"... And so do Burglars" Moment was in a production video but not in the film Can't Post

I can't remember which production video it was, but one of them showed Martin Freeman in full Bilbo makeup saying the end of the "Horses take some catching, and so do burglars" line and then putting on the Ring and making a "whoosh" sound. It happens at the end of one of them. I was really looking forward to seeing this moment in the film, but at least they kept the "Wolf among Sheep" boasting from Smaug.

Was this just Freeman being nerdy?

Hmmm... [In reply to] Can't Post

They probably replaced it with some attack of the clones style romance.

I noticed that too. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd forgotten about that when I was trying to think of all the stuff that was missing.

I have a feeling it was more just Martin being nerdy. It could be an alternate take of the moment when he puts on the Ring, or it could be yet another moment that was just cut out for whatever reason but will hopefully end up in the extended edition.

Either [In reply to] Can't Post

that was just Martin being goofy, or maybe it will be in the EE.

Nah. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Amidala/Anakin romance was clunky from start to finish, whereas Tauriel's 'starlight' chat with Fili was really quite moving. I could have done without the illuminated healing, sure, but it wasn't a lethal blow to the film.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

lights and such [In reply to] Can't Post

the illuminated healing was of course very nice
When Lady G. the Elf Queen spoke with Frodo there was more light and darkness
When Gandalf is angry with Bilbo, as Bilbo wants to keep the ring for him self and screams "Do not take me for a cheap..." the whole Biblo house turns darker
When Elfs and Wizards do something in this movie we do not get PIEF PAF POEF we see it with light. Just like keepers of the ring start to walk in green light when they put on the ring.
I like it.. it gives an extra flair and greatness to the movies.
In one word "Bravo !"

There are always scenes that are filmed but get cut. [In reply to] Can't Post

There were plenty of scenes that we saw in trailers for FOTR that never made it into any version of the films. The fact that we saw it in a production video probably means it was a fairly late cut. It may make the EE, or it may just have been that they felt the scene was long enough and played just as well without it.
