Respectfully, I'll whine if I want to. It's largely a cheap gimmick and, for many of us, an eyestrain. I've had to take off my glasses and rub my aching and watering eyes halfway through each of the last 2 3D movies I've been to. Not exactly an enhancement of the viewing experience, and hard to suspend your disbelief when you can't see straight.
I can understand why that would be annoying, but I don't see how the technology is to blame if you have sensitive eyes. Most people never experience the kind of eyestrain you're talking about.
The problem for me is what it does to the colours in a film, it depends on the palette used but if you watch a film like the avengers it really mutes the colours (which by whipping off the glasses in the cinema is down to the plastic lens not the film itself).
