Why Is The Hobbit Making Film Goers Physically Ill?!?!

| Filed under: Film FlickersBookz

And it is NOT because of the plot!

Or at least we are like 89% positive that it isn't because of the plot.

Some cinema lovers were granted a sneak peek at the new and hopeful December blockbuster, The Hobbit, but many left with mixed, slightly sick feelings afterwards. No, LITERALLY!

According to reports, the film's 48-frames-per-second tech triggered nausea in more than one moviegoer!

Here was how some described feeling after seeing the movie:

"My eyes cannot take everything in, it's dizzying. Now I have a migraine."

"I left loving the movie but feeling sick"

"You have to hold your stomach down and let your eyes pop at first to adjust. This is not for wimps."

OK, wait. How do you make your eyes pop? We'll try it right now, and — oh gawd!!! Oh no!!! Get it back in!!! For the love of all that is–phew! It is OK everybody! We are GOOD.

Well, at least it seems like the actual movie is pretty decent! Bring some ginger ale with ya when you go see this flick — it definitely seems like you are going to need it!!!

    I saw The Hobbit this weekend in it's 48 frames version and did not get sick at all. It was very visually appealing. In fact I was surprised how I didn't even get the 3D headache that I normally get. I was fortunate enough to stay after for a q & a with Peter Jackson and learned that most people (80% of theatres do not have 48 frames capability) will see the film in the normal 24 frames per second. FYI.
