For me it depends...

If the film was originally shot in 3D, then I enjoy them immensely. But if the film was originally shot in 2D and then processed to create a 3D version, then no... I do not enjoy them.

I was fortunate enough to go to theaters during the mini-resurgence of 3D films back in the 80's and see these films during their theatrical runs...

  • Parasite
  • Treasure of the Four Crowns
  • Friday the 13th III in 3D
  • Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn
  • Jaws III in 3D
  • Amityville 3D
  • Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone

I was too young to see Friday III in 3D, and always heard about how great the effects were. Still holding out hope I'll catch a revival screening someday...

You and me both! I'd love to revisit these films on the big screen again.

Some conversions are very good, though. Most of them are effects heavy, so while the live action often doesn't look great with the 3D conversion, the animation effects are easily retrofitted for 3D. I've been to over 100 3D flicks.

I was just a bit too young when those '80s movies came out but would have loved to have gone to them. I have a 3D TV, though, and bought Metalstorm as one of the BDs. I also own two versions of F13 3D; have watched the anaglyph version but not the active 3D.
