The secret of The Lord of the Rings

 
What makes a great movie?
Insurmountable obstacles. Unfathomable paradox. Incomparable heroism. Irrevocable choices. These are the terrain of great movies.

What aerobics is to the body, entertainment is to the soul. We need stories to flex our inner potential to heights we rarely find in the prison of the workaday world. We need stories to connect us to each other, and to set us longing to be better than we are. There are diseases of the soul that mere reality cannot cure.
