A while ago LG demonstrated HFR (video encoded at 100/120 fps) displayed on an OLED. They didn't say when they would release the TVs though. Though they said OLED was better for HFR than LCD I think,...

My post didn't only say they could have had the option to for it be viewed on a 1.78:1 screen, if you look at my post I also mentioned watching on "2 or 3 monitors/TVs somehow - or maybe a VR...

They could still have given the option to view those scenes in the full 5.95:1 aspect ratio though - or at least closer to it. It would likely look too small if viewed on one normal 1.78:1 TV screen...

Imdb says it was shot 2.35:1 and with some scenes at 5.95:1. So shouldn't there be some scenes at 5.95:1 on the Blu-ray if imdb is correct, and assuming the theatrical version had a mix of 2.35:1 and...

Yes but isn't that going to be a problem for believability for the boxing scenes in 120 fps 4K 3D if it's actors - won't people see that the boxing isn't real more easily - at least if it's shot in...

I wouldn't really say Dolby Cinema/Dolby Vision is the film's native format - though it was shot with the Sony CineAlta F65 which can capture a higher dynamic range. They did a Dolby Vision/HDR grade...

120 fps at 360 degree shutter isn't totally blur free though (it's around 8.33 milliseconds). Normal 24 fps film (at the normal 180 degree shutter) is 2.5x the blur though.
Sometimes the fight...

I don't really get the need for that. He used to say he wanted "increased realism, higher frame rates" (and I believe wanted reduced flicker and strobing) and when someone creates a film like that,...

The original 120 fps footage had a 360 degree shutter. For the 24 fps version they are blending 3 frames into 1 to create a "216 degree shutter" (note: the link below incorrectly says the 120 fps...

It's not about the 2K version, it's that in the 4K 120 fps version he wants certain scenes to have different "emotion"/looks (or less clear/more like 60 fps look than 120 fps).Basically what he calls...

Surely they were limited to 5 properly synthesised shutters at 24 fps (120/24=5). Another site said they used 72 degree slices (360/5=72) - I assume for the 24 fps version (ie. so they could only...

True the hobbit hasn't been released (yet) in HFR on Blu-ray/UHD Blu-ray. But perhaps with Ang Lee's film it will be easier since 120 fps can be converted much easier to UHD Blu-rays 60 fps - or...
