I see it is 3 films now--eh, I would've been OK with two (but not one).
It's three movies! That's news. I wonder why they broke it up like that? I'm listening to the Hobbit right now with my kids. I can see two films, but three?
From what I'm reading -- the third one is meant to make the connection to the Lord of The Ring trilogy more direct and make more of a transition between The Hobbit and others.
Of course, it couldn't possibly be about, oh... money. Nah... That's not it at all...
Plus three years of awards ceremonies instead of just two.
Not to mention 3 times the ticket sales. Why settle for a mere $8.50 a person for a one time showing when you can 3 times that.
mmmm 48 ffs. headaches and dizzyness in HD here I come!
I don't know... I might like it better, because I have a tendency to spot motion in movies, especially at the edges of my vision. 3D, though, tends to give me a headache.
The 'added' material is actually the bits from Tolkien's notes that never made the book. It just fleshes out the characters and background.
Hmmm...that could be where the material from The Simarillion comes in, if that's accurate info.
Corrupt Tolkien's legacy for something so base?!? I won't believe it!
I need more context here. What does this rate really mean to me?
Also, FFS means something entirely different to me than FPS :lol:
over ten bucks where I live.
Heh, I assumed he meant FPS!
Some say the high frame rate is making some people motion sick?
I've heard motion-sickness concerns. It's true about what's said in the quote from Bob Hubbard--objectively soap operas look more real, but I experience them as being cheap-looking. I'm not sure why.
Well...soap operas are cheap. No one tunes in for the great production values, educational content, or artistic merit. They tune in for short-attention-span drama thats produced in high volume.
This article was interesting reading about the frame rate.123
