Vincent Laforet See 3 Versions of 'The Hobbit' and Explains Why HFR Fails for Him

Publish date:

Ever the cinephile and student of film, Vincent Laforet saw The Hobbit in HFR 3D, standard 3D, and 2D all on the same day. He writes, "On one end of the spectrum I had one of the most disappointing cinematic experiences in recent memory, and on the other extreme I fell into the film and enjoyed it very much – all watching the EXACT same film mind you…I recommend any filmmaker out there try doing this – as it will reaffirm so many of the things that make film 'magical' and ultimately what differentiates the medium from all other forms of entertainment and visual media. For some, HFR will be a potential new tool in their arsenal for telling certain types of stories in a new and exciting way, while others will be reminded of why the 2D format at 24 fps has stood the test of time for so long."
