Avatar is a great example of 3D depth, but not very intense pop out. With that said, there's a lot of instances where Avatar extends beyond the screen, but only a few inches, six inches to a foot at the very most. Maybe you were just expecting it to come right out of the screen toward you? There's maybe one or two exciting moments, but for the most part, that's not Avatar. Even when it's just subtle though, I can distinguish what's actually popping out of the screen from the depth inside the screen very easily.
