as a serial killer my name would be the suspense so my victims would be like “oh no, the suspense is killing me” and we would both laugh right before i killed them
map of British accents!!
How can a country smaller than montana have so many fucking accents?
this is why we say please do not talk about a “british accent” thank
And these are only the main ones, sometimes they can be done town by town or village by village.
By dad once went to a meeting in London and because of his accent a complete stranger knew which village in Yorkshire he was from.
The thing about the somerset accent is that everyone in and around somerset can do it by just saying the word cider
You mean “Zoy-derr” right?
Ah, the home counties (South East). You know that accent the rest of the world thinks is “British” it’s that one XD
Fun Fact: Newfoundland, Canada has more dialects of English than any other place
Which is weird, because the rest of canada doesn’t really have all that many.

Yes, that is Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton. No joke!
It’s a still from Snowpiercer, a post-apocalyptic film where a failed attempt to save the earth from global warming has resulted in a new Ice Age. The only survivors are aboard a train, Snowpiercer, that travels indefinitely. A distinct class system forms among the passengers, resulting in a revolt by the lower class at the back of the train upon the outnumbered elite at the front. The film also stars John Hurt, Ed Harris, Octavia Spencer and Jaimie Bell.
Despite the film being mostly English-speaking and having a recognizable and solid cast of American and British actors, as well as Korean actors, the film has yet to be released in the US, the UK and other English-speaking countries.
The Weinstein Company continues to insist on cutting 25 minutes from this astonishing film by Korea’s acclaimed director, Bong Joon-ho. Most who were involved in the making of this film, especially the director, feel that cutting 25 minutes from Snowpiercer (in addition to adding voiceovers) will negate necessary character development and backstory, rendering it no more than a cool action movie rather than a daring, unique drama fundamentally about the pitfalls of classism.
Why the cuts and voiceovers? Why not just stick with the director’s vision? Because reportedly Harvey Weinstein doesn’t feel Americans capable and/or willing to give a film like this a chance in its true form. Reportedly he feels most of us, particularly those in the Midwest, just won’t get it. Therefore, The Weinstein Company won’t make as much money on it as they would if it were more palatable to the ignorant American masses.
It has also been reported by some news outlets, that because The Weinstein Company holds distribution rights in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa as well as the US, they may also not get the film in its intended form by default.
Bong Joon-ho, resisting Harvey Weinstein’s demands, feels Americans will understand it. The film has already been released with great financial and critical success in Korea and France and has upcoming releases in Japan, Sweden and Germany. It has won several awards at various international film festivals particularly in direction, design and cinematography.
Until Harvey Weinstein and Bong Joon-ho can come to an agreement the film will remain out of the reach of English-speaking countries…all because a rich CEO doesn’t think he’ll maximize on profits if he lets Americans think for themselves. Meanwhile The Weinstein Company has reportedly actively blocked any attempts by anyone to show this film in the United States.
I refuse to be insulted as such just as I refuse to have anyone, let alone someone apparently consumed with greed, dictate to me what I can and cannot watch in my own language.
Stand up for your rights as a film-goer! Let’s fight for the director’s cut and release of Snowpiercer. Not only will this brilliant film finally be freed, but it may set a precedent for future foreign films as well.

Just like it’s said in this interview, this is fucking bullshit.
I’m part of the few who have seen this movie in its entire length, and I was lucky enough to see it in the original version, and it is amazing. I can’t imagine what could be cut from it. It’s a freaking masterpiece, the director’s vision is impressive and original, and once more the acting is amazing. Everyone should be able to see it and make their own mind on whether or not they enjoy the depth of it.
the 1995 Pride and Prejudice is so great it’s like *sticks exactly to the book, sticks exactly to the book, sticks exactly to the book COLIN FIRTH IN A WET SHIRT sticks exactly to the book, sticks exactly to the book*
Frigga understood loki better than anyone else, and I wonder if she had see what will happen with Loki and herself, and she wanted a part of her to be always at his side, so that no matter what he will remember that someone truly loved him once
