This week, a recently freed from Harvey Weinstein “Wind River” leads the charge of Blu-Ray and DVD releases, hoping to score for Jeremy Renner. Plus, here’s also a ton of documentaries hitting shelves, as well as a must own Criterion release. With so much to talk about, let us get started ASAP! Jeremy Renner probably saw his Best Actor chances evaporate due to everything surrounding The Weinstein Company, but that takes nothing away from this terrific film.
There’s a lot going on in “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” that will puzzle you. Some of the choices by filmmaker Dan Gilroy will make you scratch your head. Ditto for star Denzel Washington. There’s also a really strong movie buried underneath. While Gilroy doesn’t always serve Washington well, the iconic actor still manages to become the best thing about the film. Tasked with doing something different, he shines at times and in other instances seems miscast.
This week, Aubrey Plaza gives the performance of her career so far in the highlighted title hitting Blu-Ray/DVD. Furthermore, it easily leads the charge today, with all of the other offerings on the slate coming up short. Plaza saves the day, without question. Time to dive in and see for yourself! Aubrey Plaza has never been better than she is in this pitch black comedy. Her work here is absolutely fantastic. She takes a premise that’s a tough sell and makes it a must watch.
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".
