    I'm not convinced that Téa Leoni ever closes her mouth in Bad Boys. I don't mean that she keeps talking it's just that her mouth has been constantly opened.

    Lucy Lawless is cute enough and I like her, but when she talks I get a bad case of cultural cringe. This is perfectly normal for NZers though, as we are weird like that. We basically hate our accent but don't care to change it

    Yeah, it would be good to know more about that kind of thing, but I never had enough free credits to take Sociology papers at uni.

    The one paper I did take on the topic was of the firm opinion (or the lecturer at least), that NZers (using standard mimic based studies) are the only primary English speakers (as a nation) where the native speakers to do not see their particular accent as more prestigious/ worthy than the common alternatives (Basic American, British, Australian, Canadian etc)

    places that aren't america have high background levels of Foreign particles that are known to cause accent growth in humans

    yeah me too

    I watched it, didn't get what the fuss was about, read a bunch of shit, understood that I missed so fucking much in the movie, watched it again, and then talked about it a lot.

    now I'm a fan, but I always say 'watch it twice'

    Despicable Me was incredibly formulaic, and felt like it was formulaic for the sake of being formulaic.

    Southern accepts generally sound like DURR HERP DERP to Europeans, but most other American accents are fine. (While spoken at normal volume.)

    American accents sound.. very blunt. Not stupid, just blunt.

    Very seldom do you expect any subtlety from an American accent.

    It's difficult to describe.


    I've got an international school accent, I wonder how I sound - Brits think American or sometimes Scottish/Irish, Americans think British, everyone says I have perfect English though.

    Funny thing is that pretty much all people who've gone to international schools growing up sound exactly the same, no matter where they went to school.

    I was expecting something like Shutter Island in how, on the rewatch, you're given an entirely new perspective, which given the sci-fi subject matter was totally a possibility to me.

    I thought there was more to the "watch it twice!" thing is all.

    Nah, it's just a case of the ending of Primer being "oh yeah, we forgot to tell you all this stuff - look how the narrative suddenly makes sense"

    But then it doesn't and you need fifteen fucking graphs to figure it all out.

    I watched the movie once, spoke with my friend about it while we browsed the wiki article on it before we eventually concluded it was a dumb film never to be watched again.

    We say 'broodle' instead of brutal.

    And a few other little quirks like that.

    Otherwise, we sound American.

    For some reason a lot of British and European actors tend to adopt Southern accents when playing Americans even when it makes no sense in context. Christopher Plummer did a bit of this when he played Mike Wallace in The Insider and it was kind of grating because Mike Wallace is a real person who sounds about as Southern as my left nut.
