Does anyone else have trouble watching 3-d films?

I am myopic and I wear thick glasses. Recently, I tried to watch a 3-d film at a friend's house using red-green glasses, only to find the experience very stressful.
I have watched polarised 3-d in a theatre and enjoyed it - the effect looked real and didn't stress my eyes. But watching this film with the red-green glasses was very straining on my eyes, and I often found the images very difficult to see - not at all blurry (as they would be without my glasses), but jerky and poorly connnected, and often just going flat and red or flat and green. I have also had problems watching one of the new 3-d televisions, where I just saw two images instead of a three-dimensional one.
Is this just me? Is it my glasses? I have also never been able to see the picture in a Magic Eye when wearing glasses, though I have seen them easily when wearing contacts.
