Five Things You Learn From Quarantine.

A list post? What?

I know. I know. But if Clovertine needs a blurb? I would go with…

“An Educational Experience!”–Andrew Rosin, Epic Carnival

And why is it so? That’s why were here.

1. Camera Motion adds to the perception of awesome.

Not in a Paul Greengrass, Cloverfield sort of way. But the cameraman as narrator story is an easy rocket boost to a flagging story. And if it doesn’t make you sick, it can be able to be a cheap way to get entertained.

2. Dexter’s Sister could make the A-List.

Honestly. This might be merely me being predictive and speculative, but she could be awesome in an Judd Apatow-styled RomCom. Seriously. The pulse-pounding action doesn’t come until late. And that needed an air quote.

She’d be better than Kristen Wiig anyway.

3. Don’t show the last scene of a horror movie in a TV Spot.

You’d think the marketing people would know that by now. And yet? No.

4. Zombies have officially become hack.

And as a man who reads Marvel Zombies and The Walking Dead and paid for Quarantine? That may be a Hell of a thing. It used to take Nick Cannon to keep me away from a Zombie Movie. Now? It’s something else entirely.

5. Wait for Cable.

Seriously. Just do it.
