48 fps HFR Cinema? I’ll pass on this if you don’t mind…

I’m almost scared to post my “verdict” here, after seeing The Hobbit in 3D HFR this morning – because many of you will probably disagree…

I thought it looked horrible. Very disappointing. It looked like video many times, including the video-like blown out highlights.
The camerawork looked haphazard and even sloppy and the fight scenes were stroboscopic. Many shots out of focus, probably because of shallow DOF and lenses wide open.
I must say, all more or less as expected…

If this is the future of cinema (all hail the video look), i definitely don’t want to be part of that future…

    I’ve seen the last Hobbit (anticipating) — But noticed nothing-special in negative way…….

    Watch the skies in the “barrel scene”. Absolutely unacceptable quality.
