10 things we're excited about now that the election is over
'Game of Thrones,' summer movie trailers, 'Community,' Bruno Mars and more
'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' in 48 frames per second
There is one reason I am anxiously awaiting the release of "The Hobbit" that has nothing to do with Peter Jackson or JRR Tolkien. I want to finally get my chance to sit in a movie theater and see a full film projected in what Warner is now calling HFR, or 48 fps digital 3D. It's got to be one of the most expensive film experiments of all time, shooting a movie as big as "The Hobbit" in this still brand-new digital format, but early reports indicate that it is indeed a major shift in how we process projected images. Now all that's left is seeing whether the audiences actually cares or not. No matter what, I'll be seeing the film that way as soon as I possibly can. Could the future really be starting this Christmas?
