In a year that has shown us many super-powered people causing varying levels of destruction, Thelma scales things back considerable. This is a coming-of-age story relying on how a young girl’s unusual powers serve as a metaphor for growing up into the person they were born to be. The results are affecting enough thanks to some strong performances and a haunting visual style. It may be familiar concerning concepts, but the presentation is not easy to ignore.
It’s not often I am surprised by the quality of a film these days, so it means something when I am caught off guard by how much I enjoy certain features. Darkest Hour is a great example, as the film is a rousing success for a variety of reasons. Not only does it get over the hill of difficulty I have in finding interest in measured biopics about historical white men portrayed by actors doing a decent impression, it also made me excited.
Following up an action-packed, yet emotional Ezekiel-focused episode of The Walking Dead last week, we now return to Negan, who hasn’t been seen since the premiere. “The Big Scary U” is not as exciting or as effective as the previous week’s stellar entry, but it does a lot to develop Negan and the Saviors, an aspect of the series sorely in need of more direction.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
