Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes
 Rings!

I am impressed by the overall feel. It took a minute or two to get used to the 48fps but after that I didn't notice at all other then the very real feel of the film... I am interested in seeing it in "normal" fps so it can "feel" like LOTR ,but that's the only reason. The 3D portion was only really noticeable in a few scenes and when it was it was very impressive, but not something I NEEDED for this film to be great. It is an amazing telling of the story and I am looking forward to the next one next year. I will say one thing while time flies by for this film the end is very obvious as it is PJ's signature cliffhanger style. Not a bad thing at all just makes it easy to know the end of the film.
