    I was wondering since I have not had the chance to see this movie yet how many people liked it?

    A good bit of the film was filmed on-board the ship I am on (CVN-74) during one of the det's we did.. I have been told that you can see me and a few of the people I work with in the movie (we are working on the flight deck in red shirts/camo pants)..

    Was pretty cool to meet all of the actors, Tyrese, Megan Fox, Shia Lebough.. Though Megan Fox was pretty un-sociable, would not take pics or sign autographs.. Nothing!

    Tyrese was pretty cool. He even went to the extent as to perform a small concert with an iPod and a karoake setup for the whole ships crew..

    The camera crews were crazy, we had to watch them closely so they would not get run over by jets or blown off the flight deck by exhaust..

    Was a pretty cool experience.. Anyone else been background extras for movies?

    I have been reading a lot of reviews saying this movie sucked but I loved it, I thought it was awesome, but maybe that is the little kid in me. It had a lot of funny parts in it. My girlfriend hated it but I loved it. It was pretty long but I thought it was worth it.

    I never read movie reviews. Those people reviewing it are old and don't know action and what the majority of people want. Transformers 2 was badass.

    She is smokin hott in my opinion, I know some people disagree. Shia was pretty cool, he screamed like a girl in a couple scenes but I guess it also made him look like a bad ass in some spots.

    I wouldn't care that Megan wouldn't sign anything. She's gorgeous. The movie was pretty good. The Camaro is awesome. The Vette is bad. And Megan's in it. The story wasn't that great, but still a good movie.

    I watched it last night, it was okay but I expected something better, they introduced new characters "autobots" but they did not do much only the twins. What I liked about the first movie is that you had all this things going on at the same time and you were not watching sam and mikaela the whole time. I expected a better plot this one was kind of dumb. I also think that it was dumb that they revived megatron with a piece of the allspark and sam needed the matrix to revive optimus when he had a piece of the allspark too, so they spent most of the movie trying to find the matrix to revive optimus when he could have done it with something he already had. If I remember correctly at the end of the first movie when they drop megatron at sea they say the remaining would olbviously be crushed by pressure yet they were not......

    The battles were awesome specially optimus fighting various decepticons, obviously the vehicles used in the movie, it had its funny moments like the first one etc etc, but I preffer the first one over this one, much better made.

    Well, after everyone was on-board the ship i met the director, most of the camera crews, and set designers.. Megan and Shia pretty much stayed to themselves, didn't interact with anyone, didn't do autographs and canceled their photo opportunities with the crew.. They were pretty stuck up and rude.

    Megan Fox is definitely gorgeous and up until the point of seeing her in person was one of my top 5. She is seriously anorexic and has a bad personality it seems.

    Tyrese and the other guy (the marine in the movie) were the coolest.. They got some flight suits from our pilots and ran around the ship hangin out with everyone, ate in the galley with the crew, tyrese did a small concert and they signed autographs and did photo's with everyone. They even stayed on the ship an extra 3 days after the crews left to hang out with everyone.

    The movie does look pretty good though, I definitely cant wait to check it out. :cool:

    The other guy is Josh Duhamel, I heard is a pretty cool guy. Thats cool that at least they hung out with everyone. Megan does have that look of being really stuck up. Thats pretty cool you got to meet them and what not though. Probably gave you guys a nice break from the same ol routine huh?

    Even though I enjoyed it, I thought it was a pretty bad movie. The action scenes kicked ass but the plot and writting blew a fat one.

    However all it takes for movies to make money nowadays is explosions, babes and action.
