Reasons why you should watch the Fast & Furious movies!

It’s NOT just “fast cars” and “scantily-clad girls”

If you want more in-depth view of diversity and strong female character presence in this franchise, check out my two posts below:

And make sure to go watch the movies! GO!

And watch all the behind the scenes, watch how they make the movies, listen to the director/writer commentaries!

BONUS! Even the directors are diverse in race

  • Rob Cohen - white - Fast 1
  • John Singleton - african american - Fast 2
  • Justin Lin - asian - Fast 3,4,5,6
  • James Wan - asian - Fast 7

This franchise is proof that action films can just as easily give great representation and focus on character relationships!

Take this quote from Justin Lin, director of Fast 3,4,5,6

"We can go around the world and do these crazy stunts and scope and everything but ultimately it’s to service the journey home"

Or the quote from Chris Morgan, writer of Fast 3,4,5,6,7

"The overriding theme of this franchise has always been about family - when it really comes down to is the people around you, and it is the place that you call home" 

And even despite the tragic passing of founding member Paul Walker, the cast and crew behind the franchise is determined to continue the films not only in his honor because of his passion for the franchise but also because they know how important representation and diversity is for future generations - as actor Tyrese Gibson puts it:

There’s no way [Paul] would want the franchise to shut down because the movie is successful for a reason. If you all could just show up and look at somebody in the movie that you identify with then the global impact of the movie must continue on behalf of the franchise”

How do you know you’re in love?

  • —COMMON: Man, I know I’m in love when I think about her a lot and I’m finding ways to get to that person. Even though I gotta work, even though I gotta take care of other responsibilities, I’m like yo, when am I gonna fly out and see that person? I look forward to seeing them.
  • —KENDRICK LAMAR: How do you know you’re in love? When your heart feels it instead of your mind and your penis don’t. You know, it’s deeper than that… That’s when you know.
  • —PETE ROCK: Oh man you feel it right here, *touches heart*, right there, it’s like cupid’s shooting you in the heart, that shit’s just BOOW! Lots of people say they don’t believe in love at first sight, but I do, it’s happened to me.
  • —A$AP ROCKY: You know you in love cuz you don’t want nobody else but that person. You know, that’s how you know for sure. Like you could see a million other bad bitches, but you know, but it don’t even matter, you stuck.
  • —BIG BOI: Your heart flutters a little bit, you like to kiss on the mouth a lot, your neck get hot when you kiss on the mouth, that type of stuff. Stuff like that, yea.
  • —QUESTLOVE: I THINK WHEN THAT PERSON CONSUMES YOU.
