I just find the phrase 'The Motion Picture' somewhat pompous and needlessly wordy.

To be fair, I appreciate that it was a different era and the term 'motion picture' was more commonly used then than it is now. But...it just doesn't work for me.
Well, look at it this way: it'd be weird to call it ST:TM instead of TMP. Then it would sound like it meant "trademark" or something.
I'm not saying I'm overly keen about 'The Movie' either. But it did work for Superman! But hey, horses for courses!
