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.

+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.

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.

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.
