Following on from that die-cut picture disc of newbie droid BB-8, Disney is pressing John Williams’ magnificent soundtrack for Episode VII: The Force Awakens to vinyl. Not any old vinyl, mind; these are holographic records that offer a 3D experience of the Millennium Falcon on disc 1 and a TIE fighter on disc 2.
From Lady Bird to Logan Lucky, these are our highlights from what’s been a mast year for new movies. How many have you seen? With 2017 drawing to a close, it’s time once again to reflect on the films that have left the biggest impression on us over the past 12 months. As ever, this entirely unscientific ranking comprises only new features which received theatrical or digital distribution in the UK or US during the current calendar year.
Another year, another fine raft of movie posters. But much like Highlander, there can be only one that rules supreme. From The Beguiled to Good Time, here are 20 we’d be proud to hang on our bedroom walls. Think we’ve missed one? Let us known by tweeting your favourite @LWLiesIt’s never a good thing when the poster is better than the film.
@bobbyfriction@Nike piece makes sweeping, unsupported generalisations about brown people + implies hierarchies of oppression w/ 0 nuance. Shocking this hasn't been fact checked / edited in responsible way. V reductive piece, designed to divide POC community, disappointing coming from @galdemzine
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".
