SHAKESPEARE’S FAMOUS QUOTATION:
“Life’s but a walking shadow...a tale
TRUMP APPLICATION #1 – THAT WAS THEN...
“AN IDIOT, FULL OF SOUND AND FURY, SIGNIFYING NOTHING”
TRUMP APPLICATION #2 – THIS IS NOW...
“Whatever reactions the protesters have, they need to face the facts that Clinton’s large margin in popular votes didn’t translate into an electoral victory. Their protests are mostly ‘full of sound and fury, signifying nothing’ more than profound disappointment.”
MOVIE QUOTE #1:
“I’m what, a slacker?...I’m in that white space where consumer terror meets irony and pessimism, where Scooby Doo and Dr. Faustus hold equal sway over the mind, where the Butthole Surfers provide the background volume, where we choose what is not obvious over what is easy. It goes on...like TV channel-cruising, no plot, no tragic flaws, no resolution, just mastering the moment, pushing forward, full of sound and fury, full of life signifying everything on any given day.”
MOVIE QUOTE #2:
“Sitting there at that moment I thought of something else Shakespeare said. He said, ‘Hey, life is pretty stupid, with lots of hubbub to keep you busy but really not amounting to much.’ Of course I'm paraphrasing.”
MOVIE BASHING QUOTE #1:
“Once you get past all the sound and fury, what you’re left with is basically emptiness.”
MOVIE BASHING QUOTE #2:
“‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is a rancid brew of silence, sound and fury, signifying the absolute worst the comic book movie genre has to offer.”
