“Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” stars Chris Pratt as a guy who travels the galaxy fighting for good with a rag-tag team of aliens. MICHELLE: I really didn’t want to watch this movie. I believe sequels usually suck and while Chris Pratt is adorable, that’s just not enough for me to sit through one more computer-generated imagery mess. ALLEN: I really wanted to see this movie in the theater, but that didn’t work out, so I streamed it as soon as that became available. I liked it a lot.
“The Circle” stars Tom Hanks and Emma Watson in a story about the death of privacy and the world of social networking. MICHELLE: I read Dave Eggers book. I loved it. When the movie came out, it got low ratings. So I didn’t even want to see it — because I was worried it would ruin my experience of the book, which is not only a fun read, but is about an important topic. I didn’t hate this movie, but I was glad I didn’t pay full price for a ticket. ALLEN: This was one of those “why bother” movies.
“American Anarchist” tells the story of William Powell, who at 19, wrote “The Anarchist Cookbook,” an act that has haunted him for 45 years. ALLEN: For those not familiar with “The Anarchist Cookbook” it is one of the most infamous books ever published. It was written by William Powell when he was an angry 19-year-old caught up in the social upheaval of the late ’60s. The book contains detailed instructions on things such as making bombs and advocates for violent rebellion.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
