Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
This is one of the short featurettes on the DVD of Team America: World Police, going into a specific area of said film. In this case, it's pyro-technics, and several scenes have the secret behind their explosions revealed, and this is both interesting, and, well, fun. Come on, doesn't everybody, deep down, get some measure of joy from seeing something blow up? Even if they don't want to admit it. This consists of interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and clips of the movie. Matt and Trey don't say a lot, but the guy behind the flames and more does, and he's entertaining, so I'm not complaining. This is not very long, and due to the cool-ness factor of the majority of what fills the screen during that time, it seems to fly by even faster. It's around 5 minutes from start to finish, of an object-smashing, explained-destruction, guided tour through the world of cinematic demolition. And give Joe Visckocil a warm welcome, will you? No, I'm not quitting my day job. I recommend this to anyone who liked TA, especially the parts where things go boom. 7/10
