MY LATEST ANGRY NERD RANT: Veronica Mars fans pledged more than $5 million on Kickstarter to get a film adaptation of the show off the ground. I'm all for crowdfunding for a good cause, when it comes to fans calling the shots in return for financial backing, the money-making model might end up causing more harm than good. Look at the trailer for the Veronica Mars movie--it's nonstop fan service! No one who didn't watch the show religiously could make heads or tails of the story! If hardcore fans funded a Star Trek reboot, they’d demand two solid hours of Kirk making out with Spock! (Okay, fine, there’d be a couple of tribble jokes in there too.)
