Oh please.  😂

You can't post all that criticism on Squid Game only to direct the reader to bloody Clickbait. A show that notoriously has one of the most unearned plot twists in existence.

 

Having scenes of that bloke piping his mistress only to find out he never actual met her and she was texting an old lady instead? Fuck off show and your "reveal". 😂

By the way, any show that starts with characters telling each other their relation to each other (“Why thanks big brother”/“I know it’s your birthday, you’re my mum”) then 9 times out of 10 it's going to be absolute dross.

I saw the trailer and was left confused as to why everybody seems excited over baddies that look like they're trying to sell you PlayStations at a convention and voice overs that look terrible but I thought I would give it a try anyway.

It didnt start too well as about two minutes in you quickly establish that the main character is a penis you cannot relate too. To evoke any sort of character emotion this episode they had to have a guy beat up a woman yet the main character still somehow managed to come across as more irritating when he had a confrontion with him. Then it turns out once they revealed why they're all there everybody is as stupid as the main character. That said the actual game was fun, so I might just fast forward all the back story with these idiots and just watch them get obliterated.

The VIP pricks made me skip a few seconds when they got screen time.

I still have one episode left to watch. I don't think this is a spoiler for those who haven't watched it yet but what I'm about to say might cross the line so.

I found the VIP scenes in the episode I just watched, when they first arrived, really badly jarring. The dialogue was like a dodgy caricature of a decadent Western/American bad guy billionaire stereotype.

Like you say, it really threatened my immersion in the human drama. I can't describe it any better than that. The way they spoke was so far away from how any real person would speak that I just couldn't take it seriously and wanted those scenes over with.

I'm guessing it was written by the Korean writers. It makes me wonder whether films written in Hollywood or Europe are as painfully bad at writing Asian or Russian or foreign dialogue in general in English films. I'd expect more of them probably have the budget to get people who understand the language and the culture well enough to create more natural and believable conversations. In fact, if they were doing it themselves, I'd expect the American/British writers to do an even worse job of it if anything. But yeah, this was not a good example of that and it made me wonder just how bad it is when the boot is one the other foot. xD

Russian dialogues and accents in Hollywood movies are usually comically bad; sometimes even completely incomprehensible.

He gets more likable the more you get into the show.

Although I’m not done so maybe that changes

Just stumbled across this, and apparently it's accurate. Everyone who watches this dubbed should be ashamed of themselves. Please find the wall that is closest to you and bash your head against it. 

Thought this was a parody at first. 😅

Apparently kids have been playing the red light green light game and beating up the kids who get eliminated 😂 That seems like a game primary score kids would play. Not sure they should be watching it in the first place. I would be  a bit worried if they started doing it in America . Might actually shoot each other

Thought it was gripping in the middle but at one point it felt like every other K-Show I have watched over the years for the gore and violence that they exhibit in their cinema. It gave me very Battle Royale vibes at one point too, if you haven't watched that I'd also recommend giving it a go.

As for the dubbing, it didn't really bother me but maybe that's just because I kind of expect this from dubs when it comes to Asian cinema. Some phrases and language semantics just don't port over to other languages so getting close to it is the best they can do really.
