Need some travel-sized films to watch on your devices during the holiday travel period? We’ve got a bushel for you. Here is a collection of mostly under-the-radar movies streaming for anyone who can’t commit to another 12-part Netflix series right now. “Romeo Is Bleeding”: For an extra serving of inspiration (and we all need more of that!) add this poignant Richmond-set documentary that illustrates how the arts provide a much-needed creative outlet for at-risk youths to express themselves.
“Murder on the Orient Express” supposedly goes off the rails and “Daddy’s Home 2” sounds abysmal. So what should you see a the cineplex? I can NOT recommend “God’s Own Country” highly enough. It’s a deceptively simple story told with acuity and sensitivity. I also loved “Blade of the Immortal,” a gory samurai drama with a kick-ass girl heroine. We need more of that, eh? Anyway, here are my reviews of both. See them before they vanish from the big screens.
Comedian Rose Marie rubbed shoulders with many of the greats in the show-biz world — Jimmy Durante and Dick Van Dyke to name a few — but many might not know the durable star got acquainted with many notorious real-life characters such as Al Capone and Bugsy Siegel. In “Wait For Your Laugh,” Jason Wise’s compulsively entertaining documentary on Rose Marie’s illustrious, influential career and life, the entertainer guides audiences through the early years of vaudeville and Vegas, and then beyond.
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".
