When I heard they were making a Veronica Mars movie, I was very happy, I was over-the-moon!!!!! I started watching the show half way through the first season, in 2004, and was hooked from the first sarcastic comment out of Veronica’s (Kristen Bell’s) mouth. In case you don’t know, the premise of the show is that she is a modern day Nancy Drew. I could relate to Veronica as I was a bit of a loner during school and sometimes still am. I enjoy my time at home. I am much more a home body than someone that likes to go out and party. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good party, but it has to be with the right people. What I liked and still like most about Veronica is that she isn’t afraid to be who she is. She doesn’t pretend to be someone she’s not (unless she’s undercover, investigating someone). She says what’s on her mind, she is authentic, doesn’t play games and she doesn’t put up with crap from anyone.
The series ended abruptly with a lot of loose ends. There were rumours that they were going to have Veronica join the FBI, they even alluded to that in the movie, but it never happened. I have to say I was quite upset the show ended. It was well written, witty, entertaining and fun to watch. So when I heard that they were making a movie, I was ecstatic!!!!!! Through Kickstarter, they were able to raise more than enough money to make the movie.
I watched it about 3 weeks ago and IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!!!! The same cast was back, the writers were the same, it seemed as though the only thing that changed was that 7 years had elapsed and everyone was older. The repartee was the same, and it really stayed true to the show. keeping it’s integrity. The movie is about how Veronica moves away from Neptune to New York, to start a new life, and gets pulled back to help Logan defend himself against a murder charge. One review I read is that this was a love letter to the fans and I couldn’t agree more. Not many made to movie tv shows keep the essence of the show and the Veronica Mars movie did. I loved every moment of it from the beginning to the end. By far my favourite part was when Veronica finally punches Madison St. Clair in the face. I cheered so loud I was afraid that I would wake my son up. I felt like she was punching all the Madison St. Clairs’ of the world for all of us. Now re-watching the series, Madison is a serious bitch, excuse my language, but she is. She reminds me of a few girls I went to Junior High with. It felt cathartic to have Veronica hit her, is that crazy????
Anyways I could go on and on about this movie. I was not compensated at all to write this post, but when I like something I want to share it with the world. Veronica Mars, the movie, was exactly what I needed. It was a great way to end the series, or is it the end? They definitely left it open so that there could be another movie, but if there isn’t, they did wrap things up nicely. I only want them to do another one if they keep the integrity, the cast, the writing all the same. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
The movie was released March 14 in selected theatres and also on Shaw VOD. Even if you’re not a fan, or didn’t watch the series, it’s definitely a movie worth watching.
May this blog inspire you to watch Veronica Mars, the movie.
