In the second episode of “Planet Earth: Blue Planet II,” debuting Saturday, camera crews descend 3,280 feet into the icy waters of the Antarctic in a pair of submersibles to find creatures that look like creations for a sci-fi film. “I always say all the aliens are right here,” says filmmaker and underwater explorer James Cameron when discussing the BBC America nature documentary (during an interview for his own AMC series “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction”).
Ridley Scott’s 1982 “Blade Runner” took a while for audiences, and even critics, to warm up to. Now the dystopian film based on Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” has become an influential, sci-fi classic. When it was released in October, the Denis Villeneuve-directed “Blade Runner 2049” received a similar, not overly enthusiastic reception from both audiences and critics. Will the sequel eventually be appreciated like the original?
David Bowie: The Last Five Years: (Available on HBO on demand and HBO Go) Francis Whately’s film reflects on the late pop icon’s final years. It includes lots of older footage – some of it unseen before – along with images from the making of Bowie’s final two albums, as well as creating a stage play. Even if the doc doesn’t reach any conclusions about chameleon-esque rocker, its subject is endlessly fascinating.
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".
