I think the issue is the software (films & games) and not the set-up. As lots of folks have mentioned, the trend these days seems to be away from having things pop out and fly into your face (which is a shame IMO). The last few films I've watched, Step Up 3D, Saw 3D, and Resident Evil Afterlife generally seem to stop short of really flying out into your face (I hope this isn't a precautionary measure by the studios to prevent gripes from those who have crosstalk issues on their displays).
What titles have you tried out?
If you have a PS3, Superstardust hd is a great game to demo. When your ship blows up, it explodes out of the screen. Despicable Me has some good pop out stuff in the credits as I recall, and Warners' two IMAX Sea Blu-Rays have some moments where the fish extend beyond the screen. I'm sure there are other examples out there...
One of the best pop out examples I've found is an old field sequential dvd, IMAX SOS Planet. There are a few scenes that even in lower resolution seem to float far out of the screen. I think it may be playing on some of the on-demand or 3D channels, but it has no Blu-Ray 3D release as yet.
