Q: How many times do we see Taylor Lautner shirtless in 'Breaking Dawn'?
A: Actually ... there's been a last second change of plans. We are instead discussing the new George Clooney movie, 'The Descendants.'
Q: Wait, why aren't you answering questions about 'Breaking Dawn'?
A: After watching all four Twilight movies in one day and writing four separate liveblogs of each, for the life of me, I just can't discuss those movies anymore.
Q: Your intro paragraph is very confusing.
A: I had already written the intro for 'Breaking Dawn' and was too lazy to change it.
Q: But all of my questions are questions about 'Breaking Dawn.' You can't just change this all at the last second.
A: Look, just ask the questions that you have and tweak them for 'The Descendants.' Trust me, it will be fine.

Q: How beautiful is George Clooney's wedding in 'The Descendants'?
A: George Clooney plays Matt King, a man who has been married quite some time, so we don't see his wedding on screen.
Q: Is 'The Descendants' still set in the depressing town of Forks, Washington?
A: 'The Descendants' takes place in Hawaii. And, strangely enough, Hawaii comes off as very depressing.
Q: Because of all of the vampires?
A: No, it's just that I've never seen a movie in which Hawaii looks so depressing and run down.
Q: Does George Clooney transform his wife into a vampire, as was the plan in the previous 'Descendants' movie.
A: There is no previous 'Descendants' movie. Also, it's unknown if George Clooney has the power to transform someone into a vampire. Regardless, it's probably too late because his wife is in a coma.
Q: Do George Clooney and his wife have a beautiful honeymoon together?
A: Even before his wife suffered an injury in a terrible boating accident, causing her coma, the honeymoon was definitely over. As it turns out, Matt King's wife has been cheating on him.

Q: Is there a dramatic showdown between the two?
Q: During the showdown, does Brian Speer change into his alternative form of a ... real estate agent?
A: I won't spoil the moment, but Brian Speers must use many guises to conceal what he did from his wife (Judy Greer).
Q: Are you on Team Matt King or Team Brian Speer?
A: What kind of a question is that? Seriously, are you an adult?
Q: Did George Clooney struggle over the fact that he secretly murdered serial killers in the 1920s for their blood?
A: If he is, it's not shown on screen. Though, he does struggle over the selling of a large piece of Hawaiian land -- land that has been in his family for generations -- to a corporate developer.
Q: Is 'The Descendants' a dark movie?
A: Considering the subject matter, it's actually a lot lighter than what was initially expected.
