If you're not a fan of Neil Patrick Harris, you might as well stop reading now and go look at some other movies to watch. But if you think Neil Patrick Harris is hilarious and awesome (and hilariously awesome?) then Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is the perfect Netflix Streaming hidden gem surprise for you.
The title to this movie (three mini-movies put together) might put some off, by its being strange and all. The movie starts as "Dr. Horrible," played by NPH, is talking at his own "webcam," creating a video blog. It's a slow start and a weird introduction, but it works perfectly once you come to understand the type of comedy in the film.
The movie itself is a musical (hence the sing-along aspect of the title), and the music is great. I don't like musicals, but for some reason, the music in this made it completely worth it. It's a superhero movie, and the songs are lyrically and musically toned just right to be able to be catchy, memorable, and funny all at the same time.
It's rather short in all, and that's really one of the only major downsides of it. The arch of the story is simplistic on the surface, but at the same time, complex and layered when looking deeper at the story. Maybe I'm just over-thinking it, and it's supposed to just be a fun ride, but I saw the characters within the story being metaphorical to a great extent. I loved it.

So let's recap. It's one of the best musicals on Netflix streaming. It's one of the best comedies on Netflix streaming. It's one of the best super hero movies on Netflix streaming. And it stars NPH. Why aren't you streaming this movie yet?
