I was glad to see that announcement. The updates have really dried up.

You can't really conclude anything from Rob's email, but the way he talks about the movie is starting to make me wonder if it's any good.

I am not sure how you got that from the update.

It sounded like he is not a fan of the screening process, especially using unfinished prints.

I got the feeling he was managing expectations, too.

I dunno. To me, it just seemed like he was describing what virtually all movies go through. To me, nothing he described came as a surprise, and it didn't even sound all that negative to me. It was simply matter-of-fact, "this is how the business works."

Maybe it's just one of those things that some people don't want or need to know, sort of like not wanting to know how that hamburger on your plate came to be.

Indeed, most of it was just matter-of-fact, here's-how-the-process works kind of stuff. But Rob's last few updates have talked about post-production, and he's mentioned several times things like having other people look the film because he might not be able to tell anymore what is working, and so on. It has been awhile since he has acted enthusiastic about how the movie is turning out. I'm sure he's tired, but I might have expected at least one "I'm excited about how it is taking shape!" comment. Dunno... I may be reading too much into things.

I got my notification today. The USPS tracking site is down, so I haven't seen an estimated delivery date.

Got it! Though I think I'll get more use out of the stickers than the shirt. There's no way in H-E-double hockey sticks that the shirt is an XL. But....I got it!

It's been so long since I confirmed with them what shirt I wanted. Didn't they offer different sizes?

Yes, but Warner Brothers’ shirts run very small. At least I think so. I found that out this summer when I took a tour of the lot there and bought some shirts (Game of Thrones and Pretty Little Liars) for a nephew and niece.

Of course, that was after I had ordered my VM shirt.

I ordered a medium and it appears to be on the large side of what I would expect in a medium, although not too much so. And judging by the material, it will shrink a lot. Unfortunately, it's not my idea of a premium t-shirt: 2/3 poly, 1/3 cotton, and so thin it is basically sheer.

All that said, it'll do. I'm happy to have it and expect I'll wear it from time to time.

And with t-shirt comes new backer update (and new footage!). I guess I can stop worrying about how much he is worrying.

Re: the new footage.

If you're afraid to watch it, it is mostly cast and crew commentary on the Veronica / Piz vs. Logan triangle -- hence the "Love Triangle" title of the bit. Comments are interspersed with new clips from the movie.

It is mostly safe from spoilers. But if you watch, you will learn two things: 1. The present-day nature of Veronica's relationship (or if there is one) with both Logan and Piz; and 2. what brings Veronica back to Neptune for the movie.

Thanks for the summary! As someone who doesn't even watch previews, I think I'll pass.

I think the movie is supposed to take place at Veronica's 10th high school reunion. So about nine years after S3, which took place during VM's freshman year of college.
