I cringe everytime he says Texas 'cause as someone raised in Texas her whole life I was afraid that he would play a video of a really bad really stereotypical Texan accent.

My girlfriend noticed something in the Office, Idris Elba's character slips his English accent when he says "Nah, that's weird." It sounds more like "weeard."

The Xhosa accent is okay... she's forcing it a bit. She sounds more like a white South African sounds when they're trying to put on a Xhosa accent.

Wait. What part of Wakanda is South Africa. And hmmm makes sense that the most advanced and only African country with technology like that is in the only white African nation 😂
(I'm just playing. Erik singer is an excellent dialect coach and gives amazing analysis' of each performance. And he circled South Africa because the film's reference to its location was somewhere in
Southern Africa

People who got offended over the Vietnamese accent are a perfect example of people ignorantly jumping to conclusions. And I can almost guarantee that none of them were Asian.

Austin, TX and Corpus Christi TX aren't considered East Texas. Austin is Southwestern and Corpus is Southeastern. Houston would be considered East Texas.

Just so's you know, there's an ethnically black American southern accent somewhat different than white Texas/Oklahoma n accent. Subtle difference s everywhere. There's a valley girl California accent and a northern redwood accent.

Request: could you please analyze how horrible Sam Worthington's american accent was in Avatar?
Loved the movie. His attempt at an american accent was so off putting, I couldn't believe James Cameron let it slide.
While we're on the subject of James Cameron; his american accent in Terminator Salvation was absolutely dreadful as well.

So I found myself attempting a lot of these... saying house in a Belfast accent by using ice is genius. I would love his opinion on Jonny Lee Miller in Trainspotting because even the Scottish actors were surprised to find out he was English - he stayed in the accent throughout filming.

+Breanna Deal You're right. I lived in Brownsville, Texas until I was 4 years old. After that I lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico until I was 15 and now I live in Massachusetts. Even if I stayed in Texas I probably wouldn't have developed an accent because neither of my parents are Texan to begin with. I could have learned a variant of Spanish though.
Breanna Deal
Breanna Deal - 4 gün önce
There is no singular Texan accent. Your accent would have developed based on which part of Texas you lived in. And if you didn't live there for long (you just said born so I assume you weren't raised there) then you probably wouldn't have developed an accent.

please review Olga Kurylenko in James bond movie. Overall she did a pretty good job with "telenovela Spanish", only some of the "R"s give her away

i would rather have had this discuss less accent performances and go more in depth into each....feels rushed and we don't get much of an appreciation of each performance

I can still hear very very the Spanish in "Donatella" character way of speaking. I wouldn't consider that very good.
This is the most intriguing video I've seen all week. You should comment on my accent, Minnesohhhtan. :) We definitely talk different here doncha knoh.

As a native Texan, I'm impressed that he picks up on the accent difference between East Texas and West Texas. Not many people would notice something that subtle.

jgibman1 - 11 gün önce
You have to be very attentive to pick up on such subtleties. I've noticed in your videos when an actor does a terrible job with the accent prior to your comment your inner eyebrows point in an upward direction and it's hilarious. I turned the volume down to take a phone call and when I went back to watch it again you were ripping into the actors every time.

Southern accents vary massively even within the same region. In general, they’re overdone. Usually they sound like an actor using an accent no matter what nationality they are. One thing is if they slip once, they’re caught. Rick Grimes first slip was on “scientist”. If you’re southern and watched it, u know exactly what I mean. Soooo funny tho

Of course particularly with Matt and the Afflecks we get a lot of Boston movies, but all of New England has many different accents for such a small place with small states. He could do a segment just about New England-set films and pick apart all the actor's accent mistakes and successes.

I'm a New Zealander - the characteristics he says Elisabeth Moss is missing are not present in my accent. If she's playing a more metropolitan character she won't need them, if she's playing a more rural character she will. I haven't actually seen the film so I don't know.
