Now, with the new version of MLA formatting, which is version 8, all source types use the same citation structure. The Modern Language Association enacted this new format due to the many new and innovative ways of obtaining information. We are no longer receiving information through traditional means, such as books, websites, and articles. We can now obtain information through apps, advertisements, Tweets, other social media posts, and many other creative ways. To make the process of creating citations easier for researchers and scholars, the Modern Language Association decided to have one MLA citing format, which works for all source types.
As you can see, only include the first author’s name. The other authors are accounted for by using et al. In Latin, et al. is translated to “and others.” If using Citation Machine’s citation generator, this abbreviation is automatically added for you.
A larger difference between Short Cuts and Magnolia is the structural texture. Altman 8767 s movie feels measured and calculated, but Anderson 8767 s seems out-of-control as it builds, hot and threatening to break down. Yet Short Cuts is actually much more arbitrary in its structure, and frequently ambles along as aimlessly as its characters.
This specific in text citation, (Tan 86), is included so that the reader sees that we are quoting something from page 86 in Tan’s book. The complete, regular citation isn’t included in the main part of the project because it would be too distracting for the reader. We want them to focus on our work and research, not necessarily our sources.
If your direct quote or paraphrase comes from a source that does not have page numbers, it is acceptable to place a paragraph number (use the abbreviation par. or pars.), sections (sec. or secs.), or chapters (ch. or chs.). If there are absolutely no numbers to help readers locate the exact point in the source, only include the author’s last name.
Altman is often accused of being misanthropic, but a better term would be clinical. In Short Cuts , Altman documents his characters 8767 lives largely from the outside, letting them hide behind big-city blankness. Except for a grieving couple, one never gets a sense of the characters 8767 pain, aside from the petty things that set them off. The audience sees the cop 8767 s affair without understanding why he strays. We watch the pool cleaner 8767 s jealousy at his wife 8767 s phone-sex business, but that alone can 8767 t explain why he snaps. Julianne Moore parades around without skirt or underpants, a physical state meant to show her emotional vulnerability, but it doesn 8767 t succeed precisely because the character is so withdrawn.
Magnolia is as contrived and controlled as the most convoluted concoctions of Steven Soderbergh ( Out of Sight or The Limey ), Atom Egoyan ( Calendar , Exotica , The Sweet Hereafter , or Felicia 8767 s Journey ), or Quentin Tarantino. It just doesn 8767 t feel that way.
Not only did Guardians of the Galaxy return to top spot on the international chart this past weekend, it reached two major milestones along the way. Over the weekend, it pulled in $ million in 77 markets for totals of $ million internationally and $ million worldwide. The film earned $ million in China, but that was for the full week, giving it $ million after ten days of release. The film has yet to open in Italy and it might have a shot at $855 million worldwide by the time it ends its run there. More.

This trailer also helps the audience understand that Magnolia is a movie of grand gestures and broad, simple sentiments, the elements many critics have labeled 8775 banal. 8776 The titles provide the most obvious examples. 8775 Things fall down. 8776 8775 People look up. 8776 8775 And when it rains, it pours. 8776 Jim Kurring (John C. Reilly) underscores this in his voice-over: 8775 And sometimes people need a little help. Sometimes people need to be forgiven. 8776
Notice that when citing an individual other than the author, place the individual’s role after their name. In this case, Leonardo DiCaprio is the performer.
Guardians of the Galaxy opened in first place internationally with $ million in 97 markets. This includes a number of major markets, led by Russia with $ million on 7,597 screens and the . with $ million on 559 screens. It also earned first place in Brazil with $ million on 977 screens. It wasn't as strong in South Korea with $ million on 575 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $ million.
