Pet peeve: fiction that uses foreign accents as a way to make villains stand out.
Dammit, Jim, they're foreign, not necessarily criminal thugs.
German accent: evil scientist
Russian accent: evil spy
Spanish accent: evil drug lord
French accent: evil seductress
I kind of wonder if these foreign stereotypes really are that prevalent in fiction or if I'm just listing my own prejudices.
@JordiGH English accent: just evil.
@eldang @JordiGH Nah, evil businessman, but the particular business depends on what English accent
@matias93 @eldang @JordiGH I think it's the posh ones that are more stereotypically evil
@JordiGH no, this is the cast list for a James Bond movie, those stereotypes really are out there
@JordiGH what about Italian?
@matias93 Evil mafioso.
@JordiGH true, even if not that clearly different from Spanish.
