I have watched very few 3D movie and the worst I experienced was some eyestrain.
It had been 2D movies with shaky-cam that gave me serious headaches, the worst being Cloverfield, which I watched at a theater/pub. I don't drink, but that is the only place in town to watch a movie on the big screen for $3. After the movie was over, I turned to my left and commented to a perfect stranger, "I bet alcohol would have helped with this movie; I have a headache." He replied, "The beer didn't help." "And your friend?" "He also has a headache."
And this hasn't been limited to the silver screen. After I purchased my 46-in HDTV (predates my current 50-in), I tried watching The Blair Witch Project and found it unwatchable on that screen, again because the camera was always shaking. Now that I have a VCR/DVD player connected to a much smaller screen ... well, actually, I think I'll pass.
