The Earth is caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between two races of robots, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons. All that stands between the Decepticons and ultimate power is a clue held by young Sam Witwicky. Unaware that he is mankind's last chance for survival, Sam and Bumblebee, his robot disguised as a car, are in a race against an enemy unlike anything anyone has seen before.

No matter what anyone says: I absolutely love this movie and it will always be my favorite one of all time!

It may not be the best movie with the most brilliant story, but I literally grew up with it and it still keeps me inspired and joyful! 
 I always have a great time watching this movie - seriously it should be rather called an action-comedy :'D - and due to all those magnificent animations, fantasy-elements, etc., I also get tons of inspiration which is essential for an artist, not to mention that the whole thing is just pure art from scratch (oh if only I could get my hands on an official art-of-book Q_Q).

Additionally, Steve Jablonsky delivered one of the most epic soundtracks of all time and did I mention that my favorite band Linkin Park contributed music as well? ;)

And as if this wasn't enough, the movie also obviously satisfies my proclivity for nice cars. Come on, who wouldn't fall for the sexy black cruiser Barricade - 2007 Saleen S281 Extreme Ford Mustang ♥ Someday, I'll own this car! :D

Mathilda's family gets killed in cold blood. She is almost put to death as well, when her neighbour and hitman Léon helps her in the very nick of time. The young girl vows bitter vengeance and is able to persuade the melancholic man into helping her in this regard, but the enemy - the corrupt agent Stansfield - spikes their guns ...

I don't remember the exact date I got to know this awesome movie, but I do know that I loved Léon since my early childhood.

The plot and the characters are both very well arranged. It's definitely a rare cinematic masterpiece and if you haven't done it yet: go and watch it ;) !
