Well, within the premise of a Fantasy its easy to explain

The way I put it, High Defintion makes the objects captured in the frame seem more real; High Frame Rate, however, makes theme seem more present. Since its closer to how the human eye percieves reallity, some part of your brain is convinced that the sights on the screen are right there, in front of you.

This has two issues. One, in the case of The Hobbit, it creates a dissonance with the subject matter: since the subject matter includes dragons, trolls, ogres, etcetra - that it looks so real and present makes you deny its realism all the more. Even the more "normal" characters like the Dwarves or Gandalf would look surreal to meet on the street.

Second, for most films, there's a dissonance with the format. If we're registering that what we're seeing is real and present, than we ought to see it through an authentic point of view: either a wide-shot or a POV. Any other camera placement, close-ups, use of slow-motion and certainly movement of the camera - will all create a dissonance between the realism of what you're seeing, and inherent lack of realism as to the lens you see it through.

I still don't think its a bad idea, and I think that as time passes it will be used more often, if not commonplace.
