Scott can finally talk about "The Hobbit: The Desoluation of Smaug." It's crazy because there are over 200 different versions with different languages, high frame rate, 3D, IMAX, Dolby Atmos, and more. There's always the option to watch it in 2D, too. Scott saw it in HFR 3D. Even then, you still have the choice between Real D, IMAX3D, and Dolby3D. Scott says that high frame rate is the way to see it. HFR looks really sharp, less like film, and more like video. A lot of people object to it, saying it looking too real takes you out of the movie. 3D fans, however, say it improves the 3D experience. The downside is that Peter Jackson succumbed to the temptation to fling things at the viewer, and he said it took him out of the experience.

Scott says that the HFR presentation is more consistent this time around. To find it in HFR, visit HFRMovies.com to find the nearest theater.
