People choose favorite films not just because of their face value content, but also because of what they represent to them emotionally. I can totally understand the two Therin chooses. They both represent a rebirth of Trek in the mainstream with artistic flair and grandeur.
yeah, I guess it could be looked at that way. Though I think that TWOK is a better choice if that's the reasoning, because though TMP was a box office hit, it was a critical flop and a huge disappointment, fan-wise. Had there been another movie or two like TMP, the movie series would have been in trouble.
And don't get me wrong, obviously fans can choose whatever are their subjective choices they want. It's just that it's a very dissimilar pair of movies put together.
