Seeing all those examples makes me feel bad for people that cant speak english so well to watch a movie in the OV. You really miss out a lot of voice acting when watching subbed versions.

"English Accent"

>Kevin Costner's Ameri-English
I feel dirty watching this.

I wanna see him pull apart Rob Schneider’s Pidgin accent in 50 First Dates-that’s Hawaiian slang for whoever doesn’t know

There are a lot of differences in Souther accents. South Carolina, for instance sounds more English than Souther US which I hear in Georgia and Florida. The Southern/West VA/Western PA accent is incredible and undefinable.

Belfast? Far and Away Irish scenes were set in Galway, and filmed mostly outside Dublin. The accents were bad but Northern Ireland didn’t enter into it. Makes me question how much of an expert this guy is.

Movie accent expert has no clue what a Belfast accent is , kind of discredits him.

Snatch is not a Belfast accent, it's an Irish English traveler accent - Irish travellers living and likely born in England

Best ever was Meryl Streep doing an Australian accent when playing Lindy Chamberlain. (and yes, I'm Australian)

To be fair, Brad Pitts' character in 7 years in Tibet is Austrian, not German!

BELFAST. YES. I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT. It’s really not a good accent but I’m so glad we were actually included 😂

DiCaprio is such a joke. He can't handle an accent and he's NEVER been able to.

I would love to see Erik Singer do a critique of the accents used on Burn Notice. There was practically a new accent used in every episode.

About russian accent, why in films all Russians can speak english well, but have very hard accent?
I mean a lot of us speak worse but sound better.

Robin Hood took place in the 13th century! It shouldn't sound anything like a modern English accent.

Belfast accent? Come on man. Tom Cruise's character was s Kerry man, but he's playing it as a stage Irishman, which was much mocked in Ireland. Brad Pitt in Snatch was an Irish traveller and it was kind of OK, he played a Belfast man in the devils own but I just don't remember it that well.

becuz of the entertainment industry I can NOT Stand the british accent anymore.... the Lord of the Rings ..all of them.. and the Hobbit all of them... great movies but i spent more time making fun of the way the actors speak in them... why didn't you pick apart those actors in those movies.. it would take hours i am sure... and why do they assume that everyone speaks with a stupid sissy like british accent back in MEDIEVAL days? if you have the movies playing and your not actually watching them but only listening.. the way they speak is like scratching a chalkboard... this isn't about sounds but remember when Aragorn is above that guy full of arrows, the one that took it for Mary and his brother... when he almost does the crucifiction thing that catholics do but then caught himself oh i wish they had cut that part out or redone it.. or the same scene but when Legolas walks up and makes that face that dogs make when they hear someone cry like them.. you know the head tilt and the oh how sad ...... if you want to continue liking those movies make sure you don't buy them and watch them one to many times

It's almost like Brad Pitt's career is dedicated to proving accents actually aren't that important for delivering great performances or memorable characters. Same with Tom Hardy.

They say "Belfast accent" multiple times, but there is no Belfast accent present in this video.

One thing to note, DiCaprio did nothing wrong in Blood diamond, if I remember correctly he is an American who comes to Africa to trade for diamonds he is not a native speaker and shouldn’t sound perfect

"Really good"? The Polish accent was absolute rubbish and had nothing in common with how Poles speak.

Different russians can't speak english in same way. We have different languages and RUSSIAN accents inside our country. You can't decide which actor do it wright or not

As a southerner, I can say the vast majority of actors can not affect a real sounding southern accent.
