God no. High framerate video literally craps all over what makes movies look like movies. Instead they start looking more like soap operas, or the behind the scenes. It's unnatural, and should be removed from all existence.
You want high framerate movies, buy yourself one of bajillion TVs that have dejudder processing that interpolates frames between frames. things like Sony's Motionflow, Samsung's Auto Motion Plus, etc. It's the same effect you see on those tvs, except more consistent in the theatres.
Sorry, that's one thing I will ALWAYS hate. Movies should be 24fps to retain their cinematic, surreal look. At the most, I'd accept 30fps for movies, if only to eliminate 2:3 pulldown cause by 60hz refresh rates on 24hz content.
48fps for movies is something I will be against until the day I die. I'm a cinema purist, and a high framerate ruins that cinematic look completely.
To be fair, I had a Samsung and I used that high framerate dejudder for video games, and even used it on CERTAIN movies that I've watched many times before. it's a cool trick, but it's just that, a trick. Not something that should ever, ever be a standard.
At least with dejudder, you can turn that option off. Even my TV has that nonsense, and I leave it off. But if Hollywood tries to cram 48fps down our throats like they do with 3D... it will be a bad day for cinema indeed.
I would love to watch IMAX without 3D, but guess what? You basically can't now. Stupid, stupid 3D.
With virtual surround, all you're doing is trading off a limited headphone's sound presentation, to one akin to a room full of speakers. You're just changing the presentaion of the sond, you're not altering the actual source.
