How will the critical verdict on HFR affect DOS and TABA? Can't Post

AUJ is significant in that it introduces a whole new format for cinema simaultaneously with launching a new Middle Earth movie trilogy. My impression from the very many (but not all ) critical reviews of AUJ were that it was not received well. It's debatable how much this format influenced the overall critique of the film. The idea has also been raised that there may have been technical deficiencies in some theaters that resulted in a less-than-ideal viewing for some critics. The HFR factor I think is fairly polarizing even among fans. So ...

Is WB committed to presenting DOS and TABA with the HFR format option? A comment from a studio exec at the NY premier did seem entirely supportive of this idea.

Will or should critics who dislike the HFR format see the next two movies in the traditional 2D or 3D because of their initial negative experience or are they obligated to see the HFR version? After all, PJ has repeatedly stated that HFR is the format he intended The Hobbit should be seen in.

If critics do opt out of HFR for the next two films, do you think these movies will be more "fairly" reviewed? Does the HFR format somehow magnify the movie's excesses (for those who feel it went OTT in some instances)?

What say you? I have no set opinion myself. I am just curious to see how it will play out.
