Fans were rightfully nervous when Rian Johnson was given The Last Jedi, if only because he doesn’t have as much history as you might expect. Looper might be the kind of film that makes you think positively about anyone’s ability to continue a sci-fi saga, but he only has The Brothers Bloom and Brick behind that, which doesn’t make for a collection that stacks up against a plethora of potential directors.
Comparisons are tricky creatures, especially when you’re in an odd niche, but if a show hits that is moody, dark, and has a really bonkers, sci-fi story, it’s going to be compared to Stranger Things by just about everyone. Such is the case with Netflix‘ German series, Dark, and the problem is figuring out what, “Germany’s Stranger Things,” and similar, could possibly mean. Does it involve tweens and monsters, or is it just hard to make out what’s going on without adjusting the brightness?
I have to wonder about the experience of the uninitiated going into The Disaster Artist, mainly because they don’t have the background hilarity of The Room arming them against analyzing what director/star James Franco is about to lay out before them. The Disaster Artist, based on Greg Sestero’s memoir “The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made,” tells the story of Greg’s adventure with Tommy Wiseau, before and during the production of The Room.
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".
