I mean, basically. If you boil it down to its essence. Allow me a moment to explain. The first thing you have to understand is that there's some VERY interesting color coding going on in this movie. As mentioned elsewhere, the color YELLOW is definitely the KEY to understanding John Malkovitch's character [http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...10437-bruce-brazos-bumblebee-100-serious.html ], just as the RED and BLUE energy patterns of the Pillars may be the key to understanding THEM [http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...52-connection-between-pillars-earths-h20.html], and -- bear with me here -- yes, the RED cup "freakout" scene is THE KEY TO THE ENTIRE FILM. Haha, shut up, damnit...I'm being serious here. So, how does that go again? Pretty much everything's going fine & dandy until suddenly Sam's soon-to-be boss FREAKS OUT because he spots a RED cup on the YELLOW floor of his business. "Why is Shontel using what appears to be a RED cup from the RED floor when we are on the YELLOW floor?!? It is a VISUAL and therefore a VISCERAL BETRAYAL. STOP IT." Hmm. And what color is Sentinel Prime again? O_O Damn. Easily some of the sneakiest, yet blatantly-obvious-in-hindsight foreshadowing in the entire movie. PURE AWESOMENESS.
