Yes Jim, it seemed to go from Cockney, to Aussie to South African, i looked him up, and he`s Australian!

Ben Mendelsohn was just using his natural speaking voice as Talos.

Mendelsohn only using his natural voice while in full Skrull makeup was a smart move to preserve his overall villainous brand.

"Ben Mendelsohn was just using his natural speaking

I know that, it doesn`t change my perception that it
wavered between the accents i mentioned.

Your perception is probably completely accurate. Mendelsohn's IMDB says he spent a lot of time in the US and Europe growing up, then returned to Australia for high school. I wouldn't be surprised if his normal voice sounds like "not from around here" no matter where he is.

I know a woman (Minnesotan) who spent a whole year in Australia and came back with numerous Australianisms in her speech.

My daughter went to college in Ireland for a year and came back sounding like she belonged on Father Ted.

I'd have used a more current reference, but they're eluding me at the moment.

I don't have Hulu, so I'd never heard of this before. But I just watched a trailer for it and it looks pretty good!

Just got back from seeing it for the first time, and loved it.  Captain Marvel is certainly a hero for boys and girls everywhere. I'll definitely be going back to catch it again!

CAPTAIN MARVEL has failed its way across the billion dollar mark.

It's been a month of Disney-paid seat fillers.  C'mon, Michael!  You know better!

What a fucking disappointment. Disney executives have to be sitting there with their faces in their hands wondering what went wrong. Maybe they’ll learn from this one and do better with the next.

No doubt the Disney suits are looking over the publication history of the 1968 Mar-Vell version and thinking if they'd only stayed true to a character who was cancelled a half-dozen times and revamped a half-dozen times more before being killed off 40 years ago, they coulda made TWO billion dollars from the MRA crowd.

I know there was a lot of negative before the movie, but I'm not seeing much now. Am I reading the wrong things or have they finally shut up?

Saw it a second time yesterday - enjoyed it more

Nope, they're still around in social media and comments sections on CAPTAIN MARVEL's box office, going on about Larson's "wooden" acting, how the movie was horrible, and how Disney gamed the box office.

So will the internet conspiracy trolls please explain why Disney will only "cook the books" on CAPTAIN MARVEL, but will do nothing to "save" the notorious box-office receipts of, oh, A WRINKLE IN TIME, DUMBO (2019), THE NUTCRACKER & THE FOUR REALMS, JOHN CARTER, SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY, THE LONE RANGER, PRINCE OF PERSIA, TREASURE PLANET, ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, etc., etc., etc.???

Finally saw it. Thought it was fairly well done, I wish they had used a little more
light in some of the scenes but it was wel-acted and I enjoyed seeing Hala

Good grief... I wish the sad little men over at Midnight's Edge would just come right out and admit that they are OBSESSED with Brie Larson, they wanna kiss her, and they want her as their girlfriend, 'cause man, they seem to have about 57 videos ALL ABOUT Larson and the CAPTAIN MARVEL movie.

An unhealthy obsession bordering on psychosis.

(And the same goes for their rants about Kathleen Kennedy... I used to like their videos, but they turned into a He-Man Woman-Haters club rather quickly, it seems.)

(Hey, so do I... and I don't normally care for blonde Hollywood actresses!)

But really, their ridiculous videos, which seem to go on & on & on & on about what a supposedly horrible "SJW" she is, truly beg the question:

Do they (and other like-minded internet trolls) love to hate on her?  Or do they (more than likely) hate themselves for loving her?

Shaun, they also seem to have a vendetta against Sony. Hey, I don't like every decision that any studio makes,  but geez.  Come to think of it,  most of that Sony hatred started with the female Ghostbusters news. Hmm.  I see a trend.
