 Rings!

I absolutely loved the 48 fps. I usually tend to get sick from 3D and massive screens, but the hfr solved both of those problems and added extreme realism to the movie. I did not think it made the sets and prosthetics look fake, and it definitely did not look like a home movie. The storyline was great, and I loved how it sticked close to the book. One of my favorite scenes was Radaghast at Dol Goldur. This was somewhat frightening, the way it should have been in lotr. Andy Serkis outdid himself as far as acting went, and the technology has only gotten better. I honestly can't think of a scene that I did not like in the movie. The directing and editing was superb with extreme attention paid to detail (even the trolls were in the same position that they were in the fellowship). I cannot wait to go watch it again.
