    I thought I would see if there is interest in a group movie for this and what dates work best for people. :)

    And I ate off of the Hobbit menu at Denny's.

    I had the Frodo Pot Roast off the Hobbit menu, and it was pretty good.

    Looks like the movie is showing in several different formats: Real 3D, Real 3D (High Frame Rate), and "classic" which means no 3D. The movie times aren't listed for the 22nd yet, but they are for the 20th, which is pretty close.

    I'm for the regular feature, but will bow to the group's democratic wishes.

    I'm fine with the no frills version. It's cheaper.

    I voted for the Continental because it's got the giant screen. But I'd also vote for the Harkins if that's easier for people.

    I'm interested in seeing it in the high frame rate since that's all the rage right now. Although not necessarily 3D. If there's a 2D high frame rate version, that's what I vote for.

    Alas, I didn't see that as an option. I hear the high frame rate is hard/awkward to watch. Any reviews on it?

    Whaa? No babysitter that night?

    I haven't seen any. I'm just curious what it looks like since it's a new thing, and since films have been shot at 24 fps since the 1920s. Films are supposed to be at 24, but now all of a sudden we've got "high frame rate" 48 fps as an actual "upgrade" and I just want to see it for myself on a quality film before I decide that it's garbage. :p

    So many people these days buy their HDTVs and use the 240Hz video smoothing filter to make everything look more "realistic". Well, a film isn't supposed to look "realistic" - that's why they shoot films in 24 fps, not 240 fps. [/rant]

    Well it's a 3 hour movie and since we are doing it at continental or harking it will be an 1 1/2 drive for us each way which will be a babysitter for 6 hours not including the other hour or so of waiting in line. ;). I just don't like to have Someone have to watch the girls for 7-8 hours. Thats a really long day for them. We might try to see it closer to home. ;)

    You guys have fun though let me know how you like it in the special formats.

    You make a valid argument, but I still don't like it.
