For the past two weeks, "300" has been the box office champion, easily defeating its competition. However, even the toughest competitor has problems when it is up against a multitude of foes. This weekend, it faces no less than six newcomers.
Back in the 80's and early 90's, we knew the characters of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The last we heard from them was in 1993 with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (ignoring a short-lived run on TV in 1997-1998). Now, it's 2007 and the heroes on the half-shell are going by the name TMNT. Was the world really clamoring for another ninja turtle movie?
If I had to pick a single movie to see this weekend, it would be Mark Wahlberg's Shooter. Yeah, we've seen this movie before (like last year's The Sentinel with Michael Douglas), but the reviews I've seen make me interested. Our Featured Critic liked it, and that's often good enough for me!
Also opening this week are The Last Mimzy, Pride, The Hills Have Eyes 2, and Reign Over Me. I think that "300" has its work cut out for it. Not because any one of these movies could take it on in a fair match, but rather that all six combined should segment the audiences enough that it will be difficult to keep its momentum.
