Engadget blah blah blah "The Desolation of Smaug shows Peter Jackson still hasn't perfected HFR"
Okay, so I saw The Desolation of Smaug in High Frame Rate. Didn't have any issue with eyestrain in 3-D so that was good. It did seem weird like watching television. (Much like watching The Sound of Music Live I wondered why it made me think of a daytime soap opera). I didn't see The Hobbit: Unexpected Journey in HFR so I can't compare the two.
At the end of this post it says something about the point of HFR being to make 3D better. I appreciate that. There seems to be a lot of 3D releases without a lot of effort which makes it easy for people to dismiss 3D cinema as a gimmick.
