I think I've seen this phenomenon before. It's like the movie is in fastforward but it's not. I hated it and wondered why anyone would pay so much to have a movie look like that. My hdtv's/projectors are all either 720p or 1080i and I still love the way the picture looks. They can keep the fastforward look.
