Hi there folks..

Did anyone else notice in the movie Tower Heist when Ben Stiller goes to evict Matthew Broderick from his room the symbolism...??

At first when the camara panned around the hotel room Broderick was due for eviction from i thought nothing of anything..

Then i noticed lots of childrens toys and paintings and colorings on the the camara moved to one corner of the room i noticed a childs drawing...

The pyramid and all seeing eye above it.. I thought maybe just a coincidence but then a few days later it occured to me that there were three kids tents in the same room...set up in a pyramid style...

It was obvious to me that this symbolism was to do with Egypt, the pyramids and the all seeing eye..

Anyone else catch this?
I havnt thought about the full context of the movie in terms of symbolism just that particular part stood out to me.

By the way newbie here

I'm sure I'll catch it but yeah dude, once you're awake you notice all these signs/symbols and even messages that seem to originate to those jerk offs. It's quite easy to pick them out because they are so obvious at times, they can be in video games, television/commercials and in movies. They own large parts of these industries so of course they're going to slap their symbols/signs everywhere but what can we do about this? Nothing really, we just get the burden of pointing it out and looking down in distaste.

I found a link here ( )

You will need to forward to
10:23 &10:42 to see the two clips I'm speaking of..

I'm not sure if someone knows how to get some still images from these clips so they can post them direct on this thread (would be much appreciated)
