Lord of the Rings trilogy has been milestone in Peter Jackson’s avant-garde carrier, his next movie, The Hobbit, which is a prequel to its blockbuster LOTR series has ignited criticism by all and sundry over its unconventional 48FPS rate.
Usually, the frame rate in movies is kept at 24FPS (Frames Per Second) to give it a cinematic feel, but Jackson’s upcoming film uses a FP that makes Ang Lee say “It takes time (to adopt this new technology). It sounds like a good idea, but I’m a little skeptical.”
When the 10 minute preview of the movie was screened at CinemaCon last week many critics attacked on the director saying that he has stripped the filmic characteristics and it feels like they are looking at the sound stage and props, which is uneasy.
Beside all the rebuking, King Kong maker seemed confident about the new tech and said that he cannot comment on this all. He added , “Just like I can’t say anything to someone who doesn’t like fish. You can’t explain why fish tastes great and why they should enjoy it.”
