How ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Succeeds Where ‘Man of Steel’ Failed

Admittedly, I never felt too outraged over the ending of last summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ (Yes, there will be major spoilers ahead.) The complaints over Superman breaking the neck of his foe were certainly valid – therefore changing the very definition of the character – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film. That changed after seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’

See the Cast of ‘Sister Act’ Then and Now

Released in 1992, 'Sister Act' starred Whoopi Goldberg as a lounge singer from Reno, put in protective custody and forced to stay at a convent, where she must pretend to be a nun to evade a dangerous mob boss. The film was a smash hit and inspired a sequel, released the following year, and a musical that went on to debut on Broadway in 2011. 22 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved classic comedy and see what they're up to now.

We’ll Miss You, ‘How I Met Your Mother’ (But, Please Leave)

Admittedly, I’m feeling much more melancholy today about the  ‘How I Met Your Mother’ series finale than I expected. Which, on the surface, makes little sense because, boy, Season 9 has been a slog to watch. (I was once a religious viewer, but now it’s come to the point where, over this past weekend, I had to participate in a ten-episode marathon just to get caught up for the finale.) Look, I’m pretty late to the “this final season has been bad” chorus, but I don’t think that’s really the point here – or, at least, it doesn’t quite explain why I feel forlorn about a show that recently I found difficult to watch.

Whither Dr. Alfred Bellows: The Death of the Television Rerun

There’s a better-than-average chance you have no idea who Alfred Bellows is. And, to be honest, I don’t know that much about Alfred Bellows either. Like, for instance, I have no idea if his friends call him “Al” in social situations. I mean, that would certainly make sense. I do know that Alfred Bellows – who, professionally, went as Dr. Bellows – was Tony Nelson and Roger Healey’s superior officer on a popular situational comedy that aired from 1965 until 1970 titled ‘I Dream of Jeannie.’

I mention this because, one night a couple of weeks ago after a few pints, I made a Dr. Bellows reference. As you might imagine, a Dr. Bellows reference doesn’t quite go over like gangbusters today like it would, say, 44 years ago. Unsurprisingly, I had to explain who Dr. Bellows is and that explanation was met with the inquiry, “Wait, how old are you?”

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Louis C.K. May or May Not Have a Darth Vader Up His Butt

So, yes, welcome to 'SNL' Scorecard’s third official home (we started way back in 2010 at Movieline before moving to HuffPost) and I hope everyone found their way over here okay? There's a new graphic! Anyway, can we dispense with the introductions now because that’s not why you’re here? Great, moving on…

What an interesting show this was! It certainly wasn’t the best show of the season – though it just might have had the best sketch – but there were a lot of oddities last night. And oddities are a good thing, as opposed to just the parade of current popular culture references that seemed to litter the first half of this season. Louis C.K. returns for his second hosting gig – and C.K. is an interesting host because (A) he’s good and (B) he’s been, let’s say, known to give up on a sketch when he knows it’s not working. (Remember when he sandbagged the “Mountain Pass” sketch?) And last night we finally did learn if Louis C.K. has a Darth Vader action figure up his butt. Anyway, let’s get to the Scorecard…
