Deep Space Nine would never have been made if Star Trek was only movies. And while people seem to like the new Star Trek shows, they decided to go to the Kirk (-ish) era for their new shows?
Only for non-animated shows and then only sorta. Lower Decks is TNG/DS9 timeframe. Prodigy is post Voyager. Picard is post Voyager. Discovery started in pre-Kirk era but is now far future after season 2. Strange New Worlds is the one really going all in on the Kirk-ish era and with the heaviest TOS feel.

I forgot about Picard, but that relies on a specific named character. And yeah Discovery went to the future but it sure started in the Kirk adjacent era.

I guess you've never seen Vampires Kiss...

Not only have I seen every single movie by Nic Cage, I believe that his oeuvre should be required teaching at all levels of school.

So what would the curriculum look like exactly?

It would look .... awesome.

(It would be roughly separated into the following categories)

Cage 101- Introduction to Awesome.
A course concentrating on "popular" Cage movies, starting with his action output in the 90s and continuing on to the National Treasure series, with some occasional pieces pulled from his lengthy popular career such as City of Angels and Moonstruck,

Cage 201- Nic Cage is Bob Denver on Acid Playing the Accordion.
A further examination of Nic Cage as auteur, examining his numerous critcally acclaimed method roles, from the 80s (Vampire's Kiss) to the 90s (Leaving Las Vegas) to the '00s (Adaptation) to now (Mandy, Pig).

Cage 301- We Released Ourselves On Our Own Recognizance.
Next, we look at the many films that Nic Cage has graced us with that we love- from Raising Arizona to Lord of War to The Weather Man.

Cage 401- MAXIMUM CAGE.
Finally, we look at the films that define a man, a generation .... a CIVILIZATION. Advanced studies and a seminar level course. Films such as The Wicker Man, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Drive Angry, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Face/Off, and Deadfall.

Graduate Studies in Paychecks and Cameos
Whether it's "Hey, is that Nicolas Coppola?" (Fast Times at Ridgemont High?) or "Did you really need that paycheck that bad?" (Left Behind) some graduate-level studies will complete the study of the GREATEST ARTIST OF OUR, OR ANY generation.

I do like your class titles, i do indeed.
 

No mention of Spider-Man or Batman so far even though they’re the most re-booted franchises in recent memory? Maybe because in both the latest instalments were actually pretty good movies?
