This may sound harsh but... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think the truth is he was trying to do what Avatar did with "3D".

His movie the lovely bones ran along side Avatar and got crushed. regardless of how you feel about Avatar or 3D

(personally i thought it was a neat movie and i basically despise the 3D craze, every movie HAS to be 3D these days...who cares!!?? in all honesty it takes me out of the movie having the glasses on and the effects constantly reminding me the movies in 3D, yes Avatar looked cool, but that was it really basic cliche story that was an original experience because of the 3D...sorry for the rant haha)

as a film maker he must have taken notice of its box office numbers and how 3D has taken over the movie industry and thought "well ill learn from my mistakes" and so he decided with his next big film he too would push some new cinematic experience, 48 fps. It didn't matter if the next new thing looked good he just knew he wanted to be the one pioneering it the way Avatar is, I can't blame him say critics LOVED 48 fps and some other movie did it and the hobbit got "beat out" because the new good "looking" movie got all the media attention the same way Avatar did.

luckily i don't think the 48 fps did anything to the actual movie itself (story telling wise etc..) so I don't really care, but I do feel bad for him since I think it's pretty much certain that 48 fps won't catch on and the "studio" people will probably give him a hard time about pushing a VERY expensive new "gimmick" that flopped.

again though the movie itself should be fine and still pull in a ton of money... the issue is taht people will probably opt not to see it in 48 fps, theaters might opt not to play it in 48 fps if people stop wanting to watch it that way, and especially for the next 2 films if people didn't like that experience they definitely will not watch it in that format and a lot of money will be lost.

but hey maybe it'll catch on right? i haven't seen the thing yet and maybe it really is something that just takes time to get used to, who knows?
