You're spot on about the Kirk moment.
Almost as vital a part of Trek mythos as the Khhhhaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnn scene.

Plus you forget Christopher Loyd running on full blown overacting mode. "Give me Genesis!" This movie is bad but most of the Klingon related scenes are fun.

I like this movie...then again I mostly like the Trek movies that everyone hates, and the only one that I like along with everyone else is II.

This movie sucks? Seriously? It isn't the best, but it's alright if you ask me. That was the general perception, it was good but not great. And I think it was PG.

I don't hate this one, but that's because it is so unmemorable. Other than the "Klingon Bastards" line and super-hammy Christopher Lloyd, there's simply nothing notable about it. It doesn't straight up suck like 1 or 5, and it certainly doesn't rule like 2 or 4. It's just there.

I like the part where Kirk kicks Christopher Lloyd off the cliff..."I've had (kick) just about (kick) enough (kick) of you."(kick), or something like that.

Afraid I'll have to disagree with you as well. Even with the faulty logic of the even/odd situation, 3 is the best of the worst. Perhaps the worst thing you really could say about it is that it can't stand on its own, since it picks up where Star Trek II left off, and serves as a transition to the more light-hearted Star Trek IV. In that "trilogy," it is the weakest one, but not unenjoyable. First time we saw the kick-ass Klingon Bird-of-Prey, first time the other main crew got to do something other than take orders, and overall, an enjoyable film.

I wasn't very big on III but it wasn't all that awful, just kind of... filler.

I may not be the best person to talk to about the movies though, I always disliked IV and kind of liked V. Mostly because IV was all about Saving the Whales which made me gag while V was kind of like an extended bad campy episode of the old TV series.

IV was the one where they saved the whales? And that's one of the POPULAR ones? Hoo boy. It could easily have been the Mork and Mindy movie with some of those jokes about how the advanced man survives in the 1980s man's world.

Star Trek IV is a parody of the things it encompasses, and that's why it was popular, and a good film. It's not meant to be taken seriously. Unlike the first one, which tries to take itself too seriously, or that fifth one, which is fucking bonkers. But then again, I'm more of a Next Generation guy myself.

That's also why it's so bad. It's a parody of itself, which is an okay enough concept for an episode but not for a movie. We might as well have a movie equivalent of those episodes where someone gets trapped in the hologram set to THE NAPOLEONIC WARS or THE BEUBONIC PLAGUE. I was even willing to accept it when I thought it was the sixth in the series, but the fourth? So much for it being a universe of endless possibilities; it's only the fourth movie in the series and the writers decide science fiction fans want to see a movie about the 80's.

3 Things to love about this movie:

The aforementioned Kirk Lear moment
The whole crew (except for Spock) goes rogue to rescue a friend.
THEY BLOW UP THE ENTERPRISE TO GET AWAY! Back in the day this was like Optimus Prime dying, or Duke going into a coma because of the bad reaction of Optimus Prime dying, or Spock dying.

Seriously, this movie is like Empire Strikes Back. Only there's no hands getting chopped off (unless you count David's death), and there's no finding out the bad guy is your father. But it's the entire ending where "oh yeah, there's going to be another coming." The three of them (II, III, IV) rule as a whole, like the Back to the Future movies. On top of that, David's death helps fuel the plot for VI.

I forgot this was the first movie where they destroyed the Enterprise! It seems like they did it almost every movie thereafter.

I can't remember the exact dialogue between Shat and Iggy, but my rifftrax moment went something like this:

Shat: In case you hadn't noticed, the planet is destroying itself!

Iggy: Yes! Exhilirating, isn't it?
