Despite her repeated protestations I use the opinions of Mrs. TwShioh as a gauge of the opinions of all Swedes (what’s wrong with making broad, sweeping generalizations with a sample size of 1?). One strange thing I’ve noticed (even among my in laws raising the n value to 4 or 5!) is a general dislike of Dolph Lundgren. It seems he’s viewed as a bit of a sell out, altering his accent (a la Madonna) to pick up a bit of an American twang in his Swedish.
When I tried to get more detailed information about the source of dislike for Dolph I could only get “He’s….lame”. I’m not sure that’s entirely fair given his amazing contributions to our civilization in the realm of film. I suspect this has something to do with his perceived violation of the jantalagen.
Don’t think you’re anyone special or that you’re better than us.
Well…he’s back. Performing a badly sung, karate demo/dance number. He looks like he’s lip synching but one would hope not since if it was they’d surely be able to engineer a better sound than this.
