I v. V - The Battle of Bad

But Star Trek: The Motion Picture is no prize, either. It is arguably worse than some episodes of The Original Series (though that's debatable, depending on which episode you have in mind). It is heavily cheesy in parts, and there is overacting galore.
So which movie is worse?

As for STV, the plot was terrible, more by the studio leaning on Shatner and the visual effects looked very low budget. This is a movie that looks like it had trouble when being created.

Newer fans forget that when TMP was released it was all we had. Sci Fi was still snubbed by mainstream media.
Star Wars popularity was changing the way Sci FI was portrayed. The following 10 years was quite an evolutionary process in the way stories brought to life.
TMP had it's moments both good and bad as did V.
Both movies suffered from meeting the studios strict release deadline.
I fear the 50th Anniv. movie will suffer that same issue.
Life is a constant series of adaptations. and I am adapting as fast as I can!
