Providing the screen is properly callibrated I can watch 3D just fine, I just prefer not to unless it's a movie like Tron Legacy where it actually contributes.
So when I'm giving the chance between 2D and 3D I will most likely go for 2D.
Thankfully our local theatre _always_ plays the 2D version the first week after the release day. It can be a bit tricky to go in the first week, but generally I manage :)

Sometimes I think that only Tron Legacy and Avatar deserved 3D, although some kiddie movie benefited from me - I mean the Mysterious Island and "How to train your dragon"!

How to Train your Dragon is being given the most epic 3-d effects ever! (Kind of. They're doing an 'arena spectacular'.)

It was pretty fabulous on Coraline too actually. I saw that in 3D as it was the only available option and I really wanted to see that movie in theatre. I have no regrets :)

I was disappointed by John Carter, but then I knew I would be. I grew up reading my dad's old dog eared copies of Edgar Rice Burroughs' martian chronicles, amongst others (also loved the Tarzan, Carson of Venus, and Pellucidar books) and this is once again a case of way too many things being changed from the original. They took concepts from all 11 of the martian books, which I don't have a problem with, and then COMPLETELY changed the conflict of the story and the history of Barsoom, which I do have a problem with. I get that some of the changes were due to ERB being a product of his time, I mean, the first book of the Martian Chronicles, A Princess of Mars was published in the 1911 after all. It is sexist and racist, because that is what the writing was like back then. But the changes just went too far.

Though I am peeved by people that mention how many of the elements of the story had been 'done before in Star Wars' or something similar, since it is actually the other way around...

Well, it's mixed isn't it? Some people really liked it, some people really hated it. But that seems to me to be most films are like that. The Guard was the same. Everybody loved it, everybody hated it. Tinker Tailor, you know. A lot of people love it, a lot of people it's not their cup of tea."
