    I might be one of the few who can't stomach a British accent. What is the point of it anyway? That's one reviewer I wont subscribe.

    Again, what?

    That's like asking why somebody from Japan has a Japanese accent, or why somebody from Ireland has an Irish accent.

    And you're missing out on one the best Transformers reviewers on YouTube.

    Never asked why in regards to that statement. It was... whytf would someone make that video. It's a great thing we have opinions and choices!
    I'm sure there are plenty surrounding the Nezha toys.

    He made it for fun.
    It's not meant to be taken seriously.

    To be fair, the British Accent as we know it today didn't come around til the mid-19th century, when the British upper class created Received Pronunciation to separate themselves from the lower classes, and since then much of its characteristics have been spread to and changed for the various other British accents. According to linguistic historians, before that, most English speakers probably spoke in something much more akin to a modern American Southern accent.

    You do understand that he's purposefully mispronouncing all the names, right?

    Technically, that's not completely true. As you said, the RECEIVED PRONUNCIATION model (I think, mainly Germanic in origin), which is also known as "BBC English" or "The Queen's English", dropped the "rhotic r", but there are many parts of the UK that didn't, such as Scottish English, etc (and modern-day British English is VERY diverse, for such a small country). The traditional, Shakespearean English was thought to sound more like Cornish style English (similar to a stereotypical "farmer/Samwise Gangee/pirate" accent), which still uses a "rhotic r". The modern American accent though, is arguably as much removed from that accent, as the "BBC" model.

    Ehhh...It's more like saying it's okay to buy stolen goods if you never knew they were stolen, but even then copying isn't theft.

    A number of off topic posts have been removed, and this is a heads up that further political and/or religious discussion will be treated the same way.

    A little curious how we are supposed to continue with a Nezha discussion without religion. Toyline trolling the rules....

    I'm with primalxconvoy. I think you have listened too many times to the commonly-parroted half-truth half-lie that North American "rednecks" in Appalachian states speak pre-modern British English. It's a load of bull because pronunciation consists of dozens of aspects and no living accent can truly be "older" than another accent that is also alive in modern times.

    For my part, I have also heard the idea that Robbie Coltrane portraying southwest England-accented Rubeus Hagrid in Harry Potter is loosely similar to a Shakespeare-era accent of English, and not just from rhoticity alone.

    Separate the mythology from the religious aspects. Easy, on that front.
