Some think that a war is brewing, ready to kick off at the end of the week as Julia Roberts' Eat Pray Love faces off against Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables. Oh yes, film fans -- it's the ultimate showdown between the women and men. One film is a new romantic journey of discovery that has much of the "chick flick" standards -- woman suffers a romantic meltdown and sets off to find who she is without a man, and does ... with the help of a bunch of men. The other is a smorgasbord of retro testosterone, an action fest full of names like Lundren, Statham, Rourke, and even just a little bit of Schwarzenegger and Willis.
With the summer winding down, and these being the premiere releases of the week, a new thought is brewing: Are men or women more obsessive about movies?
