Actually, I don't think we are in disagreement at all. I find it refreshing that you mention that 35mm tops out at about 3K in terms of perceived resolution. I get people arguing with me all the...

But someone had presented a solid business case to the studio for releasing the film in HFR (more and higher priced ticket sales!), AND Peter Jackson had the clout. That's a potent combo.

My Stephenson project has a 4K post-production work flow, but the one digital effect in my trailer (the fangs growing) was rendered at 2K. Even on my 4K monitor it's tough to tell the difference. ...
