I've only seen the latest one in theaters. I was a combination of being too young and having parents who didn't like seeing movies in theaters.
I was ten when TUC came out and was so very excited to see it on the big screen. My nitpicky ten-year-old-brain was irritated by the reuse of the TNG warp core and transporter room but I really loved the final battle sequence and the uncharacteristic score from Cliff Eidelman. It remains my favourite movie featuring the original cast.

I like the arc of Kirk's character from TOS through TWOK, TSFS and TUC. Seeing him used up and embittered really felt real and right: an old man weighed down by all the sacrifices he made for 'king and country.'
Some say that they're not really gone, so long as you remember them.
All we know is, we've lost two legends.
