There is a lot more to 3D than pop outs.

Fully Agree.
But who will not be impressed by realistic Pop-out effects if a 3D movie can offer us

I am not impressed by pop outs. I have seen way too many cheesy pop out just for the effect of having a pop out. I like 3D because everything looks more realistic, not for the cheesy effects.

Isn't it funny, that modern CGI effect fest 2-D flat movies use these kind of effects all the time, but as soon as a 3-D movie does, people complain they are gimmicky?

Depth is what attracts me to stereoscopic movies, but a good off-the-screen gimmick can be effective if used in the proper context. (I hate the term "pop-out" for some reason I can't explain).

I think the 1950's 3-D movies got the balance right for the most part. They weren't afraid to use gimmicks at times, but for the most part didn't go overboard. In the 1980's wave, the movies were ALL about pointing sticks at the camera. The modern ones avoid gimmicks almost entirely except for the occasional CGI debris from a CGI explosion. The conservative use of depth compared to their older counterparts doesn't help either.

Side note to Hollywood: CGI fire and explosions look exactly like what they are. Blow stuff up for real again!
