Ah, youth. The days when you reveled in your dorm room and feasted on delicacies like hair dryer-warmed pizza or ramen gently braised over a light bulb. Your bank account might've been empty, but you still managed to feed your soul with the deepest of lessons: Money isn't everything.
And you weren't alone when enlightenment struck. Since Hollywood's golden age, plenty of movies that had hard-knock openings later blossomed into beloved cinematic staples or legit cult classics. Here are just a few, in all their flop-to-favorite glory.
'It's a Wonderful Life' (1946)
Unthinkable as it seems, "It's a Wonderful Life" was not having a very wonderful life at all in 1946. Though award season was kind to the movie, audiences just weren't feeling its darker themes, and Rko Pictures wasn't feeling the money -- "Life" lost about $525,000 at the box office.
Ultimately, this James Stewart-flavored slice of Americana owes »

Home Video fans have a lot to look forward to as Paramount Home Entertainment releases a variety of Star Trek material this year. First up and arriving Tuesday, just days after its 34th anniversary is Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Director’s Cut. This is the first time director Nicholas Meyer’s version of the now-classic film is available on Blu-ray.
There’s little left to say about just how good the film is and looking back, we can easily see the affection both cast and crew put into the production. There was a gamble in bringing in Harve Bennett to produce and Meyer to direct only because neither had been a part of Trek previously and Paramount needed the film to be a major success to salvage the franchise.
Thankfully, Bennett understand the genre and Meyer was a gifted novelist and filmmaker so got down to the core elements. »

Tony Black on the original of Wells vs. The Ripper…
It’s been quite the week for time travel TV shows, as first NBC’s Timeless dropped a trailer (and if that show could have more cliches, I’d love to know how), the announcement that Jeremy Carver has jumped from the good ship Supernatural to head up a TV version of Dennis Quaid/Jim Caviezel 2000 thriller Frequency (I know, you’ve never heard of it, but don’t worry), and now the trailer for Time After Time has landed on ABC. Anyone who’s seen it will understand the concept is simply thus: Hg Wells actually invented that time machine he wrote about *in* The Time Machine and when it’s knicked by his mate, none other than the world’s most infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper, Wells must follow him forward in time to the present day »

I just finished reading my buddy Johnny O’s column about the currently ubiquitous genre of time travel – and by the way, Johnny O, one of my favorite movies is Time After Time as well, which, by the way, was directed by Nicholas Meyer. On the strength of this he got to direct Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, thus reviving the franchise both on the big and small screens.
St has had some great time-travel stories – “Tomorrow is Yesterday” in the first season, and of course “The City on the Edge »

The final big screen outing for the original crew, we take a look back at Star Trek 6...
Despite my personal opinions, the reception to Star Trek V: The Final Frontier was nothing short of disastrous. A Razzie for Worst Picture, derision across the board and enough fallout to kill the career of producer Harve Bennett, and stop William Shatner from ever directing another movie. But Star Trek: The Next Generation fortunately found its feet not long after, and the franchise survived. But what of the ageing original cast? They were unwanted, unloved, too old, and too much of a financial risk. Gene Roddenberry, in rapidly failing health, was using what was left of his clout as Next Generation showrunner (even if the day to day running of the show was something of a power vacuum due to said failing health) to try and get his Starfleet Academy story made. »
Paris — In a key sales and door-opening strategic move, Wild Bunch TV has sold exclusive first-run, first-season Svod rights to “Medici: Masters of Florence” – co-created by Frank Spotnitz (“The X-Files,” “The Man in the High Castle”) and starring Dustin Hoffman and Richard Madden (“Game of Thrones”) – to Zive, the newly launched VOD service of Sfr Play, part of Patrick Drahi’s Altice Group. Deal takes in France, Luxembourg and French-speaking Belgium.
Crucially, Wild Bunch and Zive also now envisage broadening their partnership, notably to include future original series initiated by Zive, Zive and Wild Bunch TV said in a Wednesday press statement. That signals that Altice looks set to get into the premium TV drama business as a buyer, investor and originator. Zive will drive into “exclusive first-run original series, starring French and European talents,” company said Wednesday.
Licensing pact is a pioneering deal for both companies. Launching Sept. 2015, Wild Bunch TV, »

There's warriors like Christopher Lloyd's Kruge in "Star Trek III: The Search For Spock," and then there are talky villains like Khan in both "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" (Ricardo Montalban) and "Star Trek: Into Darkness" (Benedict Cumberbatch). And then, of course, you have talky warriors like Christopher Plummer's Chang in "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country."For Krall, a new villain brought to "Star Trek: Beyond" by Idris Elba, the Enterprise is going head-to-head with someone who is pure warrior. And it won't be good for her crew."What's interesting about him is that he has a real beef with what the Enterprise stands for," Elba recently told Entertainment Weekly's Darren Franich. "Krall's a character who's deeply steeped in hatred in my opinion, a well-earned hatred for the Federation."In »
