Even those who think superhero movies absorb too much box-office attention might agree that their heroic themes make some of cinema's best music. Inspired by the opening of Man of Steel, here are some great examples. —-The following list is a purely idiosyncratic creation of yours truly. Healthy, respectful dissent is welcome and encouraged. 6. Alan Silvestri, Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) For an old-school, patriotic hero like Cap, Silvestri worked up an old-school, patriotic anthem.
A video-game heroine gets a blockbuster reboot, while a coming-out-of-age teen comedy and historical drama add to a busy week at multiplexes.shows that a contemporary gay teen romance can be more about comedy than angst. A well-meaning effort at both-sides-ing a pivotal Palestinian/Israeli conflict gets bogged down in rote procedural in.
FRIDAY 3/16 Coin, The Aces (No disrespect to Coin, but we've covered them before.) I'll admit to some concern that hometown girls The Aces signing to a bigger label (Red Bull Records) would see the already slick pop-rock group's considerable charms spit-polished to death. That would've been such a pisser, because they already had their shit together. Their songs are youthful, but written by older souls.
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".
