I just can't do it justice. Do what justice, you ask? Sidra saw LOTR: The Two Towers on Sunday.
My mind still isn't sitting right inside my head.
There is, however, one moment that I'll share, that shored up my faith for a while in the basic goodness of humanity. Everyone in the movie theater held their breath -- every single one of us -- when Treebeard stepped out of the forest, carrying Merry and Pippin, and saw what Isengard had become.
That was a truly visceral and personal condemnation of blind progress for progress's sake, and one that completely stopped the audience in its tracks.
