THE good news is Justice League is not as terrible as you feared. The bad news is it's still a bloated, disjointed affair that makes little sense and a hash of one of the coolest superheroes. Justice League, the blockbuster mashup of DC's biggest superheroes (ie. DC's version of The Avengers) storms its way into cinemas this week. It's probably two movies too soon.
After stealing the show in the second season of Daredevil, the Punisher (Jon Bernthal), a gun-toting, ultra-violent vigilante on a vengeance path, has now broken out into his own series. Unlike the rest of its stablemates, despite its comic book origins, The Punisher is not a comic book show. It’s not even a superhero show. This is a straight-up conspiracy thriller with a dash of military drama and a smidgen of social and political commentary on gun rights. Who’da thunk it?
The psychological thriller is so tightly wound, every frame and line of dialogue has been expertly calculated to be uncomfortable, to unsettle. Your reward for sitting through such a film? One of the most ambitious, provocative and visceral movies of the year. Prepare to experience a low-level sense of anxiety for hours afterwards.
@dylanmalloch@newscomauHQ I’m glad you enjoyed the movie. But what these anti-DC charges seem to forget is that Wonder Woman has a 92pc rating on RT. How do you explain that if critics supposedly just hate DC?
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".
