If you watch The Doors 1991 DVD, which I recommend there's a documentary on it about about the 1991 Doors movie, but also about the real Lizard King Jim Morrison, they interview Doors piano player Ray Manzarek and he essentially says: "Jim Morrison was more than a wild man in skin-tight leathers." Which of course was true, but his rocker/cowboy wardrobe and attitude was a huge part of The Lizard King and attitude. 

During that 1966/67-69 period Jim Morrison was seen everywhere in his black and sometimes brown skin-tight leather jeans, cowboys boots and concho belt, as well as his black leather suit jacket that he wore with his leather jeans. He obviously performed practically everywhere in that outfit, he did interviews, he partied, he traveled, in his free time he wore those pants and boots. 

That is what Oliver Stone picked up upon when he put together his 1991 movie about Jim Morrison. He has about a hour of footage in a two-hour and twenty-minute film about Jim Morrison (with Val Kilmer playing Morrison) in his patented skin-tight black leather jeans and cowboys boots, as well as concho belt. Performances, interviews, parties, even at weddings and churches. You see The Lizard King in his famous Lizard King uniform. The superhero of rock and roll.

Certainly one of the most memorable concerts from The Doors because it was in Hollywood, at The Hollywood Bowl, it was in color, summer of 1968, part of a very crazy and chaotic year and chaotic decade (at least the late 1960s) and The Doors, certainly Jim Morrison represented this era, time and generation as well as it could be represented. 

America was in transition in the 1960s from the Leave it To Beaver 1950s where men were expected to work, get married, have kids and continue to work. Where women were expected to just get married and then stay home and raise their kids. 

By the 1960s the Baby Boomers started coming of age and becoming young adults. And didn't want their parents Leave it To beaver lifestyle and didn't see everything in black and white, including most of the entertainment. And wanted to break out and create their own American culture and lifestyle. Ways of doing things and living and Jim Morrison I believe almost perfectly represents what this generation was going through back then.

The Fast and The Furious is not one of my favorite movies. It is not even one of my favorite movies of this century so far. Which is saying something, because most of the top movies of this era at least in popularity are based on style, what is considered hot, awesome, OMG or whatever. I think you get the idea and special effects as well. 

Modern movies like TFTF which aren’t based on writing, acting and plot, don’t tend to impress me. But I do like Michelle Rodriguez, not just physically as a gorgeous, baby-faced, sexy woman, but as an actress as well. And I like Vine Diesel purely as an actor and these two characters and how they relate in this movie are really the only thing that impresses me about this movie. And they look great together and communicate very well together. They simply go well together as you see in this scene.
