Movie Versions of TV Shows (Upcoming)

SO GLAD someone else is finally making a stink about this:

Article on Film School Rejects: Why Do Fans Want Crappy Movies Of Their Favourite TV Shows?

The thrust of the article, and it's quick and well-worth reading, is

Well this really applies only to shows that 'ran its course' and had a proper send off. But shows like Firefly and the upcoming Veronica Mars demanded that the series continue onward with movies because of the non-resolution to the series. It's a way to properly wrap up the series and if a movie is the only way to get it done, then so be it. Now take my money and keep the movies coming!

Can't and won't read the article due to the Spoiler Alerts and there are some series that I need to wrap up first and won't risk by reading it.
