Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn: High Frame Rate, And Why It’s Essential To This Film

The start of a brand new method of theatrical exhibition is here, as 120 FPS / 4K 3D is making its debut with Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. While some aren’t a big fan of the format, we have some s

Opening to Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk 2017 4K Ultra HD

Release Date: February 14, 2017
Here’s the order:
1. Sony Pictures Home Enteratinment logo
2. 4K Ultra HD promo
3. 4K Ultra HD Menu
4. Rated R MPAA Screen
5. FBI Anti-Piracy Warning/Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Screen
6. National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center Screen

NOTE: This is the first 4K release in general features HFR at 4K 60fps. Unfortunately due to the specs I have unable to record at 60fps, this is the best I can go for (and not even resolves the motion blur occurs in a Sony/TriStar Pictures logo as does not natively goes into movement itself. Same with the rest of the opening logos where it actually encoded in standard 24 fps).

I Saw Three Versions of Gemini Man In One Day: A 60 FPS Vlog

Clickbait Title: Two Will Smiths? You Won’t Believe What Happens Next!

I had to go home and take a nap in between viewings because the 3D HF DBOX UltraAVX Experience™ was just that draining.

Presented in 60fps because I’ve fallen victim to my own weird quirks of replicating carious elements of a film in the videos I make about those films. In the last two days I’ve had a bigger existential crisis about the narrative value of HFR than the characters had about being clones/cloned. I broadly agree with the sentiment that audiences can and will acclimate to HFR as they watch more of it, but that’s definitely never going to happen if it all looks like this. I can settle in and feel comfortable and normal watching HFR footage of my own creation, like this vlog, but Gemini Man resisted that at every turn. Everything looked bad, sped up, and cheap. Ang Lee seems to have decided that a “real” explosion looks like a firework, with a bunch of sparks in the mix, because sparks are really easy for the brain to track in HFR, so they look neat. But I couldn’t ever get past it looking “neat”. It was like watching stock footage or a tech demo for two hours. There’s no attempt at using the frame rate to enhance the emotional state, it’s just “turn it up to 11 and leave it there” which makes the experience just tiring.

Guided Wim Hof Method Breathing

!! Don’t do the breathing exercises in a swimming pool, before going underwater, beneath the shower, or piloting any vehicle. Always practice sitting or lying down in a safe environment. Tinnitus symptoms may appear as a result of pushing too forcefully during the breathing exercise. If this happens, take a step back in your future practice, it’s important to increase gradually, not forcefully !!

This Breathing Bubble is an audiovisual guide that helps you maintain rhythm and pace during your breathing sessions. Simply watch the bubble as it expands and contracts, and follow with your breath. You’ll hear Wim breathe alongside you, and entrancing background sounds help tune out your surroundings, allowing you to focus on nothing but your breath. Want to know what's new at Hasbik? Go to
