Booze Revooze: A Drinker’s Skewed View of ECLIPSE

[Click here for a guide to Booze Revooze and the rating system used]

From the juiced-box and the soundtrack: The Black Keys – Chop And Chan

Ramblings: Twi-lite

"This is my Undecided pout."

Final Proof: 2 Shots

You know how you go to get drunk at a high school party and not even one thrown by cool kids whose parents are out of town but by some Christian kid in his basement where his parents promise to stay upstairs? You hope at least the punch is packing but it’s not spiked because of all the vampire wannabe’s, so there’s no booze and the only kind of action you get is sophomoric melodrama love triangles that are pointless because none of the sides are even dry humping each other. The only sex in the party is french kissing without the added touch of heavy petting and you are so far beyond these dweebs in every thought you’ve ever had, ever drink you’ve ever drunk, everything you’ve ever done that you know before you go that you have no business inflicting yourself on their poor saved souls. So yeah, Twilight: Eclipse is kinda like that sad high school party.

What do you want me to tell you? This movie is like a pink lady or other girlie cocktail: not made for me. i will say i hated this one less than i hated the previous one, New Moon, but that’s paramount to saying getting stabbed in my left eye didn’t hurt as much as being stabbed in my right eye.

"This is my Horny pout."

i’m thinking i pretty much shouldn’t be allowed to review any movie that will be on the covers of notebooks in supermarket back-to-school sale bins. Or kiddie sheets—i definitely should not be permitted to critique any film that could spawn a sheet set for a toddler’s bed. i need to remember to stay with the kind movie that would make a good tat or that you could whack off to. Something like that.

There’s just nothing cool about this movie. Nothing. The sad thing is that it’s starting to deteriorate Kristen Stewart’s acting. She was pretty decent in Into The Wild and now this third installment of Twinklight is so sugar sappy sweet that’s it’s decaying her acting chops away to nothing.

"This is my Please Shoot Me pout."

You ever see a girl act with her pout? Unbelievable. It’s like, “Here’s my sexy pout. Here’s my sad pout. Here’s my angry pout. Here’s my favorite, it’s my incredulous pout and you’re gonna see it a lot because I can’t freaking believe all the attention this crap is giving me.”

i sure as hell can’t believe it, either.

Guess what. As Dakota Fanning is still too young to know better, i’m gonna have to card her here. Nothing age inappropriate in the Bar None, yo.

Buzz Kills (Watch Out for Spoilers)

Sex: 2 Shots

Plenty of hot girls, the only problem is none of them were doing anything hot, but then again, it wasn’t entirely their fault. For example, there’s one scene where Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are all alone in the house and lying on the bed and making out with all their clothes on and Bella starts begging Ed to drive his tube stake deep into her and….he says No. He takes a pass on that and stands up to leave.

Before we get any deeper into the sexy bits, here’s a song from the soundtrack to scroll by: Sia – My Love

One of the reasons i’m being generous with my rating here is that there were 5 times we got to see Kristen Stewart’s butt (which is 20-years-old) in jeans.

Can anyone tell me why her belt is on backwards? Is this like “hip” fashion?

Apart from that, the most we get out of Bella is a lot of kissing. She’s the kissing slut in the basement closet of this freshman party. Here’s a little more than that.

There’ll be more single shots of her served up in my drawers. Scroll down for that.

Still fiercely clinging to my metaphor, we got Jessica (Anna Kendrick) as the slow friend of the party. Jessica may be the class valedictorian, but it’s gotta be pretty easy to ace your senior year when, like Anna, you’re nearly 25.

There’s single shots of her held back in my drawers as well. This means Kristen Stewart and Anna Kendrick are hanging out in my drawers together, dawg.

The other main cutie in this bad boy is Ashley Greene (23), as Alice Cullen. As impressive as her acting talents is seeing her nipple poking all the way through her thick leather coat. That’s a skill they can’t teach in theater class.

Some more single shots of her are hanging with the rest at the bottom of my drawers.

i jotted down in my notes that Victoria was hotter in this movie than New Moon. Turns out my eye for the sexy is more finely attuned than we thought because putting this post together i found out they changed actresses. Last time we had Rachel Lefevre and they switched her out for Bryce Dallas Howard (29).

Yep, still some more shots of her in the drawers.

Silken Butterflies

First off, we got Julia Jones (29) who does well in the role of smoldering Leah Clearwater; course “smoldering” is easy for her ’cause she’s smoking hot.

Second off, we got Monique Ganderton (29), stuntwoman and sexy civil war flashback vampire. She must be a good actress, she speaks with an accent and everything.

For those of you more interested in stakes than hearts, we got Robert Pattinson (24) as Edward Cullen.

Here’s Rob in the Bar None.

Rob Pattinson after the Bar None

The only line that cracked me up in the movie (OK,  the only line that cracked me up and was meant to crack me up) was when Ed sees Jacob (Taylor Lautner–18) topless and says “Doesn’t he own a shirt?”

