wherever, images that sharp still blow my mind. A move bred that way would be incredible.
It's not live TV/sports that's the problem, it's movies with special effects/elaborate sets that really throws things off. The resolution is so clear that costumes/sets/makeup/CGI/basically everything that makes a fictional movie "believable" looks about as real as a high school production of that movie.
It's very jarring.
^This. Hate the soap opera effect.
That was exactly the complaint but I do like it on my television and honestly, I cannot see myself going back. Like I said, once you get used to it, you barely notice it at all even going back and forth to different television sets.
I'm just not sure how I'd feel about it being 50 feet in front of me so I certainly am looking forward to the experience.
But yeah, the main complaints have been the props looking like toys on the big screen and has less of a cinematic film.
Am weighing going to an IMAX at midnight vs plane departure time for SF X
It's just a really odd choice given the subject matter. Tolkein is written for nostalgic sepia tones, for a kind of blurry reminiscence of better times that are half-made up because they're only half-remembered and the able teller is filling in the blanks. I don't want it to aim for realism. I'd be interested to see it on like a Mission Impossible movie (was going to say a Bond film but that totally would be soap opera style) but not the Hobbit.
There will be 24fps & 48fps screenings. Much like 3D, you don't have to watch it at 48fps if you don't want to.
EDIT: I'm keeping an open mind on this. He did a good job with the LOTR films, so hopefully he knows what he is doing here.
Well to be fair, he fucked up Two Towers pretty hard. I mean that film was so messed up that they couldn't even get the question of "hey which two towers are we talking about" right.
That's a good point. It would probably look best on action films but I'd still check it out just to see how it is. It'll be an interesting experience to say the least.
I really liked Two Towers. More so then the first.
I only liked the second half of Two Towers but I enjoyed the first film as a whole.
