I like the look, from what I see in the trailers. Will decide when I personally see it. For now it looks awesome. To me at least!

Regardless. Hats off to PJ for daring to be different and experimenting.
Slightly OT; Scorsese says all his future movies will be 3-D
Scorsese spoke at a filmmaking panel alongside director Ang Lee,
Scorsese and Lee are among a growing crop of prominent directors who claim 3-D technology is the future of filmmaking.
The 3-D craze allows filmmakers to accomplish the original goals of cinema, Scorsese said.
"The minute it started people wanted three things: color, sound and depth," Scorsese said. "You want to recreate life."
"There is something that 3-D gives to the picture that takes you into another land and you stay there and it's a good place to be," he said.
"It's like seeing a moving sculpture of the actor and it's almost like a combination of theater and film combined and it immerses you in the story more," Scorsese said. "I saw audiences care about the people more."
Scorsese compared 3-D to the rise of color movies. He said as a film student at New York University in the early 1960s, he was shocked when he heard predictions that all future movies would be filmed in color. He said anyone harboring doubts about the rising influence of 3-D technology should consider how color movies have taken over the industry.
"The technology improves so fast. Like every three months you are behind," Lee said. "The learning curve is really humongous."
I'm frankly not surprised that the establishment is slinging FUD again. I am reserving judgement until I see it and if I don't like it, I will take my ticket money to a 24fps theatre. I don't know what the big deal is. This is similar in theory to Doug Trumbull's Showscan process and that looked awesome. The future can be an unfriendly place to people who are accustomed to being comfortable. I can't wait to see it. I'll put my trust in PJ, he's always delivered in the past.
Hats off to the crazy ones. PJ, Cameron, and Lucas are daring to go where no one has gone before. Much like RED. Digital filmmaking would not be where it is today, if it were not for the vision of these guys. I look forward to being part of history.
It is my feeling that 3D films should be treated entirely differently than 2D films. 24p does not work well with 3d. It never has. Also, 3D films need to focus more on composition and light to draw the eyes of the viewer, not the shallow depth of field we are used to seeing. It's a different animal. You wouldn't put a mountain lion in a birdcage would you? It would doubtfully hold the beast.
We need to allow a different way of thinking for different mediums. I don't like the true motion looks, or high fps anything if it is 2D. I will always prefer the look of 24p in 2D, but the same rules don't apply for 3D and we need to acknowledge that and move on. Our eyes will adjust.
