A long-denied travesty in Turkey’s history gets the silver-screen treatment in the engulfing historic drama “The Promise.” Writer/director Terry George gives a romantic backdrop to the Armenian genocide happening in the 1910s as the Ottoman Empire begins to crumble. With a set of beautiful leads and a fascinating landscape, “The Promise” combines beauty with tragedy while highlighting a dark period.
Rebecca Kivak — Four out of five stars. Jarring images that capture the turmoil in the Middle East circulate the news daily, from the photos of a drowned Syrian boy washing up on the beach to the chemical attack earlier this month that killed dozens. Current events provide a relevant lens through which to view “The Promise,” one of the few films to acknowledge another atrocity from that corner of the world – the Armenian genocide - over 100 years after the fact.
As the saying goes, go big or go home. In the case of “The Fate of the Furious,” it’s go big or go to an isolated Russian iceland and chase down a submarine. The eighth installment in “The Fast and the Furious” franchise begins in paradise — in this case, beautiful Cuba — with Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) in domestic bliss full of revved-up engines and street races.
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".
