Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog Online 'Til Sunday
Um, the headline pretty much sums it all up for this one.
Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog is Joss Whedon's venture into the online world. It's a three-part movie (each part runs about 13 minutes) musical that features some pretty talented people in the cast and crew. Neil Patrick Harris stars as Dr. Horrible, the loser bad guy who is trying to get into the Evil League of Evil, fight his nemesis Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion, from Firefly/Serenity), and win the heart of the girl he meets at the laundromat (Felicia Dey, who I've never heard of).
Whedon, best known as the creator of the Buffy: The Vampire Slayer TV show, wrote the script with his brother and his friends during the writer's strike and they filmed it with the intentions to release it to the public for free. All three parts are free online at the movie's webpage until Sunday at midnight, so check it out while you can. If you miss it, you can buy the whole thing on iTunes for like four dollars. It's entertaining and worth while if you're a fan of any of the cast members.
