Flick Friday: F is for … 

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Sports, Technology, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 05/01/2015 at 12:00

Fast & Furious 🏁 * Full Force 💥 * Family 👪 * Friendship 🌈

The sky is the limit in Furious 7 as the gang take on sworn enemy Shaw ~ living by their mantra: 💭
 
Ride or Die 👊
  
As Turetto would say:
 

I have a group of racers, NOT killers. 🔫

    

  

Super Car Pre-Race🚗 Paraphrase🌇 [not exact lines]
  • Brian (the late, great Paul Walker): $3.4 million, goes 0-60 in less than 3 seconds, & there are only 7 in the world. 🌏
  • Dom (Vin Diesel): You can’t lock up a beast. 🐯 

  

Leadership Lessons [since I study and teach it]

Roman (Tyrese Gibson) is NOT an effective leader because 

  • insists on making decisions ~ authoritative 
  • claims to delegate ~ laissez faire = lazy 
  • stays on aircraft✈️ while the rest of his crew go airborne🚀 ~ lack of setting an example 

  

  

Speaking of leadership, the opening feature that Edwin and I watched at the Drive-In before our main event also showed lessons:

 

   Home 🏡 

 

This animation actually starred the vocals of actors Jon Parsons (Sheldon Cooper from CBS’ Big Bang Theory) and Steve Martin, plus singer-actresses Rihanna and J-Lo! 🗼 

Without revealing too much {I wouldn’t want to spoil it for the kiddos}, a seemingly-unlikely character eventually becomes an emerged leader whom his purple peers look up to over their appointed leader after showing them how valuable friendship (pink) and happiness (orange) can be! Plus, who doesn’t like to dance? 💃

Side note: Although F7 already has been out on the 🎬big screen🎥 for almost four solid weeks, this has been my first time to fit it into my schedule. Definitely. Worth. The. Wait. 🎦

Una más: Both of these aforementioned films featured exotic babes with curly ringlets: Home starred a native of Barbados who was a 😻cat🐈 mama (Happy Early Mother’s Day💐 to us as well), and Furious 7 had a hot hacker with a sizzling accent! Underlying theme of the night! 🌠🌙🌌
