Quite a controversial subject.

I, on the other hand, agree wholeheartedly with Mike Most that 30 fps
is closer to a 'video' look and feel, and in most cases wish that the
few thousand miles of film I've transferred for NTSC at 30 had instead
been designed for transfer at 24.  Perhaps the exceptions were those
scenes with faster panning or closeup objects crossing the frame.
