Objective technical quality assessment of stereoscopic movies is crucial for timely detection and correction of potentially problematic scenes in order to decrease the fraction of viewers who might experience visual discomfort. Despite the prior advancements in the field, some recently released movies still contain scenes with significant technical issues. For instance, the movie Mermaid, which grossed over $500 million in box office, contains both artifacts common for natively captured S3D content and artifacts specific to 2D-to-3D conversion. In addition to previously described technical quality metrics this paper introduces our improved approach to measuring sharpness mismatch between stereoscopic views, as well as a detailed analysis of 10 recently released Chinese S3D movies using 7 different quality metrics. The analyzed 10 movies are compared with general stereoscopic movie quality trends evaluated on over hundred S3D movies, produced mostly in Europe and USA.
