    Dialect coach Erik Singer once again takes a look at idiolects, better known as the specific way one individual speaks. Did Rami Malek do a good job speaking through prosthetics to become Freddie Mercury? How accurate was Jennifer Lawrence's Long Island accent in Joy? Did Christian Bale nail former Vice President Dick Cheney?

Mallek didn't sound at ALL English, or even like Freddie Mercury. He sounded like a pronounced American doing a posh accent. This guy is also way wrong on the Queen's accent and how he compares Foy with Liz. He's using a lot of words for basic vowels.

When he was talking about the s sound that Freddie and Rami made at the end I couldn't tell if he said "well" or Wow" but he didn't say if he thought Rami made the s sound correctly or not, Personally I don't think he did. That is not a critusizm on Rami by any means, I mean he didn't grow up speaking around larger teeth like Freddie and he did a great job in the movie, But like I said Erik didn't say what his opinion was.

I loved Claire Foy's accent as Queen Elizabeth- I thought she captured the essence without trying to sound exactly like a caricature of the Queen. The actress that did Coretta Scott King was satisfactory. I still on the fence on that one. Jennifer nailed the Long island accent.

I think Gary Oldman did a great job as Churchill. He said in an interview that he deliberately didn’t try to get Churchill’s voice perfect because Churchill spoke in such an odd way that it wouldn’t be believable. He actually needed to see a dialect coach around that time as he was losing his English accent! It was due to him doing so many different accents in films and living in the USA for so long. :)

Regarding Ice Cube..... reminds me of in 3 Kings, one of his buddies gets shot and he comes over and asks if he can breathe. But he pronounces it "Breef" like in Briefcase. Seen here: https://youtu.be/38rHuxIhf6I?t=35

Erik singer should do some famous impression singers. Like Rami Maleks movie role as Freddie. Most of the music was sung by Marc Martel. The band members themselves were blown away by his sound being so much like Freddie's. They felt it impossible.

Can you please have Erik Singer review atleast one Snatch Game winner, if not a whole episode reviewing the performance of the best Snatch Game winners. Atleast Chad Michael's Cher impression. For those who don't know Snatch Game is an annual challenge on Rupaul's Drag Race since season 2 where the queens have to impersonate celebrities on a game show setting.

This content is really good but the fact that it keeps cutting to scenes of the movie "responding" to what he's saying is really jarring and doesn't fit. It would be better if he just kept talking instead of adding little commentary.
