Tolkien Fan Level: 5
Film Format Seen? 3D 48 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes

I've seen the film now 3 times; twice in IMAX 3D 24 FPS, and once in 3D 48 FPS. I loved seeing all of the individual personalities of the dwarves. I'm also a pretty big fan of the 48 FPS. Personally, I don't see the problem that people have with it. I've read a lot, and heard what people said that hated it. I have just found what they've said to be based the level of exposure to 48 FPS, and nothing more. If it was all we knew, and Peter Jackson released the film at 24 FPS, and that was the revolutionary new technology, we'd all be complaining about how blurry the map looked, how blurry the dwarf city looked, etc. Those were my only complaints about the 3D IMAX, which were both solved by 48 FPS. My hope is that the Blu-ray is released at 48 FPS.
