Late to the party. Can't Post

I got round to watching the 2D version of The Hobbit - on the last official day of UK release, having seen the 3D 48fps version earlier. From what had been a confused jumble of disjointed imagery - half live play, half fairground ride - watching the 2d 24fps version was a revelation. I was seeing the book on the screen for the first time.

There was an interesting theory somewhere on the internet that, at 24fps, your brain can just get the fact that it's a series of still images - like a flip-book, and that this makes the brain focus on the narrative - you're literally seeing a story book come to life. With 48fps, you lose this focus on narrative, and you're back to looking at mundane reality. But you know that what you're seeing isn't actually real - so it jolts you out of involvement in the story. Anyway, I think that's what happened to me when I watched the HFR version. Which is why I prefer the storybook style of 24fps. Does anyone else have a similar take on this?
