basically, a monologue.

it's sorta like the character is talking to himself, or the character is talking to the audience but not looking for comment/answers to his statements
hamelet's soliloquy is probably the most famous one, or at least it's up there.

2. The act of speaking to oneself.

Late Latin sôliloquium : Latin sôlus, alone + Latin loquî, to speak.
Hamlet Act 2, Scene 2:
Now I am alone. O, what a rogue and peasant slave am I! Is it not monstrous that this player here, But in a fiction, in a dream of passion, Could force his soul so to his own conceit That from her working all his visage wann'd, Tears in his eyes, distraction in's aspect, A broken voice, and his whole function suiting With forms to his conceit? and all for nothing! For Hecuba! What's Hecuba to him, or he to Hecuba, That he should weep for her? What would he do, Had he the motive and the cue for passion That I have? He would drown the stage with tears And cleave the general ear with horrid speech, Make mad the guilty and appal the free, Confound the ignorant, and amaze indeed The very faculties of eyes and ears. Yet I, A dull and muddy-mettled rascal, peak, Like John-a-dreams, unpregnant of my cause, And can say nothing; no, not for a king, Upon whose property and most dear life A damn'd defeat was made. Am I a coward? Who calls me villain? breaks my pate across? Plucks off my beard, and blows it in my face? Tweaks me by the nose? gives me the lie i' the throat, As deep as to the lungs? who does me this? Ha! 'Swounds, I should take it: for it cannot be But I am pigeon-liver'd and lack gall To make oppression bitter, or ere this I should have fatted all the region kites With this slave's offal: bloody, bawdy villain! Remorseless, treacherous, lecherous, kindless villain! O, vengeance! Why, what an ass am I! This is most brave, That I, the son of a dear father murder'd, Prompted to my revenge by heaven and hell, Must, like a whore, unpack my heart with words, And fall a-cursing, like a very drab, A scullion! Fie upon't! foh! About, my brain! I have heard That guilty creatures sitting at a play Have by the very cunning of the scene Been struck so to the soul that presently They have proclaim'd their malefactions; For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak With most miraculous organ. I'll have these players Play something like the murder of my father Before mine uncle: I'll observe his looks; I'll tent him to the quick: if he but blench, I know my course. The spirit that I have seen May be the devil: and the devil hath power To assume a pleasing shape; yea, and perhaps Out of my weakness and my melancholy, As he is very potent with such spirits, Abuses me to damn me: I'll have grounds More relative than this: the play 's the thing Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king.

A term used to summarise a bad solo speech in a Kevin Costner movie.
That scene was a big load of soliloquies , it will never win him an acting Oscar. It lacked depth and delivery, if Connery had delivered that line it would have got an Oscar.

The name of a dramatic, emo, stoner bitch who has no sense of humanly respect or thanks for anyone around her. Usually, girls with this name have hippie parents and a lot of deep rooted mental issues that affect everyone around her and her social standing. Also, people with these attributes have no real sense of self worth and will therefore shallowly latch to anything that shows it affection. If encountered in the wild, KILL IMMEDIATELY; two bullets in the head, one in the heart, and thirty-nine in the weed bag will usually do the trick. If not killed the wild Soliloquy will latch to you and use you in anyway she sees fit. 2/10 would not bang.
Ew. That girl is such a Soliloquy I totally saw her smoking weed and giving blow while cutting herself behind the bleachers.
