I could be wrong but I think I read somewhere that the conversion process for I, Robot involved human labor for the first frame in a given scene and the computer extrapolated from there for the rest of the scene. I own I, Robot and while it's hardly a reference quality title, I do think some of the scenes were improved by the 3D, especially the destruction of the house, the shots in the robot warehouse and the final action sequence. Depth oscillated quite a bit and the 3D did have that pop-up book effect but to my eyes (and different people have different tolerances for this stuff) I still don't think it was worthless.
Also while Wolverine and Iron Man (and Man of Steel while we're at it) were worthless conversions, Star Trek had some nice sequences to it, the space jump from the Enterprise to the Vengeance probably being the best. The general depth was on the conservative side (a problem with far too many 3D films, native and converted) but it still had its moments.
