I think it's high time for people to get used to high frame rate video. The "Soap Opera Effect" seems eerily realistic because it IS MORE REALISTIC. 24-30 fps was a way to make film cheap enough to use, but just barely fast enough to make action less jerky. We don't have to do that anymore; we don't use film stock anymore. Realistic video is a GOOD thing! It's time to start working with it!
The only movie I’ve heard of that was actually filmed to use a high frame rate was Ang Lee’s “Gemini Man”. A kinda standard action movie starring Will Smith. And the thing is, it looked pretty cool! It bombed, but it looked cool. But I agree with Lee: digital is not celluloid, and we don’t need to be limited to what celluloid can do just because of movie audience nostalgia for a crappy motion format.
