'Tis the season! But just because it's a time for cheer doesn't mean you need to temper your love of scary-ass movies. Besides, we don't have the energy to pretend all is bright right now. A Christmas Horror StoryA fun, weird, oddly high quality anthology film with one of the better, more somber twists out there. One of the best modern Christmas movies in any genre. There's a 20-minute Krampus section that is better than Krampus.
The 20-year-old breakout actor spoke to GQ about his winning streak of great movies. Lucas Hedges is having a year. After a sneakily funny performance in last year’s Manchester by the Sea, Hedges showed up again this awards season in not one, but two Oscar potentials In Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri he plays Robbie Hayes, the long-suffering son of Frances McDormand’s already iconic Angela Hayes.
Netflix is great. It's cheap, it's probably sitting there—easily accessible—snugly in your top sites right now, and unless you are an insane superhuman who doesn't need to eat or sleep, you'll likely never run out of something to watch. It's easy to get complacent with something like Netflix, happy to spoon-feed you as many episodes of Frasier as you can possibly handle in one sitting, but as we're seeing more frequently now, other companies and studios (rightfully so!)
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".
