Why oh why does fucking Keanu have to be narrating that? Couldn't they just have Siri or one of those other phone voices do it instead? That would've been better. 

Keanu has that perfect narrator's monotone and he has earned enough badassery stripes to narrate the documentary celebrating the life of a badass like Mifune.

Badassery stripes from...? (Sorry, haven't watched John Wick yet, and The Matrix doesn't count IMO. Nor any other character he's played)

His weapon training @ Taran Tactical for the gunfight scenes in John Wick 2.

That's live ammo.

The slo mo part is a bit misleading.  It looks like he's clearing a jam but he is actually loading a stage saver.  He has one target to go in that stage, but he is one shell short of the number of targets he needs to hit.

Rather than lower his weapon for a full reload, he flips one more shell from the handguard through his fingers, loads it into the breech, fires, and hits his last shot.  His manual dexterity is sick.

His devotion to making John Wick look totally believable on screen borders on being unhealthy, but damn can that dude fucking shoot.

I just watched "For The Love Of Spock", the Leonard Nimoy doc done by his son. It's on Netflix. It's fucking tremendous. Everyone needs to see it. And make sure you have some Kleenex near you when you check it out. I had to use my sleeve like a three year old, and I just bought this shirt . And that was for tears of both joy and sadness. But mostly joy.

I know just a nomination is added exposure for Documentaries that may garner an expanded audience from one, but is there honestly any doubt as to what's taking home the statue this year?
