What's your take on shooting film?

Various features switched from film to digital for the next sequel e.g. The Hunger Games. Shot on both ARRICAMs and ARRIFLEX 235. For The Hunger Games: Cating Fire, they still shot on film. This time ARRIFLEX 435, Panavision Millenium XL2 and IMAX (MSM 9802). The last two parts Mockingjay Pt. 1+2 were shot all the way digitally on ALEXA XT and ALEXA XT Plus.

I was just googling the prices of 235 and 435. They seem affordable compared to the IMAX cameras Christopher Nolan keeps destroying...
