Joss Whedon’s “Dr. Horrible” - Part 3

And there goes the happy ending. ;)

Captain Hammer has everyone fooled, and marks the great hero. Where he has to give a speech about his work for the homeless (which he despises) Dr. Horrible amushes him, freezes him with his freezeray and tries to kill him with his newly invented deathray, but he can’t. The freezeray malfunctions and Captain Hammer (unfortunately) can move again, he hits Dr. Horrible in which course the deathray gets damaged, which Captain Hammer des not notice, so then, when he pulls the trigger to finally kill his foe, the weapon is destroyed in an explosion, and Captain Hammer feel pain for the first time and runs away like a whyning baby. Penny gets hit by debree and dies. Dr. Horrible has now lost everything holding him back on his evil path (And I’m sure Penny’s last words “Captain Hammer will save us” gave him the rest). Dr. Horrible finally can join the evil league (because of Penny’s death) and he now does evil things…

He’s so evil, to even exchange his white coat with a red one.

This last part was alright, but not as good as the first two, because there was no letter from “Bad Horse”, because Dr. Horrible turned evil, because Penny died, and because this episode (in my opinion) was less humorous than the other two.

Joss Whedon’s “Dr. Horrible” - Part 2

Today the second part of Joss Whedon’s  “Dr. Horrible” came out.

Dr. Horrible’s Arch Nemesis “Captain Hammer” (played by Nathan Fillion) is stealing Penny’s (Dr. Horrible’s true love) heart and Dr. Horrible slowly shifts to the evil side, he’s already on. His atempts do denounce Captain Hammer and win back Penny fail horribly, so he then decides to kill Captain Hammer, ho have him out of he picture, and to finally become a member of the evil league.

In this episode, we get to know a little bit more about Captain Hammer, wo really seems to be all about his strength (and nothing else, apparently). Dr. Horribles fall into evilness continues (can he still be saved?) and with his freze-ray complete he now posesses a weapon worthy of a superhero.

The final part will air on the 19. July.

Joss Whedon’s “Dr. Horrible” - Part 1

Yesterday the first part of Joss Whedon’s (Creator of the unreached Firefly and the Buffy- and Angel Series) “Dr. Horrible” came out, and is viewable for free until the 21. July on the Dr. Horrible Website.

It tells the story of the social-incapable, evil genious “Dr. Horrible” trying to talk to the woman of his dreams (Penny, who he sees every Wednesday and Saturday in the laundry house) and become a member of the evil league, headed by “Bad Horse”.

It’s funny, at times totally hilarious, greatly scripted and just well done. Allthough some may think it is over-hyped, I think it’s not, its just a extraordinary piece of (what schould I called it?) film, that get’s the recognition it deserves.

5/5

The next part will go on air tomorrow.
