Last year Liam Neeson announced his retirement from action films. “Guys I’m sixty-f—-five. Audiences are eventually going to go: ‘Come on!’” Then, just months later, he had a change of heart. “It’s not true, look at me! You’re talking in the past tense. I’m going to be doing action movies until they bury me in the ground. I’m unretired.”At an age when most action stars are staying home soaking in vats of Voltaren, Neeson continues his tough guy ways in this weekend’s action-thriller The Commuter.
Metro movie critic Richard Crouse reviews the top movies that opened this weekend:When the present Paddington bear planned to buy for his aunt’s birthday is stolen, he is wrongly convicted and thrown in jail. Gentle and good-natured, the little bear is at the very heart of the movie. Paddington 2 is one of those rare kids' films that doesn’t feel like an excuse just to sell merchandise. The Commuter settles into very predictable beats as Liam Neeson gets to the bottom of this train-based mystery.
PADDINGTON 2: 4 ½ STARS The last time we saw Paddington, the cuddly, orphaned teddy bear, voiced by Ben Whishaw, had left Peru armed only with a “worrying marmalade problem” and his distinctive red hat. Arriving at Paddington Station in London, he was adopted by the Brown family after an uncomfortably close scrap with a crazed taxidermist.
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".
