John Wick 3: Keanu Reeves Gears Up For The Titular Role With The Help of U.S Navy Seals

The most impressive aspect of the John Wick movie franchise is those jaw-droppingly flawless gun battles. The marvelously orchestrated gun ballet doesn’t just happen. Keanu Reeves puts in a ton of work and many hours understanding and executing those brilliant shootout scenes. Videos of Reeves being trained in shootout tactics and strategies have been released and they are so very interesting to watch. Shawn Ryan is a former Navy SEAL and CIA contractor who started his own company to teach people a variety of tactical training. His company, Vigilance Elite, normally gives instruction on how normal people can protect themselves.
In these videos, Ryan is holding class so that Keanu Reeves can portray a lethal assassin while also looking legitimate doing so.The gun training videos give us a glimpse as to what John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum might look like, at least when it comes to those incredibly choreographed gunfights. This behind-the-scenes footage shows just how dedicated Reeves …

Tupac Is Alive According To A New Photo

IF TUPAC SHAKUR WAS ALIVE RIGHT NOW, HE WOULD BE TURNING 48-YEARS-OLD ON JUNE 16, 1971. ACCORDING TO A CONSPIRACY THEORY, TUPAC SHAKUR IS NOT ONLY ALIVE, BUT THEY CLAIM TO HAVE A PHOTO THAT “PROVES” THAT THE LEGENDARY RAPPER DIDN’T DIE.

TUPAC SHAKUR DIED ON SEPTEMBER 13, 1996, AFTER SUCCUMBING TO HIS FOUR GUNSHOT WOUNDS HE SUFFERED FROM A DRIVE-BY SHOOTING IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, SIX DAYS EARLIER. OR AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TOLD TO BELIEVE. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE TUPAC SHAKUR, WHO WAS BORN LESANE PARISH CROOKS, NEVER DIED AND IS STILL ALIVE TO THIS DAY.

CONSPIRACY THEORIES CONTEND THAT SHAKUR FAKED HIS DEATH SO THAT HIS ENEMIES WOULD THINK HE WAS DEAD. THERE HAVE BEEN ALLEGED TUPAC SIGHTINGS IN CUBA AT A BOSTON CELTICS GAME, DRINKING HAND GRENADES IN NEW ORLEANS, AT THE BET AWARDS, AND KIM KARDASHIAN SWORE SHE SPOTTED TUPAC. SUGE KNIGHT’S SON SAID SHAKUR WAS STILL ALIVE AND LIVING IN MALAYSIA.


THE NEWEST “TUPAC IS ALIVE” SIGHTING DOESN’T GIVE THE LOCATION OR THE DATE OF THIS …

Nintendo Plans To Re-Release ‘Punch-Out!!’ Without Mike Tyson

In the mid-1980s, Mike Tyson had started to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in the boxing world and caught the attention of a Nintendo executive who was in the stands at one of his fights.
In 1987, the world was introduced to Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, a game that would go on to frustrate an entire generation of children like myself who were still working on perfecting that whole “hand-eye coordination” thing.
In order to beat the game, you had to be able to channel your inner Patches O’Houlihan and dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge Tyson’s brutal flurry of punches, which was much easier said than done.

Nintendo is planning to re-release the game on Switch later this month.
However, there’s one minor catch: Mike Tyson won’t be making his return.
Nintendo originally only licensed the boxer’s name for three years, and after that, he was replaced by a character dubbed “Mr. Dream,” who had all the same moves but sorely lacked any gaps between his te…

'GRACE: The Jeff Buckley Story' | Graphic Novel out April 30

California, 1991. All his life, people have told Jeff Buckley how much he looks like his father, the famous ’60s folksinger he barely knew. But Jeff believes he has gifts of his own: a rare, octave-spanning voice and a songwriting genius that has only started to show itself. After he falls in love with a mysterious girl in New York, he sets out to make a name for himself outside his father’s shadow.

What follows are six turbulent years of music, heartbreak, hope, and daring - culminating in a tragedy that’s still reverberating in the music world today.

Written by Tiffanie DeBartolo, with art by Pascal Dizin and Lisa Reist, this graphic novel tells the heartfelt journey of Buckley - his rise from Sin-é and worldwide acclaim, to his settling in Memphis and accidental death - beautifully illustrated in a warm tone, to highlight his gracious personality juxtaposed with his horrific early end. “This story is more than just a story about Jeff’s life," DeBartolo explains. "It’s al…

Memphis Express' Johnny Manziel Responds To Eminem’s Request To Add Fighting To The Alliance Of American Football

Eminem tweeted a request to the Alliance of American Football. He would really like to see the new football league be more like the NHL and allow fighting to take place during games.
DEAR @THEAAF,
PLEASE ENTERTAIN THIS THOUGHT REGARDING THE @AAFIRON @AAFEXPRESS GAME: ALLOWING THE PLAYERS TO ACTUALLY FIGHT WOULD BE KEY TO LEAGUE’S SUCCESS LIKE HOCKEY, I WOULD WATCH EVERY GAME (EVEN THOUGH THERE IS NO DETROIT TEAM YET – HINT). DON’T BLOW IT.
SINCERELY,
MARSHAL

As for Detroit getting an AAF team, Charlie Ebersol, the founder of the league and current CEO, is all ears.
Detroit is not a bad idea for a future franchise. Let me know if you want in on it. — Charlie Ebersol (@CharlieEbersol) March 26, 2019
