    It doesn't really matter to me @ghostman. I'm seeing whatever version my local theater has when it's released :P

    @ghostman I'm going for the Hobbit, not the technology.

    @bawnian-dexeus I know my theater has it in 48fps. All you have to do is call them up and ask.

    @ghostman That's assuming all theaters are equipped. Probably find out on day one

    Question is will either of you be seeing it in High Frame Rate (48fps) or Standard Frame Rate (24fps)?

    You can take one look at this photo and tell it's going to carry a much more lighthearted feel, which I'm more than fine with.

    @bawnian-dexeus@narrator I'm just happy that they didn't tack "3D" onto the title somewhere...

    @bawnian-dexeus Agreed. The wondrous world on screen is more then enough on 2D. 3D might be kool on certain scene like when the Trolls grab the Dwarves and such, but all on all not needed.

    @narrator Nope. Lord of the Rings didn't need it, nor does Hobbit

    I was going to originally, @bawnian-dexeus. I planned on seeing it in 3D and in IMAX. Ha! Ended up treating my brother and sister to the film as well, so I downgraded to standard 2D. It's holiday season, after all, and no one has money. Funnily enough, I was offered free tickets to an advanced Monday night showing, but turned them down to watch the film with my siblings as is our tradition. As big a fanboy as I am, I'm surprised I turned them down. Yourself?

    @narrator Seeing it in 3D?

    Why is that, @raoulduke33? I'm honestly just curious. If it's the designs of the Great Goblin and other characters, then know that they were done mostly in part by Del Toro. If it's the tone from the trailers so far, then that can't be helped as we're both aware the Hobbit is very colorful and contrasting with LotR. As such, we can't expect the films to be the same in tone.

    The more I see the more I worry.
