 Rings!

I really enjoyed the film. Some have complained about the high frame rate, but I found it added a lot of needed detail...to everything. I will say however, if you are prone to motion sickness it could be an issue. The clarity and the dept bring you into the picture and fast moving scenes can have the same affect as a motion simulator. The acting was fantastic, everyone owned their characters. The pace of the film was fantastic, I did not feel I had been sitting for almost 3 hours. They really leave you wanting more. So far I have seen it in 3D HFR and plan on seeing it in IMAX 3D HFR this coming week, followed by a viewing in a Dolby Atmos theater. If I still haven't had my fill, I will see it 2D just for the experience. Over all, I say it's a must see a few times kind of movie.
