Looking forward to this scene so much. [In reply to] Can't Post

I really feel like there was a beat of Bilbo's development that felt left out of the movie, and you can tell it's because this scene is out. Presumably, Elrond tells Bilbo that he's welcome to stay in Rivendell. When the dwarves depart, the camera doesn't show Bilbo until he steps into frame. It's a moment that shows that he's decided to continue on the quest. That then leads into when Thorin chastises him and says he never should have come, which in turn leads him to tell Bofur that he's going "back to Rivendell". The fact that the scene is missing is a chink in the armor, so to speak, of Bilbo's story at this stage of the story. As the film currently plays, Bilbo doesn't really get any substantial character development until he spares Gollum's life.

For all the complaints about the film's length, this is one scene that probably should have stayed in. I'm very much looking forward to it in the EE. Thankfully, in the meantime, it would seem we at least have the music from the scene to enjoy. Smile

P.S. Speaking of character development, I really hope we get some great character beats for the dwarves as well. There was obviously stuff left out about the relationship of Thorin-Fili-Kili. *Fingers crossed*

"All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake to find that it was vanity; But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. That they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible."
- T.E. Lawrence
