3-D Super Bowl commercials underwhelm when it comes to 3D effects

We got the Monsters vs. Aliens trailer, the SoBe lizards and the Chuck promo right after the first half and none of them held a candle on a 61" big screen in HD to the snake demo in full screen mode on a 24" monitor when it came to the 3D effects.

Please note, I'm only commenting on the 3D effects and not the commercials themselves. I thought the SoBe commercial was OK and it made me laugh (and there were some noticeable 3D effects, especially in terms of depth), Monsters vs. Aliens is one of a few movies I'll actually watch in the theater this year and as for Chuck, I might be a little too biased towards Yvonne Strahovski, but I thought that promo had the best effect in terms of stuff popping out of the screen.

None of it held a candle to Bruce Springsteen's halftime show, but the very brief earlier promo of the Chuck 3-D episode, featuring Chuck (and Sarah) in 1-D was cute.
