High Frame Rate film in Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug

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.
