As far as aesthetics I'll take film for viewing and video for managing
I think it really depends on the DP and what it is you are shooting.
In the end, I think this is best for production. People who could never dream of making their ideas happen because of costs now can spend $10,000 and make it happen. While it will certainly lead to a bunch of absolute trash, we will never see that stuff. But we will also get to see a bunch of great things that we never would have had a chance to see before.
I am curious though, what is it that you like from film that you can't get from digital (high end digital - RED/Alexa types, not lower end DSLR types)? What advantage do you see with film?
