Shot as data on a Red Epic, and taken through DI at 2k in many flavors -- 2D, 3D, 24fps, 48fps, 35mm anamorphic, a blow-up to 70mm IMAX dual-strip 3D…
Am I missing anything?
While I didn’t find The Hobbit film to be quite as enthralling as the Rings films, it’s a high quality entertainment, and down-rezzed to Blu-ray in 3D, works beautifully.
As I mentioned in my Zero Dark Thirty piece, and will again for Lincoln, we’re very fortunate to be at a technological point where home video can beautifully replicate the full theatrical experience, and sometimes better it.
The Hobbit is one of the those perfect discs, that makes that reminds us just how lucky we are.
As a 3D experience, The Hobbit also shines, as I'm seeing no problems, and the technology just works as it should.
Wonder if there's any way to project this via Blu-ray at 48 fps?
Another reference quality disc, and at under $28 street, a steal.
