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?

I would suggest Eamonn Walker’s take on Chester “Howlin’ wolf” Arthur Burnett in “Cadillac records” for a possible next time.

Since I was alive while Nixon was President and heard his voice all the time. I would say Langella is closest but no one really nails it.

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.

The guy that played Brian May was horrifically accurate in all ways of it.

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: esvid.net/video/v%C3%ADdeo-38rHuxIhf6I.html

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.
