Is 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace' Worth Watching in 3D?

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is coming out in 3D on Feb. 10, so is it worth seeing again in theaters?

The movie is acknowledged (even by creator George Lucas) as the worst one in the film series, but I may be a sucker to watch it again since I didn't mind watching it on VHS back in the day. Although I usually skip out on watching the modified versions of the Star Wars films (even the one with CG Yoda in this film, which is welcomed), I'm interested in seeing how Lucasfilm handled the 3D effects (woe is me).

To be honest, I was more interested in seeing Lucas' Red Tails movie, but after reading the reviews (in which the movie was rated lower than the Phantom Menace), I may just wait until it comes to DVD (yeah, I don't have Blu-ray player) or just watch The Tuskegee Airmen (1995). I can't do the same for Phantom Menace in 3D, though, unless I buy a 3D TV (not likely for years!).

So, anyway, do you think The Phantom Menace is worth watching in theaters in 3D?

Below is a 2D trailer of the film. It shows the good parts and mostly leaves Jar Jar Binks out of it (he makes an appearance very briefly, but can you find him?).
