    I enjoyed the video but the small “funny” editings of things being said in the movie clip in beween sentaces of the speaker are unneccesary, they only distract.

    I'd really love to hear your thoughts on Christian Slater's voice in Heathers. I don't know exactly what accent he was going for, but some of his mannerisms I think are very interesting!

    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.

  • Louie Neira

    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.

  • Sam Borley

    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 8 days ago +1

      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.
