Anyone that knows me, knows I'm a HUGE fan of the series Veronica Mars and of course of Kristen Bell. Duh! Anyway, I just watched the Veronica Mars Movie for the first time today....5 years after buying the DVD. What? Yeah. Exactly. What indeed! Okay, some explaining is needed here of course. How can I be a fan and wait that long? Well, my original intention when I bought the DVD was that I was going to do a Veronica Mars DVD marathon, first with Season 1-3 of the TV show and then cap it off with the movie. But I just never could find the time to shoehorn this marathon into existence. Fast-forward 5 years and Season 4 now a reality and currently playing on Hulu and something I've know for awhile as something I was making plans to see, I just couldn't put off watching the movie once and for all. There. All caught up today.

Okay, so what about the movie? Was it any good? Well, it opens up great with the "previously on..." recap. But for some reason, even though Bell is there as Mars, I just wasn't into the movie the way I had envisioned it. It just seemed a "by-the-book" movie. Wasn't bad. Wasn't good. Just middle of the road. It took maybe 30 minutes before it finally "felt" like a legit Veronica Mars episode and once it did, I was so invested in where the story was going. Sure, Mars investigating a murder of someone she knew from High School has already been done before. See Season 1. But it still worked here. But for VM fans like myself, it's the cameos people want to see and it was cool to see all those familiar faces from the first 3 Seasons. I won't dive into spoilers here, if anyone plans on watching it for themselves. But I will say that I legit loved the Freaks and Geeks connection with Martin Starr, Dave Allen and James Franco. So yeah, I'm 5 years late to the party, but the movie was definitely worth waiting for. A definite Buy...which you already know I have.

Now I have Season 4 to watch......
