Hi to all at izismile.com. I am newbie, but after reading posts here, i can say that you have such nice community here, so assorted nice members.
Genially, i want to discuss Transformers 2 action movie. I watched it yesterday in Imax, and was very impressed. from the first minute till the end this action really takes your breathe. Sure, huge money spent on this amazing action, such great producers worked on it, all this computer effects... And ofcourse, Megan Fox... What do you think about this movie, did you like it? Your favorite scene? How do you think will be there 3 part, and about what?
