妙語佳句,活學活用

1. That'll be the day

這個片語的意思是“That will never happen, that's very unlikely那不可能”,例如:You think I'll win the lottery? That'll be the day! 你以為我會中獎?那不可能!

這個片語本來是 that will be the day worth waiting for,後來簡化為 thatll be the day

2. quit

這個詞可以用來表示“停止或中斷”,比如:The teacher asked them to quit talking. 老師要求他們不要說話。以後大家想要別人不要做某事可以有不止stop一個選擇了。

3. run one's mouth

這個片語的意思是“to talk excessively or foolishy”,這裡我們可以理解為“胡說八道,說個沒完”。

4. big talk

Big talk 自然就是“大話”了。

5. keep up

這裡的意思是“繼續(做某事)”,比如:We asked her to stop talking, but she kept up. 我們請她別再說話了,但她依舊說下去。
 

文化面面觀

The Coen Brothers

The Coen Brothers are a filmmaking duo known mostly for quirky dark comedies, including Raising Arizona (1987), Fargo (1996) and The Ladykillers (2004). Joel (b. 29 November 1954) and Ethan (b. 21 September 1957) grew up in Minnesota and went to college in Massachusetts. Joel got involved in the movie business in the early 1980s, including working with Sam Raimi on The Evil Dead (1981) and Crimewave (1985). The Coens' first film together, Blood Simple (1984), was a critical success and set them on a career path of independently made movies that get as much attention as big Hollywood productions. Although Joel is often credited as director and Ethan is credited as producer, they share filmmaking duties, including writing and editing. The Coen Brothers have had their ups and downs at the box office, but they have a loyal audience and a reputation as thoughtful movie makers. They won a screenwriting Oscar for Fargo (and Joel's wife, Frances McDormand, won an Oscar for Best Actress), and in recent years have worked with big-named stars such as George Clooney (2000's O Brother, Where Art Thou?), Billy Bob Thornton (2001's The Man Who Wasn't There), Catherine Zeta-Jones (2003's Intolerable Cruelty) and Tom Hanks (2004's The Ladykillers). Their other films include Miller's Crossing (1990), Barton Fink (1991) and The Big Lebowski (1998). Their 2007 adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel No Country for Old Men won them Oscars for writing, direction and best picture.
