Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

{4.5/5} “I also need to be a little bit more careful about what I say on this blog. Apparently the LAPD and Captain Hammer are among our viewers.”

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

Dr. Horrible wants to rule the world. He has a video blog in which he talks to his fans, and he’s trying to get into the Evil League of Evil. He’s interested in Penny, who he often sees at the laundromat, but he’s scared to talk to her. Dr. Horrible’s nemesis is Captain Hammer, who often foils his plans.

Written by Joss Whedon and his friends during a writer’s strike, this movie was one of the first that was released on the internet that made a splash. It might not have wowed me quite as much as the first time, but it’s funny and clever.

Neil Patrick Harris, a comedic genius, is pitch perfect as Dr. Horrible right from his first line.

Stars Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day. Directed by Joss Whedon (writer on Toy Story). The humourous music is by Jed Whedon and Joss Whedon.

The commentary on the DVD is also, astonishingly, a musical.

This is the 3rd time I’ve seen it. My previous review is here.
