New to Blu-Ray/DVD – June 24, 2014 – “300: Rise of an Empire,” “Winter’s Tale” @300MovieUK

300-rise-of-an-empire-blu-ray-cover-jpg300: Rise of an Empire – This was a fun prequel/sequel to “300” carried by a steady performance by Sullivan Stapleton (“Gangster Squad“) and a crazed, brilliantly over the top performance by Eva Green (“Casino Royale“). It’s not high art, but it’s a lot of fun and one of the more underrated guilty pleasures of the year.

winters-tale-blu-ray-coverWinter’s Tale – Colin Farrell has been stuck on a bit of an anti-roll, seemingly cursed to star in one lackluster movie after another. His streak continues with this romance drama about a thief who tries to use his gift of reincarnation to save the woman he loves.
