Let the connection be what it is.

It may be five minutes.

Five hours.

Five days.

Five months.

Five years.

A lifetime.

Let it manifest itself the way it is meant to.
It has an organic destiny. This way, if it stays or if it leaves.

You will be softer from having been loved this authentically. Souls come into, return, open and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons.

Let them be who and what they are meant to be.
Superman Returns is a film that came out in June of 2006. The film, which starred Brandon Routh as Superman, was meant to lead to, at the very least, one sequel. That ended up not happening. The film did get decent reviews from critics, but fans have been split on it. While I can't say that the film is perfect, I can certainly say that it's a good film that's important to me.

Superman Returns might seem like a reboot of the Superman film franchise. The trailer even showed a few scenes of Clark Kent as a kid, which would give some people the impression that this film is an origin story. That...

Since you haven't seen the X-Men films, I thought that a cast list would help introduce you to the world of X-Men. There have been quite a few spin-off films, but in order to keep things easier, I'll be focusing on the two main X-Men casts.

First, there was a trilogy of films, 2000's X-Men, 2003's X2: X-Men United and 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. Instead of rebooting the franchise, Fox decided to do prequel films with a younger cast. First, there was 2011's X-Men: First Class. Then there was 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. That film has scenes from both the past and future, so the original...

Some of his films are even classified under the horror genre. However, unlike other horror films, Vincent Price's film weren't super scary or gory. Instead...

Catwoman was one of the earliest Batman villains to be created. She was created shortly after Hugo Strange and the Joker. She has gone on to be a regular and prominent character in the Batman franchise. Over the years, she's blurred the line between evil and good. Sometimes, she's one of Batman's enemies. Other times, she's working with Batman. The 2000's comics took things to a new level where Batman trusted Catwoman with the knowledge of his secret identity.

It could be argued that the Joker is the most iconic villain in all of fiction. He first appeared in 1940. He was meant to just be one of the many villains Batman encountered. However, the Joker was a character with so much potential that he managed to constantly re-appear in Batman comics. He's gone on to become Batman's arch enemy. In addition to that, he has had several live action adaptations, two of which won the Oscar.

There was almost a live action version of the Joker in 1943. J. Carrol Naish was going to be the one to play him. However, the movie serial was turned into war propaganda,...
