If people cannot see the difference between a regular 2D movie and a 3D movie which has depth and an image that goes back beyond the wall on which a TV is mounted, they must be blind! The difference is clear to see for everybody but the 3D visually impaired minority.
I am not against pop-out when its done sparingly for effect and appropriately. Avatar is a good example. The floaty things were out of the screen whereas the forrests went back into it. That was fine and Ocean Wonderland was spectacular but people spitting or poking me with objects in my face! No thank you!
When people care more about pop-out than depth when in the real world pop-out is a lot less prevelant that depth, I think something is getting lost somewhere. 3D should be about natural 3D as we perceive it in the real world and not just gimmicks. In my opinion 3D is in real trouble if people don't really care about depth as much as they do about pop-out.
