I loved Viggos accent too [In reply to] Can't Post

Hes a Ranger, he probably never spoke to another human being for months in the Wild. he probably felt a bit rusty and awkward in Bree suddenly having to talk a lot. Viggo had an odd slightly old European sounding accent in Bree, but not American.
But as I am English and I am very familiar with various English accents, I never for one moment thought Viggo or any of the actors had an American accent. I would have noticed it like a sore thumb. I thought Elijah was perfect too, and I loved Sams West Country burr. Liv was pretty good also.

Not what I meant! [In reply to] Can't Post

Clicking on fellow torn-members profiles doesn't make you a stalker! Tongue

True [In reply to] Can't Post

Different accents [In reply to] Can't Post

I didnt mind the different accents. I could pick out the different dialects at times (like Billy Boyd's scottish accent), and thought nothing of it. I'd imagine, that in Middle Earth there would be different dialects depending on geography, just like there are in the real world.

Yea, I did hear some slip ups once in awhile as others have noted, but generally was too engaged to let it bother me.

In the Hobbit trailer you can already hear some of the different dialects (like James Nesbit's Irish one), so I'd imagine we'll get some of that in the Hobbit as well.