Drink: 0 Shots

  • Bella’s dad drinks “R” beer [wtf?]
  • Some guys are drunk in an alley in a prohibition flashback
  • Negative points because there’s a high school graduation party and no one drinking alcohol. And you thought vampires hanging with werewolves wasn’t realistic…

A Smoke

Rock & Roll: ½ Shot

We got The Black Keys up above and we also got us some Florence & The Machine (who i actually first discovered in Jennifer’s Body). Apart from these two tunes, the soundtrack was pretty super lame. Don’t believe me? Take a look at this:

  1. Metric – Eclipse (All Yours)
  2. Muse – Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever)
  3. The Bravery – Ours
  4. Florence & The Machine – Heavy In Your Arms
  5. Sia – My Love
  6. Fanfarlo – Atlas
  7. Chop And Change – The Black Keys
  8. The Dead Weather – Rolling In On A Burning Tire
  9. Beck and Bat For Lashes – Let’s Get Lost
  10. Vampire Weekend – Jonathan Low
  11. Unkle  – With You In My Head (Feat. The Black Angels)
  12. Eastern Conference Champions – A Million Miles An Hour
  13. Band Of Horses – Life On Earth
  14. Cee Lo Green – What Part Of Forever
  15. Jacob’s Theme – Howard Shore

Anyway, here’s the Florence & The Machine tune:

There was some music that was not even close enough to rock to be included in the same sentence as the word “rock” at the high school graduation party.

There was also some music not as pop as the rest of the pop during the scene where southern accent vampire teaches everyone how to fight newborn vampires.

As for rock and roll action, there was a fight scene with vampires and werewolves against baby (“newborn”) vampires. Cool enough but way too short.

  1. Showing your age Al, the soundtrack if full of bands that are hot for he target audience (and with taste like that, can there really be hope for the future?).

    You carded Dakota Fanning who played Marie Currie in The Runnaways (someone who’s bedded as many groupies as Robert Plant, shot as much horse as Kieth Richards and still looked as innocent as the homecoming queen)? Harsh dude.

    Dakota Fanning, Bryce Howard, what draws good actresses to want to be in drek like this?

    • Hey brother!

      While i agree i’m not in this bomb’s target concerning music, i beg to differ that it’s because of my age. While i don’t like the pop rocks dropped here, i enjoy many contemporary metal bands (Black Label Society, Band of Skulls…and metal light like 3 Days Grace, 3 Doors Down, Shinedown…) It’s like the 80s. It’s not because the vast majority of 80s bands gave me diarrhea dry heaves that i was an old fogy. When the world wised up in the 90’s with grunge, i was there in the front of the pack…early adoptin’.

      Regarding DF, i carded her exclusively based on her age. i’m not gonna be the guy who looks for down blouses or nip slips of the under 18 crowd. Only official photos of the kiddies here. As for why she decided to do the movie…i gotta go with Rodney. The almighty Dollah.

      Thanks for patronizing me, Bro’

      i appreciate your telling us what you really think…lol

  2. “Bella’s dad drinks “R” beer”

    That would be “R” for “Ranier” beer, http://www.rainier-beer.com/, a Northwest tradition.

    That was about the only authentic touch in this teen travesty that I confess the 13-year-old girl inside of me really kind of does like.

    You were so accurate in your assessments, and I laughed. But I really am going to want to go see #4, too, because I am this far in and that 13-year-old in my head wants to know what happens next, without having to read.

    • Hi my Angel,

      Thanks for the insight on “R” beer. i visited the site but couldn’t get an idea about its quality.

      Anyone out there know if it’s good beer or not?

      Cheers,

      Al K Hall

  3. The wife’s off to see this tomorrow night. I’ll probably be forced to endure it when it comes out on BluRay.

    Things I’d do: Kristen Stewart, although she’d have to shut her trap and lie there all quiet like.

    Ashley Greene: Holy fuckin’ moley Al, you dug up some wad-worthy material on HER!!! I’d actually probably watch this film if there was a chance we’d get to see some Greene Boob, heck, even a flash of Ash Ass, but since there’s about as much chance of me discovering the secret island of twenty-something lesbian harlets I’ve dreamed of occasionally, I’ll still skip it. But those pics of here are…. de-lightful.

    And don’t start me on R-Pat, for Chrissakes. Him and that idiotically muscle-bound Lautner clown need to tone it down for the rest of mankind. If girls expect us real men to be anything like that, they’re setting themselves up for a fall. Like I wanna be hairy like a werewolf or cold and hard (gulp) like a vampire. Second thoughts, I’d take hard over hairy any day.

    Drink up folks, this Twilight thing’s not going away as quick as we’d like. You’ll need something stronger than Ranier beer to get the taste of this rubbish out of your mouth.

    • Wow brother! What awesome prose! You should, like, have your own blog or something.

      As for the talent, there’s some other cool shots of Ashley and the rest of the team in the review of New Moon.

      Drink up folks, this Twilight thing’s not going away as quick as we’d like. You’ll need something stronger than Ranier beer to get the taste of this rubbish out of your mouth.” Couldn’t have said it better yourself!
