I get excited when he mentions my hometown Corpus Christi, only to realize that he called us East Texas. We're South Texas dammit! ..... carry on.

Real Russians would never say 'neveRRRR', they (we) would just say 'neve'. Also, an accent is only that bad when you hardly speak English. With Lawrence's perfect grammar and vocab (common mistake with movie 'foreigners'), she could not have possibly retained an accent like that. Also, Killing Eve's so-called 'Russian' is horrible beyond words. I just wish they hired someone who actually spoke the language and given the amount of Russians everywhere in the world, that should really not be a problem. In fact, it would be my dream job, now that I think about it!

As an American (near Charleston, SC), I would actually de-rhoticize that "KimBERley" vowel too, since it's an unstressed syllable in the middle of the word. I'd say it's natural.

06:52 "Some people thought this was an offensive stereotype". Why didn't people find all the other examples offensive stereotypes? I will bet those who thought it offensive were not Vietnamese. but white American "progressives". Give it a break.

I feel he glossed over Christopher Lamberts accent. Yeah it wasn't good, but the reason was that at the time, he barely spoke much English. his only other English film had been Greystroke, where he played Tarzan and had hardly any lines. He was learning English as he filmed, and learning a 'Scottish' accent as well.

If you spend time in Australia you'll quickly learn that the accent majority of these actors are using only fits a very niche group of Australians, Our country is very multicultural thus the lines between a true blue Aussies accent (The voice the are all trying to pull off) and say 3rd or 4th generation Australian accent sound completely different. I challenge you to walk through any public area in Australia and actually listen to our accent, My guess is that around 1 in 20 perhaps would sound like this, the vast majority of us sound completely different!

Matthew Rhys' first language was Welsh -- not English. So the fact that he does his accent so well is a testament to his skill. Also, Christopher Lambert didn't speak English when he was cast in Highlander. So the fact that it's awful is a testament to Hollywood's idiocy.

As an Italian I wouldn't say that Penelope Cruz did a great job with the accent; good but not great. She also speaks italian so, yeah, she knew her stuff but the main problem is how she pronounces the double letters. Italians always pronounce both of the letters: like the word "letter" would be "let-ter". And that's the difference with Spanish (which has a lot of similarities with Italian, by the way) and with so many other languages: English, German, Russian... Also the letter R is different: the Spanish R is stronger, more like a cat purr, I would say. About the taratarata...I think that's very regional: the coach pattern for the Spanish taratata sounds way more similar to my Italian than the one that he attributes to a correct Italian sound. We have so many dialects in Italy that in a span of 30 km there might be significant variations in terms of tone and vocabulary in the local dialect.

just saw your Brad Pitt accent critique on Snatch, Pitt was doing a Dublin Gipsy accent, not a Belfast accent. Belfast is not Ireland. Research is lacking here. You have mistaken Belfast accents for Irish accents in other regions of the country and you have done this in other Youtube clips too.  See your critique on Cruise's accent on Far and Away. You are the accent coach. Have you ever coached an Irish accent?
