If you read last week’s 2017 review, you might remember that I wasn’t super impressed with a lot of the offerings of 2017. The biggest films of the year were female-led in a year where female empowerment became a common theme. One of those films — “Wonder Woman” made my list of the best. Another — “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” — wasn’t even close to being a favorite. Here’s a look at what 2018 holds for movie-goers. (Dates are subject to change.
I’m not sure I can say that last year was an awesome one for movies. The goal for the movies year in review is to come up with a list of my top 10 films, but the 2017 offerings have me suggesting for you my top five instead.“Wonder Woman”I’d waited my entire life to see Wonder Woman on the big screen. Once they announced this film, I eagerly watched all the developments, from Gal Gadot being cast as Diana to Patty Jenkins taking the helm as director.
Hugh Jackman is one of those charismatic actors that can do just about anything. For 17 years, we saw him play the bad-tempered Logan, a.k.a. Wolverine, a run that ended with this year’s “Logan.” He’s starred in rom coms, like 2001’s “Someone Like You,” opposite Ashley Judd. From Broadway-level musicals like 2012’s “Les Misérables” to hardcore dramas like 2013’s “Prisoners,” he’s done just about everything.With a wheelhouse that diverse, just about anything fits.
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".
