what do you think about the way Hollywood depicts your country/culture?
Argentina is usually wrongly depicted, pretty much either one of both extremes, violent mexicans or nazis.
the only time I thought they got it right was in the tv show "Dexter", and they barely talk about the country anyways.
did you like dexter?
It's my favorite TV show.
Do you like living in the "Latin Paradise" of Buenos Aires?
>"DUDE HITLER AND THE NAZIS RAN AWAY TO SOUTH AMERICA"
And that's exactly what we're saying, everytime Argentina is mentioned in a american film/show it's always either spic/nazi related.
the bartender sounds mexican, he pulls a shotgun 5 seconds into his scene.
there are nazis laughing in the tabern.
and yes, that meme comes up every time there's a nazi in a movie/tv show, like dwight's grandparents in the office, or the soup nazi in seinfeld.
it's not a good depiction of my country, since there were only 3 nazis found hiding in here, it makes us look as if we were all nazis or something.
Argentina is an irrelevant country and that's why no one cares to portray if "correctly". Just like no one cares about portraying the nuances between East Africans from West Africans no one cares about you. Everyone below the US is just Mexican.
Don't even fucking talk about Dexter, that ending was terrible. Like, what is she going to do with Harrison in Argentina? What is she going to tell him?
>"Yeah, I'm your new mommy now, and your daddy is gone. Forever. I didn't kill him." He's old enough at the end to remember this shit and think to ask, and maybe even research it in the future? How is she going to explain her little killing spree?
And what the fuck is going on with Dexter? Murderous axe man? Really? Dude that's cliche as fuck, at least go be like an archaeologist or something. Fuck, should have just stuck with the pseudo-incest plotline they had going with him and Deb!
A snowy desolate wasteland. Couldn't even get a proper Finnish actress, instead we got a weaselly looking mick. She doesn't even look Finnish.
eh, hollywood doesn't manage to portray anything further than 50km from USA's borders accurately.
It just goes to show how unknowledgable americans are, when they can do this and pull it off.
>irrelevant on your own continent, inferior to Brazil, Peru, and Chile
>Peru, and Chile
You're trying too hard m8
Everyone at least knows about the Inca.
Literally no one knows or cares about what Argentina has ever done. In college I remember hearing a conversation of some dude asking an Argentinian what language they spoke there lol.
yes, it's pretty much a perfect place to live in, particularly if you were born here.
it's cheap, it's beautiful, you've got free unis, free healthcare, and since it's a massive city there's literally nothing you can't find here.
what about this?
do you understand him?
I couldn't, not even a single fucking word, but I thought it might just be gibberish for the sake of commedy.
I know you're trolling, but for the next time so you'll know this doesn't work, we literally created peru m8, and the incans were argentinean aswell.
this was actually their flag.
Perú is literally one of the less relevant countries in Latin America. They haven't done anything since they declared independence. Argies at least have football and that war in the 80's. Nobody even remembers the dictatorships of Peru (much like the dictatorship of Paraguay), but everyone remembers the ones from Chile and Argentina.
Argentina is the third more relevant country in the region. Maybe Cuba was more relevant in the 60's, but not now. Brazil/Mexico>Argentina>Everyone else.
I don't see why it's relevant.
Peru has its own borders now and everything within it is its history. You don't see Spaniards trying to claim all your historical contributions like... ummm.... losing the Falklands? I seriously don't know anything you've done besides that.
GOAT tier city but still pretty irrelevant compared to Buenos Aires.
American movies about Japan always makes us seem that everybody(aka middle-aged men and young pretty girls) is a high-tech-ninja-samurai-businessman. I think we should be depicted more realistically.
why do Argies like to pretend they are relevant lmao
it's not like hollywood portrays Mexicans, Brazilians, Chileans etc correctly 100% of the time. it's always the Argies bitching, moaning. is it a defensive mechanism?
like others above posted, everything south of USA is Mexico. that depicts Mexico in a good, or a bad way. point is, we portray Mexico wrongly.
Do I really need to say anything?
The only western movies featuring my country weren't even filmed here and depict us as complete fucking hell on earth.
I can't remember anything regarding Portugal except in two/three films.
One is the "the interpreter" and the guy there of course looks like a Mexican.
In primal fear there is a song playing that was very famous here (Canção do Mar).
And a girl from Lisbon showed in the Movie Miami Vice. Pic related.
So basically to Americans we're either brown or Latin American and surely not in Europe.
Can't remember much more.
I'm actually watching this now.
I wish I knew how Americans were depicted in foreign films. I've seen several movies from other countries but they hardly ever mention the US; in high school I saw a Bollywood movie with an American character but all he did was stand around in a suit wide eyed and occasionally grinning. There must be more examples.
It's just not worth learning every little nuance of every single culture. Like what I'm supposed to care that Argies cook their tacos a different way than Mexicans or whatever? Every Hispanic country is just Spain+Injuns and they're like 75% the same culturally as Mexicans, you don't need to learn anything more past that.
