Rupert Murdoch is a titan in the news and media industry.
He seems larger-than-life and wields a lot of power.

后街的一首歌里也有一句歌词是“larger than life”,一直也没弄明白是怎么翻译的。请教各位了!谢谢

Denny Crane in Boston Legal also used this term to describe his uncle Bill.  And the translation (is it called dubbing?) in that TV series is 不服老,活力充沛类似的意思.

在有关Denny Crane将医院里的医疗垃圾(人体脂肪)晕倒挪威制造成燃料的那集.

金山里这样解释:
larger-than-life
有英雄(或传奇)色彩的
=====================

Very impressive or imposing:
"This is a person of surpassing integrity; a man of the utmost sincerity; somewhat larger than life" (Joyce Carol Oates).
==========

Idioms: big as life

Also, large as life. In person, as in And there was Mary, big as life, standing right in front of me. This phrase transfers the same size as in real life (life-size) to an actual appearance. Sometimes this term is embellished with and quite as natural, presumably alluding to a likeness of a person or thing that closely resembles the real thing. A similar addition is and twice as natural, which doesn't make sense.
  Live and Love.
