Have fun!
For some reason my SmartTV Vudu app thinks the VM movie is the only one of my UV movies I don't own. It only had the option to rent even though it's in my library. I watched a few snippets on my phone but that was it. Probably a good thing - I would've likely watched the whole thing.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

So I just started the first season today (I just finished episode 3 as of typing this).

I'm pretty set on seeing the movie tomorrow, will the movie spoil the Lily Kane mystery? Or any other mysteries for that matter.

Having not seen the movie but all of the show, I suggest you just finish the show before starting the movie. What is the rush? You wouldn't understand who Piz is and he's the most important character besides Veronica.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

You have to watch all three seasons before you can watch the movie.

The movie is just a really short short season 4.

If you can't be bothered watching all three seasons, watch the movie sure, no harm, but you are watching all three seasons, or as much as you can stomach, so you might as well watch the movie in the correct viewing order so that it makes sense and you avoid spoilers.

I've heard the movie is quite accessible to non-fans. So I don't think I'll have any problem with characters I've never seen before.

And the rush is that I've already planned a day at the movies tomorrow and Veronica Mars is the movie I decided to see.

I don't understand why you picked it. I'm sure non-fans can come in and pick up on what's going on. But you asked if there will be no spoilers. Of course there will be spoilers. The first two minutes review the three seasons of the show. However if you really want to see it the spoilers given in the first two minutes are vague, but you won't understand what happened to certain characters.

But as a fan that doesn't live near where it's playing. Go see it, we like your money.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

I'm starting to suspect this is how non-Firefly Fans felt when trying to talk about Serenity with Brown Coats.

I asked a simple question, and true I didn't specify, but it was kind of directed at people that, you know, have actually seen the movie and could answer my question.

While a non-fan could watch the film, I'm just not sure why anyone would want to. Not only will it spoil certain things, you'll get so much more out of the movie if you know the characters. I can't imagine it being even remotely as satisfying to a newcomer.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

I have seen the movie.

It's a reunion movie.

Imagine going to someone else's high school reunion.

You don't know these people, so you don't care about them.

Why the hell are you there?

If this is your only chance to see it at a real theatre, then that trumps all other arguments.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

IMPORTANT!

There's TWO extras after the credits start rolling, so don't leave the theatre when all the other dillwads do.

There's more.

So watch the first bit, laugh, then watch some more credits, then watch another post snip, then watch ten more seconds and it's over.

Remember how annoyed you were when you missed Thanos at the Theatre?

Get your moneys worth and sit the hell down.

So I'm confused. Is the B plot supposed to be resolved in the novel?

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

A lot of things were happening.

Which B plot?

I doubt the books were canon.

I have to ask as well: Which B plot? Are you referring to



If so, I don't think it will be resolved in the book. It's more likely that it sets the tone for a possible sequel.

Which is really


I started out yesterday upset that the nearest theater showing the movie was an hour away and ended the day renting it from Google Play and watching it on my television. Yay for modern distribution methods!
