One of the primary reasons video game adaptations are so difficult to get right is because of the innate difference between what we get from games and what we get from movies. When you strip agency away from most games, what you’re left with is narrative soup. There are a handful of games where I feel like the narrative was strong enough that if I’d just watched it passively, I still would have been interested or compelled by what took place… but not many.
One of the easiest ways to define your voice as a filmmaker is to honestly lean into your passions, and with Wes Anderson, he does that to the degree that he’s elevated it to pure fetish by this point. I’m okay with that, though, especially when the results are as flat-out delightful as ISLE OF DOGS, a dark and witty film that is beautifully animated and practically drunk on Japanese cinema of the 1950s.
There is a science fiction novel I first read over 30 years ago, and since the weekend when I consumed it again in two sittings, I have had an irrational itch to turn it into a film. I say “irrational” because I know objectively that there’s not a movie in it, and even knowing that, I still wish I had the money to buy the rights and start pre-production tomorrow.
The grossest part of all of this is that Cohen may be "right" in court, but it just points out how the wealthy use the courts to hide secrets. The system is broken, and NDA rules shouldn't protect you from your own horrible behavior. https://twitter.com/THR/status/975440472272404480
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".
