Glad we didn't pay to see it at the theatres then!
Pattinson was trying to do an old Maine accent which still somewhat exists, but, imho, did it inconsistently because he is a pretty face, not a real actor like Dafoe.Had "The Lighthouse" on last nite while reading so I was sorta watching it.
I'm pretty sure that the look Willem Dafoe had in that was one he'd been working on all his life. Pattinson is a good actor but WTF was that accent he was trying to do?
Overall, it's worth it to see Dafoe shred every scene he's in, but overall & the ending was meh.
I liked Eggers "The Witch" better.
I don't have Netflix, and I am definitely still hung up on his being a sparkly vampire.Brahmin accent to me = Charles Emerson Winchester on M*A*S*H or William Powell in "The Thin Man" movies.
When I first heard Pattinson I thought he was doing a Southern accent which is an easier accent for a lot of Britsh actors to pull off. But sadly he wasn't Southern.
The dude can act, he's no Dafoe of course, but he's not so bad. People can't get past him being that sparkly vampire in the Twilight series. Did you see him in "The King"? He was NUTS in that.
He is going to be the new Batman so we'll either wish he'd stayed the sparkly vampire or he'll step up his game.
