Filmwhys #26 District 9 & Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

Welcome back to another episode of Filmwhys, episode 26 of the Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guest is Shala Thomas from Life Between Films who asks me why I haven’t seen District 9, the surprising sci-fi debut of Neill Blomkamp about an alien spaceship stranded above Johannesburg where the aliens get placed in a slum on the outskirts of the city and eventually become a hotbed of racial tension and xenophobia. And in return, I ask her why she hasn’t seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, the Joss Whedon experiment in web content during the writer’s strike from several years ago about the rise of a super-villain done as a catchy musical.

  1. Really cool episode. 21 Grams and Memento are great choices by Shala, and Another Earth by Brit Marling is a movie that is worth checking out . I dont want a 2nd Dr. Horrible because the movie ends on a perfect albeit dark note. Dr. Horrible is where he wants to be, but he paid the price for it. Not sure what they could do to change his situation and I dont want them too. Much Ado About Nothing was brilliant

    • I think there’s more to the story that could be told, and everyone is up for it, they just have to find a way to get them all on the same schedule. I have confidence that Joss Whedon and his team have an interesting story that doesn’t take away from this one.
