This Cheech and Chong-like story doesn’t really add up but lightly amuses. Rating: 2 stars out of 4. Summer’s here and the time is right for a stoner movie America can believe in. Think “The Big Lebowski,” “How High,” “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” or the freewheeling Dave Chappelle vehicle “Half Baked.”This year’s entry in the weed genre is “Ripped,” and, no, it doesn’t come anywhere near the level of comedy or, in some cases, artistic achievement of its predecessors.
An unremarkable accountant (Jim O’Heir) sets out to become a stand-up comic in Ned Crowley’s feverish farce about a killing spree that fuels hit monologues. Rating: 3 stars out of 4. Familiar movie and pop-cultural references whirl maniacally by in Ned Crowley’s sinister “Middle Man,” like a circling carousel of friendly horse figures erupting into terrifying hyperspeed.
This historical documentary offers insights into the rise of the Khmer Rouge in 1970s Cambodia, and how the nation has not fully come to terms with its years of genocide. Rated 4 stars out of 4. When lengthy genocides finally end, survivors sometimes refuse to share information with upcoming generations about what they endured. On a national level, that collective amnesia can make it difficult for a country to move forward and teach younger people cautionary lessons.
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".
