    Much-welcome reunion brings fans up to speed

    Posted

    Despite discovering the series of the same name four years ago--and listing it as a Facebook favorite--I didn't learn of the fan effort to bring it back as a film, until the Kickstarter film campaign was over, and Kristen Bell was thanking her fans. Nevertheless, it was welcome news. I was taken aback by the film's ditching a supposed FBI career track for Veronica--hinted at in Season 3--replacing it with a possible future as a New York attorney, but the film made up for it; it shows why her nature makes it hard to cut all links to her P.I. past. The lives of the cast are examined, too, going in predictable directions, said directions being better, worse, or mixed, i.e., Wallace as a teacher, Weevil as a happily married family man (later events complicating this), Mac as a computer programmer--for the Kanes, and dad Keith Mars remaining popular in Neptune, despite events in the series. Mean girl Madison Sinclair and village idiot Dick Casablancas, don't change at all, alas. Minor characters--nameless, to conceal spoilers--return, only to die for reasons relevant to the plot. And Logan Echolls, despite his Navy pilot career, is still Logan, with all that this implies, the implications driving the film, and affecting Veronica's future. A return to Veronica's old stomping grounds was long overdue, and unexpected--given earlier obstacles to its TV return or a comic/graphic novel continuation--but I'm confused by the film's failure to reexamine plot threads at the show's end, threads including the fate of Keith Mars, supposedly indicted in the finale for destroying evidence harmful to Veronica, yet he's seemingly unaffected by those events, here. (Even if it was mentioned off-screen by the series' creator, the film should have mentioned it.) The activities of the menacing, Illuminati-like secret society known as the Castle could've been explored further, but never were. And why Logan still has a pulse, after having been marked for death after his smackdown with someone tied to the Russian mob, is confusing, even though it's a relief that he's alive. On the other hand, some loose ends are obvious with common sense. The absence of Veronica's dog, Backup, could simply be that he died in the 10 year interim; how long do dogs live, anyway? Do the math. As for Vinnie Van Lowe still being a sleazy private eye, not Sheriff (the finale implied that Keith's indictment let him win the Sheriff's race)? The same explanation for Veronica's comfort with private eye work, despite her career alternatives: He's obviously more comfortable with that life. As one who loves to keep dirt on the high and mighty, he would not be too happy as Sheriff of Neptune, a job that has previously required those in that position to suck up to the powers that be. (And the powers that be would be aware of his reputation, too.) And while the film appears to be set in 2014, wouldn't the passage of a decade put this film closer to 2017, as the series ended in 2007? Minor nit, but still. Nevertheless, I have limited complaints about this film, whose bittersweet conclusion is still open-ended enough for a sequel. That said, if one hasn't seen the TV series, it's definitely a prerequisite for watching the film.

    Mostly all said up above. Great price. Blu ray and digital version. I was a big fan of the tv show and loved the characters and their stories and relationships with one another. I got several roommates hooked with my dvd collection. Then it was cancelled without a lot of resolution. Then I find out it would be a big screen movie and dvd release and went and saw it asap. I went with a friend who had never seen the tv show and we both loved it. It was even more exciting for me because it was like a reunion with a lot of resolution. I wish they could do it with less swearing etc but I'm just glad to have it. The extras are great especially with the blu ray but I just love it so much I'm left wanting even more. And I love Kristen Bell as an actress so I was glad to see a movie with her in it.

    The first of it's kind, kickstarted funded by the fans for the fans. Veronica Mars was a successful show during the mid-2000's that had it's run cut short when the CW-Network canceled the show after it's third season. Fans were left with a lot of questions and not enough answers but Veronica Mars fans never gave up and because of it, creator Rob Thomas was able to come up with the idea of having the fans fund the film and what a film it turned out to be. From beginning to end, you find yourself on the edge of your seat and dying from the stitch in your side. I recommend this to anyone who used to watch the show and anyone just interested in a good mystery.

    I love the series, but was bummed that it got cancelled and ended on a cliffhanger. For years it looked like we would be left in the lurch and never even know what happened to these amazing characters. However, thanks to the fans and kickstarter, we got a movie. Not only did we get a movie, we got a great one. The only negative I can say about the Blu-ray is that there aren't enough extras for my tastes. There's a nice 50 minute doc about the fans, but I would've liked a little more stuff about the story and the actors would've been nice, so would a commentary with Rob and Kristen. Those are minor nitpicks, though.

    If you are like me and didn't find out about this show until it was already canceled you owe it to yourself to binge watch every season and the movie. I never thought the UPN could have a quality show on its network so I never bothered watching this show when it aired. But that was a mistake. This was a great show with snappy dialogue and story. Now as a fan of the show you might think my review of the movie is bias but my wife has only watched a few of the episodes and she did enjoy the movie. You don’t need to watch every episode before watching the movie but it’s worth it.

    The conclusion that the series deserved.

    I think this movie essentially wrapped up the TV series in a good way. It didn't feel like a huge cinematic masterpiece; it was more like an extremely extended episode, but awesome nonetheless. Just beware that there's a few things throughout the movie that they could never get away with on broadcast television. Even though this film came out about 10 years after the show, most of the main cast doesn't seem to have aged that much... Note: as for my rating on the DVD Extras, it's just a generic rating. I haven't actually viewed them yet.

    It's like the show has never left. Rob Thomas has brought the aspect of the tv show to the big screen thanks to kickstarter campagian that was run to make this movie for the fans of the show. The fans wanted this movie made it raised 1 million dollars on kickstarter in 4 hours and 24 minutes which set a record on kickstarter. All the quirkiness and attitude that we loved in the show was here in the movie. So if you were a fan of the show and did not get a chance to see the movie. I recommend that you do. You will not be disappointed.

    Fair Follow Up To A Great Show

    I loved this show when it was on, and was very excited for the movie, and though I didn't feel that the film was bad it didn't really fill the void that I was hoping for. The film had the feeling of a full season of the show, there was really nothing that said big motion picture to me. I liked the show so I liked the film, however, because it is a film I was expecting them to really take it to the next level. This I was disappointed in.
