    Jennifer Lawrence does what I call "a general nonexistent Eastern European accent"

    Evil ConCarne Any way of speaking that’s drastically different than what one is used to and refined in is always gonna be difficult.

    To me, she sounds so Vietnamese. I’m Vietnamese and my aunties speak this way especially with the buh and duh sounds and the sort of whiny vowel sounds. A lot of people make fun of Vietnamese accents but it doesn’t really bother me. Tbh it’s funny even more so when it is accurate.

    I love his casual Xhosa flex during the wakanda section, as he actually does the correct click. I'd love to see a video of him just doing some accents for fun and talking about them.

    As a young Xhosa woman. Them speaking isiXhosa made me very happy that such an ancient and complex language is being spoken in such a big movie. And south africans were in the movie a well. And Basotho people and everything!!!!

    @Fachy Marin Estuve en italia durante dos meses, despues de esos dos meses ahi la gente me ecia que casi ni tenia acento al final. Cuando volvi a casa y me escucharon habalr italiano me dijeron que parecia argentina hablando italiano... la verdad es que son muy parecidos

  • Alice Finardi yesterday

    @Gunther Vero, peró Donatella parla veramente in quel modo, sbiascicando le parole e anche la S é un po' sibila. Secondo me l'unico momento in cui si sente tanto lo spagnolo é quando fa "creator"e "collector"

    I love when people know a ridiculous amount about obscure things. Now I’m going to binge these vids

    My Tuyen Phan Ah, I find that the term “inconsequential” may not encapsulate the feeling you’re trying to encapsulate. Doesn’t the premise of your argument stand on the foundation that knowledge in any subject whether common or uncommon, is never “obscure”. The word inconsequential suggests that the knowledge is of little importance or use. I’m sure that being knowledgeable about underground Peruvian artists would be of great use to, let’s say, an anthropologist with a doctorate degree that studies Sou...

  • My Tuyen Phan 1 months ago

    Kammy Hornsby I would disagree with the word choice as obscure have certain connotations that don’t necessarily fit with the feeling I think you’re trying to encapsulate. A better word might be niche since it’s such a specific area of expertise but obscure would imply random and inconsequential like knowing obscure facts about underground Peruvian artists.

    This guy is seriously incredible, but mate, someone has to give recognition to the editing it’s just so spot on.

    When you're fluent in using the software, it's usually easy. I guess it comes with experience.
