 Rings!

Despite the rather mixed reviews from critics regarding both the story line and the high frame rate of the first Hobbit installment, I thoroughly enjoyed both. At first the film seemed too smooth, but after five minutes I adapted to the frame rate and was completely immersed in the film. Beautiful shots of New Zealand were stunning in 48fps which eliminated all the artifacts and jutter. The pace of the film was slower than one would expect, but that made it even more enjoyable because instead of compressing scenes to fit two films, the fact that there are three lets the story expand and thus there is more time to immerse yourself in the scenes. Overall, it was my favorite movie experience of the year and I hope to watch it again to find Sir Peter Jackson's Cameo.
