Duplicity vs. The International: How Should You Allocate Your Clive Owen Budget?

We know how you're feeling. Your wallet seems a little lighter than it used to. As a responsible consumer, you're trying to figure out ways to cut down on your adventures with disposable income. You've already switched from fancy espresso drinks to regular ole drip coffee (the horror!), and you've already stopped buying CDs (we're pretty sure there's a correlation there), but now you've come to the realization that you can't possibly afford to see two Clive Owen movies in the span of six weeks. Because Vulture is nothing if not cost conscious, we've decided to channel our inner Suze Orman and help outline some of the key differences between Duplicity (opening March 20) and The International (opening this weekend) for you.
