Guest:What do you do with a movie title if you use it in an eassy paper you have to write? Do you underline it? or put it in quotes? Or what are you suppose to do with it?

Anonymous:According to A Pocket Style Manual by Diana Hacker film titles should be italicized when typed and underlined any other time. This is proper MLA formatting.
Anonymous:Titles of movies are italicized - (source - The Chicago Manual of Style)
Anonymous:You may underline movie titles or put them in italics.
A way to remember this is to ask yourself if it would be able to sit on a shelf.
Because movies, books, and such are able to sit on a shelf, you underline them.
However, if it is a poem, article, short story, etc.. these are not physically able to sit on shelfs, and in this case, you put them in quotations.
Something I learned in HS. Hope it helps.
Anonymous:according to wiki-answers, either underline or italicize the title of a tv show or movie, but put the title of an episode in quotations.
"The Gentlemen" is a very famous episode of the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Anonymous:In the old days: Anything you underline and give to a printer would come back in italics. So it is for all intensive purposes the same thing. If your typewriter doesn't type italics, you use underlines. If your thesis is going to a printer to be published, than I would underline. If your paper will only ever see the light of Microsoft Word, use italics. If your teacher/professor is over 40 then underline... or ask which they prefer. As with all writting, consider your audience--especially if the audience is also the one grading you.

Why are you asking the same question again when it has already been answered? In fact, you just copied the same question with the same misspellings.
Anonymous:Did you mean "intents and purposes"?