"Alright, cheer tell ya what best blood as you've ever made this one."
"Well already was planning to tell ya I am jabbered jest, jabbered full of beans, no doubt."
"Can I get you to say, with me, "how bloody are 'ya?!""
I like how European movies depict Americans though.
Is like a fightback at how Hollywood as been misrepresent almost all types of Europeans for years.
That's my point, Santiago is a comfy city but it's too small/irrelevant to be compared with Buenos Aires.
>Every Hispanic country is just Spain+Injuns and they're like 75% the same culturally as Mexicans
that's the kind of ignorance that leads you to portraying a country the wrong way.
Argentina is half italian.
Colombia has a shitload of black people.
Peru has a lot of japanese people.
Bolivia are mainly indians.
we're not all the same.
we're pretty different, specially us (argentina, uruguay and chile) I would say because we are far from that central latino culture they have in the north, and even they are quite different if you compare them with each other.
Literally the weirdest nose I've ever seen.
Also she cheats on Rico before breaking up with him in a deleted scene.
Dina Meyer aged way better, too.
I'm not saying you're exactly the same, I'm saying you're all in the same ballpark.
Like I said, no one cares if you mix up say, Kenyan culture with Nigerian culture. There's a general "African" culture we know, and it is right 75% of the time. It's just not worth it to know every little detail of every country and portray it exactly how it is. No one has enough time to learn everything.
if you are going to talk about a country/culture in a movie, you have to do your research and do it properly.
it's like that guy that confused samuel l jackson with laurence fishburne, you have to do your research, it's your job to do it right.
Watch Invasion. Johny made it to a 4 star General, lost an eye, grew a beard, got some badass scars.
Carmen is still hot, though she stayed a captain.
They still aren't married, but they are definitely fucking.
Carmen is a whore and a bitch as indicated in that scene on the football field.
Dizzy is an alpha woman with the face of an angel.
Marry Carmen and you can expect to get cheated on 10 times and your kid will be taken care of by a nanny. Marry Dizz and she'll bear children with strong genes.
Why are you even replying to obvious bait posts?
>do you understand him?
I understand him, but the actor (Josh Lawson) is intentionally slurring his words together for the comedic purpose. That's not even how he talks naturally.
That's pretty weird. Can you tell the difference between these two? One's a South African (white shirt) and the other is Australian (blue shirt).
Well, in Focus they got Buenos Aires right, specially the part where Will Smith shouts
>WHERE ARE THE BLACK PEOPLE?
Movies makers have enough to worry about with creating realistic characters and plot. If they have to burden themselves with 100% accuracy about every detail no movie would ever get finished.
My dad does this. I visited Ghana two years ago, but he will never refer to it by name he just calls it Africa if talking to someone; but if we mention the other trip it's just Germany, and never Europe.
im kind of shite with accents. any big city accents always confuse me (cork, dublin north or south or whatever). in fact anything other than midlands makes me uncomfortable
t. laois bai
Do you consider him French?
He seems to be the de-facto French guy for our films.
well, the problem is that BOTH have strong meat export business
but you can always remember for Brazil exporting fruits (banana, orange, other tropical ones) to make it different. Brazil is like USA but crossing North to South, so it has its Hawaii and its Oregon
Yes even I noticed it; but that's what they do with Asian things here in the states, the psuedo-chink font was invented for Chinese take out restaurants.
Are you truly Japanese, or a weeb?
Probably not, car factories are hard to close, they don't take into account short-term problems. In 2001 for example, the automotive industry kept making investments because they are long-term minded.
I've heard they normally record the scenes supposed to depict colombia in the philippines, guatemala or who knows where.
"Je suis un espion."
Can you translate?
The only thing I notice is that American shows seem to always infer that Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador are total shitholes. There will be some sort of plot element or dialogue about "Bringing running water to many Peruvians"
pretty rude desu, they can't be that bad
>scene set in Mexico
>music from spain
>sand fucking everywhere
>no road has pavement
>everyone moves at slow speed
>everyone is brown and looks indian
>download and watch Spectre last night
>James Bond collapses two buildings probably killing dozens of civilians in the process
>adjusts his suit like a badass
>decides to hop on a helicopter flying over crowds of tens of thousands and fight with the pilot
Does James Bond hate Mexicans or just not see them as human?
This meme was started by one of your countrymen actually.
To be fair everything in Bolivia that isn't Santa Cruz is legitimately a shithole, it's one of the most run down places I've been in my life, I was offered child prostitutes like 3 times, Santa Cruz is beautiful though.
>Like what I'm supposed to care that Argies cook their tacos a different way than Mexicans or whatever?
They don't even eat tacos. Tacos are strictly a Mexican thing that's sorta leaked into Central America.
Yes, I know this is bait.
I don't, because they don't depict us at all. Probably for the best, I already have to deal with foreigners going "DUDE DRACULA LMAO" at me. One bong immigrant here even threw a shitfit and said that the real life Vlad was a bloodthirsty monster because he impaled muslims. I'm not even making that up.
