Wolverine vs. John Connor

Well, not quite but something close... X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Terminator Salvation were the most anticipated movies of 2009 for me. And then they came out and turned out to be the biggest disappointment of the year. That's why I didn't even bother to write a review for them, I kept hoping they would look better at a second viewing but they didn't, not enough anyway.

Now that the nominees voting season for MTV Movie Awards has started, it looks like Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman aren't just on screen rival magicians like in The Prestige, but they also took their rivalry off screen as they are both competing in the same categories:

Best Fight:
Hugh Jackman & Liev Schreiber vs. Ryan Reynolds - 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'
Hugh Jackman vs. Liev Schreiber - 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'
Sam Worthington vs. Terminator - 'Terminator Salvation'

Best Villain:
Liev Schreiber - 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'

Best Ass Kicking Star:
Christian Bale
Hugh Jackman

Best Female Breakout Star:
Moon Bloodgood - 'Terminator Salvation'

Best Male Breakout Star:
Sam Worthington - 'Terminator Salvation'

Best Male Performance:
Christian Bale - 'Terminator Salvation'
Hugh Jackman - 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'

Global Superstar:
Christian Bale
Hugh Jackman

Best Movie:
Terminator Salvation
X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Given the teen age range of the MTV's audience, probably some Twilight saga or other stupid comedy movie will be the big winner and sweep the awards, though. If you care go vote, if you don't just forget about it and watch The Prestige.
