"The Hobbit": Peter Jackson annoys film buffs with higher frame rate

  • reaction Many fans who saw an early ten-minute screening of the film at CinemaCon found the frame rate to be a significant change, with some saying that the film felt artificial and fairly jarring to watch.
  • rebuttal Jackson stood his ground: “It’s literally a new experience, but you know, that doesn’t last the entire experience of the film — not by any stretch, [just] 10 minutes or so. …  you settle into it.” Good move? source
