The movie-blogging community was agog Thursday night when Robert Sanchez resurfaced, showing his face for the first time in months by openly attending the movie-junket circuit screening of “Tron: Legacy.”Sanchez, a film blogging founding father who fled for Mexico in the midst of a family sex scandal and personal financial crisis, was at the Thursday night screening, and for many who have known and worked with him, the reaction was nothing short of shock.
With self-awareness in such short supply in Hollywood, isn't it nice to know that some studios are willing to just finally 'fess up and own it when something goes haywire? Darren Aronofsky's mother! clearly isn't for everybody — maybe even for nobody, as its rare 'F' Cinemascore would indicate, though critics kinda dug it — and at first, Paramount Pictures (and Aronofsky himself) went immediately on the defensive.
If you've watched as much My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic as I have — it's a young-daughters thing, not a Brony thing, OK? — then it will come as no surprise that the music, themes and visuals around this franchise can be fairly sophisticated these days. And leave it to Sia to put a touch of sparkly melancholy into her contribution to the upcoming My Little Pony: The Movie soundtrack, a song called "Rainbow," which also got its own music video on Tuesday.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
