Re: whats your rank of TOS and TNG films?

Im surprised so many people rate The Voyage Home so high and TMP so low. They are the complete opposites of Trek, one a topical comedy the other a true Sci-Fi film. That being said here is my list
Because TVH is an enjoyable, feel-good movie that's compulsively watchable and always leaves you smiling, while TMP is a worthy effort that's perhaps not as much fun to rewatch. I respect TMP, but seldom feel compelled to watch it again, whereas I always get sucked into TVH whenever I stumble onto it on TV.

The way I see it, they're both "true" STAR TREK films in the same way that "The Changeling" and "The Trouble with Tribbles" are both Trek.

(To be fair, I actually rewatched TMP the other day, for first time in ages, and it held up better than I remembered. But then I watched TVH and TUC again and, yeah, they're both much more engaging.)
