Ah, no. Not so much...
Can you actually show where the translation fails? Most TOS films were in the top-10 the year they we made as were Generations and First Contact.

TOS was never an ensemble piece, it was always the Kirk and Spock show and the Kirk and Spock show has always translated well to the big-screen.
They all made money, ergo studio wise, they were a sucess. Story wise, it's another matter, as we've seen here on these pages.
We've seen some people say they'd rather it be on TV. But if you look at the ratings the latest film has generated here and on other websites, I'd say it was a successful Star Trek movie with both ticket buyers and critics.

I'd say it made a successful transition from from one medium to the other, starting with The Wrath of Khan.
