once again to flay this tired horse, the benefits may be apparent on
non-fiction, reality-based images, but for me the clear winner for
story-telling is 24 fps.

personally, I find increases in temporal resolution, for theatrical
projection of features of fiction, not to be worthwhile.

for immediate, news-gathering types of images, increased framerates
will be valuable.  For feature films, I prefer 24.  30 and higher
framerates evoke video origination for me.
