Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

{5/5} “The world is a mess and I just… need to rule it.”

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, released in 2008

Dr. Horrible is trying to get into the Evil League of Evil — he has a letter of condemnation from the deputy mayor, so he thinks he’ll get in this year. In the meantime he likes a woman named Penny but he’s too scared to talk to her. Dr. Horrible would get more horrible things done but his nemesis Captain Hammer always shows up to stop him.

This movie is screamingly funny, and the songs are very clever. It’s a bit of Megamind and a bit of the musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Neil Patrick Harris is brilliant as Dr. Horrible, as is Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer. Directed by Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron).

This is the second time I’ve seen it.

    Dave, have you listened to the commentary soundtrack on the DVD? It has an entirely new musical in it! Probably just as funny as the main one.

    I have now! Thanks for the tip. Those are some very funny — and musical — people.
