KTVI in St. Louis reported ”The Hobbit Making Some Movie-Goers Sick” on opening night, blaming the movie’s novel 48 frames-per-second rate for giving some viewers upset tummies.
David Bratman saw The Hobbit screened in the traditional format – he says it’s the movie itself that made him sick:
I saw it in 2D, 24 fps, and I still feel as if I’ve been bludgeoned by a giant stick.
Nobody who loves the book should be wooed thereby into seeing this movie (unless, poor sods like me, they feel they have to). Nobody.
I doubt I’ll have any more to say until the bruises begin to go down.
I expect to see it in the next couple of days and will report any adverse effects…
