More than likely, complaints of ghosting/cross-talk due misalignment of the fpr on LG sets contributed to the decision for them to discontinue 3D. My understanding is that the passive 3D technology that LG employed was actually quite inexpensive to implement. But the resulting complaints because of it (returns/complaints/warranty calls) was probably what drove LG execs to get rid of it - I'm sure they thought it wasn't worth the trouble, just to satisfy the handful of 3D enthusiasts out there.
I have watched a LOT of 3D movies on my LG 55UH8500. Dr Strange was by far the worst, but the majority of the 3D I have watched on the TV have been very good (nothing beats SW:The Force Awakens; Gravity and Dredd are also great in 3D). So I wouldn't place the blame on LG as much as the poor media release of this title
the reviews on the LG 2016 sets show good reviews on the 3D of the set
no need to introduce conspiracy theories about 3D, it's simply LG following the industry trend of removing 3D from their sets, since every other TV manufacturer dropped 3D going forward, as they feel 3D is dead in the home. they are full into 4K with HDR
hell, even the 4k/UHD media spec doesn't even support 3D, and unlike the original blu-ray spec which had 3D added afterwards, 3D is not expected to be added to UHD media spec
so instead of 3D we get 4k, 4k w/HDR10, 4k w/HDR10+, 4k w/Dolby Vision, 4k w/ Technicolor, etc
