    The Hobbit movies were really well done, in my opinion. The enhanced plot lines made a lot of sense. Mr. Freeman did a great job.


    I love Martin Freeman as an actor and have enjoyed his work for many years. But in my opinion, along with Benedict Cumberbatch, he has one of the worst American accents of any British actor. Except for Hugh Laurie.

    0:18 this kind of makes me feel sad about him, because sometimes it gets out from the line and everything can be a disaster. And the worst thing it's when that happens in social situations. Sometimes you realize about the error you just made, but it's not that easy to repair if we are talking about a social situation, because it kinda influences the idea of you from another person or persons...

    this is brilliant. The discussion is adult and fun and understood. But there are people who will taking this completely insultingly. Cause it's all kinda "racist" but really... it isn't.

    British people have more access and widespread exposure to american culture and dialect and media than the other way around. that’s why we aren’t as good at british accents as they are at american accents.

    6 min.thirty talking about accents.... boooring... what's about American interviewers who keep asking to British actors about how they can speak "American" so well... same questions, same answers ! What's so interesting about English or American accents? Maybe it's because I've studied English for all my life and I've found extremely annoying the differences in pronunciation of the same long as I understand , English or American..., for me it's ok...
