2017 was a great year for film in terms of quality releases, but towards the end it all got a bit… overshadowed by the terrible actions of a few noteworthy individuals. I’m not going to write anything about the state of the film industry after shock waves such as these have been felt anytime soon however. I’ll always look back on 2017 fondly in terms of its filmic output and thus, here is my list of the top 15 movies that saw release last year. This sequel to Jumanji was a pleasant surprise.
Following the dramatic events of The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi sees Rey (Daisy Ridley) attempt to get Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) out of his shell and either teach her the ways of the force, or to come with her and aid in the ongoing fight against the First Order.
I’ve known of Gojira for a long while, but it’s only been in the last couple of years that I have grown to fully appreciate them. To date they have released six great records, but there always has to be the best and the worst. Thus, I have ranked them in order of worst to best for your reading pleasure. Gojira have always carried a bit of the Sepultura about them, but none more so than in their debut, Terra Incognita. It’s a good record, but the band have clearly found their sound since.
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".
