Only the Brave is the latest from Joseph Kosinski, the architect-turned-director behind such emotionally closed yet visually stunning films as Tron: Legacy and Oblivion. It’s about firefighters in the American south-west, and this may lead you to think this will be a movie with flat characters but loads of thrilling special effects. It’s actually a bit of the reverse.
Bruce Springsteen, the Boss, the Boardwalk Balladeer, the one-time New Dylan, Steinbeck in Leather, the leader of the E Street Band and the man whose lyrics have been misunderstood by Republican politicians for over thirty years now has another title: Broadway star. Tuesday night’s performance of Springsteen on Broadway wasn’t officially opening night (that’s 12 October) but the reviews on the street from the first preview were unanimously positive.
As I waited for the lights to dim at the screening of Blade Runner 2049, I literally had my arms crossed. "Why are they doing this?" I called to whomever was listening. "Blade Runner is perfect, leave it the hell alone! Nobody asked for a sequel." Five minutes in, and I realized that this, if nothing else, did feel a lot like Blade Runner. By the end of the picture I knew I'd seen one of the best movies of the year.
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".
