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

I've seen it in both 24fps and the 48fps 3D version, for this film the 3D was not of any particular value (perhaps it will come into play more in the later films)but the HD detail was eye popping. The 48 fps made the view much more realistic in scenes with fast movement, the blurring in 24fps in those scenes was noticeable. Acting was superb, dialogue also, the vistas in some parts of the film were fantastic. Jackson turned a children's book into an adventure blockbuster. All in all a wonderful film (even though Jackson did wander away from the book a bit at times).
Can't wait to see the next two!!
