Bobby is the motel manager. He fixes ice machines, sits at a computer, kindly but firmly shakes down occupants for what they owe. Many of them are bordering on permanent residency, despite rules stating otherwise; one gets the sense that these people could live cheaper somewhere else, but would be shut down by a credit application. The people are poor, and a charity truck giving away bread and jam regularly parks out front, but is asked to move around the back.
Meanwhile, in an unspecified snowy seaside village probably in Scandinavia, Batman seeks out Aquaman (Jason Momoa), a surly bro from the underwater town of Atlantis. They exchange the following dialogue: “I hear you can talk to fish.” “You dress like a bat.” See, Batman has decided he needs help in thwarting the brewing evil, and wants to assemb- er, bring together Earth’s super people.
One of the greatest hill-of-beans movie debates involves "Die Hard," the 1988 action classic in which a barefoot Bruce Willis steps on broken glass on his way to chucking Alan Rickman off a building. First, let's make this clear: It's the greatest action movie ever made. That's not a debate at all. You might be able to make a convincing case for "Mad Max: Fury Road," "The Bourne Ultimatum" or "Hard Boiled" for second place, but first place? It's taken.
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".
