'Blood and thunder' nghĩa là kịch tính (của một câu chuyện, sự kiện...).

Ví dụ
Taking place just three weeks after World Cup final, the Community Shield will not be a blood-and-thunder contest (trận đấu, trận giao tranh) between the strongest line-ups (đội hình) Manchester City and Chelsea can field.

We are by now used to blood and thunder rhetoric (hùng biện, hoa mỹ, khoa trương) between Washington and Tehran. But this time White House policy is clearly being directed by pro-Israel American neocons (người thuộc phái tân bảo thủ) who want the US military to crush Iran as it did Iraq.

Former Rangers starlets Steven and Robbie swap­ped the blood and thunder of Scottish football for a crack at the land of Thor. The pair opted for fresh starts in Iceland after teenage dreams of starring in the Light Blues’ first XI stalled.
