Was it mentioned up-thread that this (supposed) arcing could be artifacts from the 3D conversion process? Even in 2D (best way to see STID, IMO), you could tell where there was a "3D type" scene (like the "warp trails", etc.), as it would skew things visually.
They would follow the same path either way; 2D images become 3D only by slightly offsetting the image a couple of degrees where the filter on the opposite eye will see it in a slightly different position.
