Although it's not a real movie or a real blog, "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." deserves to be reviewed by me. The brainchild of Joss Whedon, "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" is an internet phenomenon starring Neil Patrick Harris, Feliecia Day and Nathan Fillion.
Okay, let's get this straight ... Neil Patrick Harris as a doctor? Come on. It'll never work. I would believe he's a doctor just as much as I would believe Nathan Fillion as a carpenter named Captain Hammer.
I mean, first of all ... he's a kid. Harris is what, twelve? Maybe thirteen? The kid barely has an Adam's Apple. Who would believe a doctor could be that young?
Then you mix in a hot redhead - okay, that part was good, but she didn't lose any clothes. Add an overzealous bumbling hero-type and a few drab villains and you call it a show? I'm shaking my head.
Sure it was funny and sure, they won an Emmy. But even I could win an Emmy. Have you seen my rendition of "Annie Get Your Gun?"
And don't forget, this so-called movie was actually a musical in disguise. A musical. Musicals are about as gay as Hollywood can get. Doesn't matter the tunes were catchy and well-written. If you could hire a team of monkeys to write Shakespeare, you could surely hire a bunch of Hollywood hacks to write musicals.
The only saving grace of this little film was that somebody got killed.
To sum it up: Superhero + villains + babe - musical + free = okay.
