Rich Copley: High-frame-rate 'Hobbit' gets two thumbs up

The Hobbit is the first feature film to be released in high frame rate, in which the film is shown at twice the standard speed of 24 frames a second, which has been the industry standard for about 80 years. The technology was developed nearly three decades ago but languished in specialty projects until Peter Jackson embraced it for his return to Middle-earth.
