I saw The Hobbit at AMC Tyson's in the 3D IMAX theater. I saw it there because it is the nearest theater to me showing the film the in the 48fps high-frame-rate (HFR) form. HFR is a technology that allows movies in theaters to have the same brilliant HD you see at home. If you like the way that Avatar looks in Blu-Ray on your LCD TV at home, you will see almost the same thing at the theater.
As a movie, I think if you liked Lord of the Rings (LOTR), this tells the earlier story of Bilbo Baggins, you should enjoy this movie as well. Just Be warned there will be THREE Hobbit movies, so this ends looking forward to more.
So, was it worth it? $54 for three people? If you know me, you know the answer was YES!!
HFR?? Yeah, I like it, but I also like the soap opera effect you may see on LCD/LED TV.
Story?? What's not to like? M
