CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The "Disaster Artist" is a hip movie nerd's dream. It's the ultimate example of a cinephile's version of inside baseball. It's a movie about the making of a movie so inept it's been called "the 'Citizen Kane' of bad movies." The 2003 movie in question is called "The Room." It was written, produced, directed and stars an international man of mystery named Tommy Wiseau. He is a man destined for the Bad Movie Hall of Fame.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Nuns often can't get a fair shake in the movies. They are portrayed as either one-dimensional saints or run-of the-mill monsters. Or they get trotted out for comic relief. Writer-director Margaret Betts makes an honest attempt with her movie "Novitiate" to portray real women and young girls as they struggle with their faith, femininity and the changing institution of the Roman Catholic Church.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Violent death, deadly disease, gruesome disfigurement and painful divorce: This is award-winning Irish playwright Martin McDonagh's idea of a rip-snorting comedy. And he's very good at it. He puts the dark in dark comedy like no other contemporary writer today.
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".
