Go Super to Listen Go Super!

In his most recent movie, The Fighter, Mark Wahlberg plays a tough boxing champion. But in real life, he has a sensitive side. He recently said that he loves kids’ movies. He even thinks Toy Story 3 is the best movie ever made!

Mark says that Toy Story killed him. Usually, if something kills you, that’s not a good thing. But you can use the expression “it killed me!” to mean that something moved you, or made you feel a strong emotion.

You can use “it kills me” to talk about pretty much any strong emotion. If watched a really sad movie you can say, “It killed me.” If you heard a hilarious joke you can say, “It killed me.” Or if you want to talk about how much you love Ebaby! you can say “It kills me!”

What movies have you seen lately that have killed you?

it kills me to see people pretending to be native speakers and lying to people when they are not.

i know this seems mean, but its meaner that he lies to make friends who just want to learn english from a native.

lovely slang:) "He's so hot, it kills me", haha. 

Ex: "I'm meeting a lot of deadlines of homework, assignments and presentations. Oh my godness, it's really killed me" 

So could we use the present perfect tense as above example? Help me please, guys.
