Bix wrote:The sad part is that films made "the old way" will be overlooked in favor of those newer projects. It's inevitable. The majority of the younger generation consider classical music to be little more than white noise... as Dwight mentioned, they can't fully appreciate the fact that you can have an entire orchestra playing for you in the comfort of your home for very little money. Silent films, and black-and-white films, get the same flip-by-it-on-the-telly lack of attention by the current generation. And you can bet that the visually-dumbed-down movies (i.e. the 24fps of The Hobbit) will be treated much the same way in the future when the newer technology is brought into acceptability, with their flaws as distractions rather than as an integral part to the experience of watching them.

Pieces like Gustav Holst's "The Planets," Igor Stravinsky's "Le Sacre du Printemps" (The Rite of Spring), Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings," and I could go on with the list have so many layers and nuances that you can listen to them several times and each time come away with something deep and enriching. That is, if you sit back, cancel out every other distraction, put on a pair of good headphones and truly listen with eyes closed. Most people don't want to spend the time doing that, though. They're heavily into multi-tasking so music becomes background noise.
How many people have the TV running from the time they wake up til the time they go to bed and sometimes even through the night just to have the noise in the background?
In some strange way these film buffs were comforted by the blur, however their reconsideration that perhaps the 48fps is too revealing for what is being photographed is intellectually honest and permits advancement in the field of motion picture photography. This is of profound importance because this view is the truth.
There is no reason why you can’t prefer the comfort of the unreal, but declaring something to be inferior when it is clearly superior is emotional, irrational and a lie. The tech world is rife with irrational nonsense, but because of its very nature the truth generally finds its way through the smoke in time. Such is not the case in other areas of life, where damage to let’s say, our society, is not always as quickly noted as a light switch that is not connected to a real source of light, or an automobile that cannot make it to 30mph, no matter how we put the pedal to the mettle.
Greater detail and clarity may bring us closer to reality, but not closer to our desires or personal comfort. Fine! We may properly prefer a limited or editorialized view as long as we recognize it as a preference; but once we stray across the line that divides the subjective from the objective without noting that we have indeed crossed it, fantasy reigns, and fantasy can be a killer.
