heh, nicely done

I enjoyed that much more than expected

Not sure what a Pete Holmes is, but I'll be looking for him in the future.

Decent, but his Prof X was more Dr Evil

Wolverine's healing factor means you can take reckless risks with him.  No medical issues to worry about.
 
2013-10-15 04:12:08 PM
Heh, that was funny.

And impressive graphics on the claws. How can a 3 min comedy piece look so good, and the actual Hollywood Wolverine movie production look so terrible?

Also, now that I watched it again the guy playing Professor X sounds like Bad Man.

Wolverine would get thrown over the ravine by Collosus.

I don't think they've thrown him yet in the movies, but people did fairly often in the comics.

MugzyBrown: Decent, but his Prof X was more Dr Evil


At least he wasn't British... everyone gives Costner shiat for playing Robin Hood with an American accent, but no one says boo about Patrick Stewart not putting on a New York accent.

Isn't he Oxford educated from a young age? Wouldn't that amount of time around others at Oxford incline him to start speaking with an English accent?

Only if he does so as an affectation.  He doesn't go to Oxford until after graduating from Harvard at 16.  He does spend several in London and might take on certain inflections, but not to the point of sounding British.  I know several people from the UK that have been in the US for a decade or more, yet they retain their accents.

Maybe Professor X just likes the way it sounds...for the ladies, of course. Or, just spit-ballin'...he is like Stewie, who for all intents and purposes, should sound like Ted Kennedy but instead sounds like Rex Harrison, just cuz.

More importantly, why doesn't Superman sound Kansian? He damn well spent more than enough time there...
Also, how much time did Wolverine spend in Canada, eh? What's that all aboot?
Why does New Mexican Walter White sound like a monster from Power Rangers?

you got the right movie they established the 'fastball special' in the opening scene, the danger room simulation against a Sentinel.

Logan: [to Colossus] Hey, Tin Man! Come here! How's you're throwing arm?

Ororo Munroe: Logan, we work as a team.

Logan: Yeah, good luck with that. Throw me. Now!

Ororo Munroe: Damn it, Logan! Don't do this!

Logan: [Colossus grabs Logan and throws at the incoming Sentinel robot, Logan slices off its head and it falls to the ground; he comes from behind the giant head] Class dismissed.

I know, I'm just being playful and snarky.

I honestly chalk it up to it just sounds better, same with why Superman doesn't talk like a stereotypical southerner.

However, you did not address my Superman nor Wolverine question. Now I haz sad.

By the by, what affectation does grumpy cat have? I imagine Michael Clarke Duncan...thoughts?

Sure, here goes...
Superman: Wanted to seem like "everyman" so he (subconsciously, perhaps) adopted the most generic, non-specific accent he could
Wolverine: Used to have a Canuck accent, but lost it when he lost his memory.  There are cases of people who have had head trauma waking up speaking with accents from places they haven't ever lived.
Michael Clarke Duncan is dead, so, um, Avery Brooks?

Lauren Cohan is from New Jersey, moved to England as a teenager, and yet always speaks with an English accent.

Kinda, she has a muddy accent.  It's slightly stronger than that of a friend of mine who was born in Canada, then raised in New Zealand, then back to Canada, then the South Pacific (can't remember which island offhand, Solomons perhaps) and then finally the U.S. for the last couple of decades.  His accent is all over the place.

You just got favorited, since you kept up with my fun discussion...but to combat you...

Superman: What does generic, non-specific mean? Everyone has an accent to someone else...unless, Superman subconsciously affects his accent for each and every person he involves himself with so as to appear "normal".

Wolverine: Accepted, he could have lost his accent, if in fact he spoke Canadian-style, Unless, of course, different Canadians sound different to one another. Such as Nova Scotians to Albertans to Montrealans...but no one believes in Canadans anyway since they mythological creatures.

Grumpy Cat was alive to know MCD and since his spirit lives on, I stay firm with that...though I think he might sound like the giant fire-breathing cockroach from Family Guy. "Good, good..."

Beyond that, since they are super-heroes, we choose to hear whatever accents we want. Rorschach is French, Batman is Middle-Eastern, I'm thinking Persian, and Aquaman actually sounds like a dolphin, which is why no one likes him.

In the realm of the "American accent", there is the "generic" accent, which is commonly called "midwestern" and is what you hear from most newscasters.  If he took this quiz:
http://www.gotoquiz.com/results/what_american_accent_do_you_have 
he'd get this:
"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

I know this one.

In an outtake or a deleted scene, it's revealed that Wayne put a voice modulator in his suit over his throat to deliberately sound that way.  In part, to distort his voice and disguise it, and also to intimidate criminals.
