Out of the Blue

I'm pretty sure today I'll make that batch of chili I mentioned the other day. I was talking with MrsBlue about possibly adding in the chili peppers gradually to have the heat level be a little less random when we recognized that we both sort of like to be surprised in this regard. Let's call it chili roulette.

It sounds like the "120Hz makes everything look like a soap opera" argument.

The fact is we are so adapted to the current standard that of course anything new is going to "look weird." Peter Jackson was right when he said people should "deal with it." If sets look like shit then that's a problem for filmmakers, not viewers.

This. If the standard FPS for movies was 48 instead of 24 and The Hobbit went with 24, people would be complaining because it looked too choppy and unrealistic. As with all things, people will eventually get used to 48 FPS if it becomes standard.
