Which is better, RealD 3D or Dolby 3D?

When you go to a cinema to watch a 3D film the two main 3D systems you would find are RealD 3D, who have the most number of cinemas, and Dolby 3D. Which do you think gives a better 3D experience?

I skimmed through that link that was posted above... there is way too much info there. Can someone sum it up and just give us the dot points on which is best??? I have 2 cinemas near me, each with different 3d setups, I would rather go to the cheap cinema which has the Dolby setup where u return the glasses after the showing, than the expensive cinema chain that uses the other type... But if there is a different in quality then I am very curious as to what it is

3D glasses can damage you eyes and the effects are not worth it!

Neither... The 3D movies I have seen at the cinemas are total garbage in 3D... The effects in 3D actually RUINED my enjoyment of the movies, rather than enhance them, and I have now seen 4-5 movies in 3D... The only movie I actually thought was good in 3D was Despicable Me, an animation movie!
