I tend to avoid 3D movies, because I don't really enjoy the experience despite having to pay a higher entrance fee.
I don't like having to put fat-rimmed glasses on top of my own delicate ones, which are annoying enough but at least I'm used to them (not sure if I'd enjoy 3D slightly more if I was wearing contact lenses).
I haven't watched a single movie yet that really needed the 3D effects and was better because of them. I have to admit that I'm generally more interested in stories and photography, not action and special effects, but I've also got this suspicion that 3D isn't really suited for fast paced action because 3D requires you to focus on certain parts of the screen while the things in the background are blurry, so if there's something moving quickly across the screen you can't focus your eyes on it quickly enough and it becomes blurry, too. So my impression is 3D might be good for impressive panorama views, but bad for quick movements and most blockbuster movies have more of the latter than the first.
The screen becomes slightly darker, and in some movies it felt to me like it was farer away and as if the picture consisted of several flat layers behind one another, not like one plastic, truly 3D image.
I have no idea if these things are connected to myopia, choosing the wrong seats in the cinema or watching the wrong movies, all I can say is that so far I have never really enjoyed the experience when I watched one in 3D and that I prefer to have the choice to watch them in 2D for a less expensive ticket.
