    Pretty much explains EVERYTHING about him, if you think about it!

    To wit...

    Bruce Brazos and Bumblebee are BOTH assigned the task of essentially watching over Sam...Bumblebee by Optimus, and Bruce by his Board via Dylan's recommendation.

    Bruce Brazos even begins to function as a "guardian" for Sam, echoing Bumblebee's role, by pledging to protect him from the fallout after Wang's death.

    Bruce Brazos is a martial artist, just like Bay's Bumblebee.

    Bruce Brazos is OBSESSED with yellow, the color of Bumblebee.

    In fact...

    While he's interviewing Sam on the "Yellow Floor" and flips out about the red cup, you can see he's even wearing a yellow tie and yellow socks. Nice touch.

    Even better, when he sticks his foot in Carly's door and demands to see a TF, just once...yup, nice tight close-up on his YELLOW shoe. Ha.

    And WHICH TF is the ONE TF Bruce Brazos gets to meet?

    That's right...BUMBLEBEE.

    :D 

    My favorite element in ALL this, though, is that series of "karate" pictures he keeps by his desk. At first I was misled away from their REAL point by their function in the scene, which seems to basically be to say to Sam, "Oh, you wanna be a corporate killer viking warrior? TOO BAD. That position is FILLED."

    But then there's the spray tan in the pictures.

    ZOMFG, Bruce Brazos even has YELLOW SKIN, ffs!!!

    O_O

    Seriously!

    It's all so OBVIOUS in hindsight!

    Hard to believe no one's even mentioned it before this, right?

    Haha, THAT'S what I'm here for, lol.

    :p 

    Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool and definitely justifies all the quirky oddball stuff about him that seems so strange and out of place otherwise. Really gives me a WHOLE new appreciation for his character.

    John Malkovitch can be such a genius-level actor that I wonder if some of that stuff didn't come from his own efforts to breathe life into the role by "workshopping" it. It's really pretty clever, actually.

    Regardless, it's freakin' awesome and absolutely hilarious.

    LOVE IT.

    :)

    Also...

    When Sam's talking about his "500 page employee conduct manual" at his job working for Bruce Brazos, he inadvertently discovers having guests at your desk constitutes a "Visitor Violation."

    But if Carly would've been dressed just a bit more like a "Latin Meltdown" hootchie-mama then she MIGHT have been guilty of a Bisitor Biolation!

    >_>

    <_<

    Y'know...'cause Vs are basically Bs in Spanish.

    Haha, shut up.

    :p

    And lastly (for now)...

    Carly's apartment is painted kinda golden-yellow all over the place.

    And she has tanned-bronze skin and blonde hair.

    ZOMFG, CARLY = SAM'S FEMALE BUMBLEBEE...100% Serious!!!

    Haha, she even pays for his food and gives him a place to stay so she kinda serves as a "guardian" for Sam just like Bumblebee and Bruce Brazos both do, lol.

    WTF.

    O_O

    You're putting a lot, maybe too much, thought into a bunch of coincidences.


    Even if you put 100%SERIOUS on your thread title, I'm still not sure if serious.

    However, you're new here, so welcome to the boards.

    I said "100% Serious" for a reason.

    Two, actually.

    Yes, I'm aware that this subject is likely to be met with MUCH derision, but the core observation is nonetheless COMPLETELY solid and I stand behind it 100%.

    That said, there are also some elements within the film which pertain to this discussion yet which I included purely to further the point with tongue planted firmly in cheek...such as the bit about the "Bisitor Biolation," lol.

    Likewise, I'd counter that anyone not acknowledging these subtler aspects of the movie isn't putting enough thought into it.

    Thanks for the welcome, though! Nice to be here.

    :)

    Haha, thanks!

    Not too sure that I'm not a fanboy hung up on the details myself, lol, but I definitely enjoy this franchise and these movies WAY too much to bitch about them needlessly.

    That said, I'm sure I'll get involved in all that a bit once I start working through the backlog of everyone else's threads, I just had a few of my own to share here first and thought it would be a fun way to introduce myself, lol.

    Haha..."welcome," indeed.

    Hardly an obsession, merely a set of relatively casual observations.

    Hope you've enjoyed them and found them insightful.

    Well, it doesn't seem Michael Bay is smart enough to have BRUCE BRAZOS echo Bumblebee.

    Really, Hazekiah?
    :throw 
    I heard all the comments about your threads. I didn't know if they were all that neccesary...

    They are.
    Dude. Take a break from making threads. And if you still wanna make one, make one thread. Not 10 threads on uneccessary subjects.

    Sam's annoying boss played by the talented John Malkovitch (Con Air).

    Haha, okay...thanks, glad to hear it.

    :) 

    While I'm not really the biggest fan of Michael Bay OR of selling him short as so many do, who says Michael Bay has to be the one responsible for the correlation between these two characters?

    I even speculated in the OP that it seemed like the sort of gag that might've arisen from, say, Malkovitch himself "workshopping" the character to give it a more interesting angle.

    Lots of other people involved in this stuff, you know.

    That does not follow at all.

    And I've watched it PLENTY of times, I assure you...but not exactly regularly. I hit it pretty hard in theaters (largely because I probably won't be owning a 3D TV any time soon), but the most I've ever seen it in one 24 hour period was three times. I did that twice, though, lol.

    Good times!

    Yes, "really." And I'm sorry, but are you a moderator? Yeah, that's what I thought. Moving on...

    No But i was just wondering.
    No we have not "met", i tend to stay away from that re incarnation of 4chan/hell/hive of angry lifeless demon spawn trolls known as "imdb", but you seem to be one of the only sane users on that site. (I only sighned up to (poorly) rate films (which i have lazily rated almost all of them 10 lol) but whatever.my user name is Optimus13.)

    Sure it does! Indiana Jones is a tough-as-nails guardian figure for Shia's Mutt Williams character, used to operating on his own in unfamiliar settings and cultures, who routinely wears yellow-ish clothes and who's great and handling himself in a fight, even if he might not seem that way. He guides Shia's character through an arc that revolves around growing up and learning to be a heroic figure, and helps him to understand the world around him and the wonders beyond his imagination that it contains.

    Just like Bumblebee.
