Just my own 2 cents and opinions:
1. On a good well calibrated active set, or projector, there is NO flicker problem. Virtually ALL home theater projector setups- with a few very expensive exceptions- are active. The 3D is comfortable to watch, and great. From those of us who have these active projector theaters, I've heard no flicker complaints, period!
2. A good- and I emphasize GOOD- 3D movie is more immersive than its 2D counterpart. Given a choice between watching a good 3D movie in 1080 or watching it in 2D 4K, even with HDR, for an immersive experience, it's 3D hands down! However, I realize that some people are just uncomfortable with 3D and I get that, and respect it. I shoot and edit 3D, 4K, and 4K HDR, and that's the way I feel about it.
3.HDR 4K is just another tool but hardly a panacea and I don't feel it makes the image "pop" and feel more immersive than 3D. HDR needs to be used sparingly and will only be present in occassional scenes such as sunsets, sun peaking through clouds where there are highly contrasting foregrounds, ect, ect. Whereas, 3D is present through the entire movie. Much more of a window effect, overall. I'm presently working with a new system which is capable of creating 4K HDR timelapse and realize that I must use it sparingly and only on certain content which will have direct benefits, otherwise, it can look pretty lame.
4. For those of you who are unhappy about the fact that you must see the movie in 3D to get the Atmos sound, IMO, you're not missing anything by not having Atmos. Talk about gimmicky, Atmos is overrated, and way overhyped. Just my opinion, but I couldn't give a rat's ass about it and I've heard plenty of it at our local new state of the art IMAX theater. I've got a 7.1 channel system with 2 ceiling mounted rear speakers and, after experiencing Atmos, can find no reason to upgrade to it.
