    Breaking up paragraphs- Urgent, please help

    Post by IR on Mon Oct 11, 2010 11:57 pm

    Can someone help me breaking up paragraph and make it look nice. Need it now. Thanks and really really appreciated!

    1st one:

    Wall Street is a mess, a morass, a snarl of contradictions large and small -- a magnet for envy and indignation, fear and worship. Why should "Wall Street" be any different? The full title of Oliver Stone's hectic new chapter in the Gordon Gekko cycle -- a conventional sequel that is also a corrective, a parody and a sly act of auto-homage -- is "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," and the movie has an insomniac restlessness that is by turns thrilling and enervating. It is as volatile as the Dow Jones on a day of seesaw, high-volume trading, as Mr. Stone and the screenwriters (Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff) scramble to capture the cacophonous cultural rhythms of right now, not so long ago and some vaguely recollected bygone age when things were different. Evoking most directly those clammy, vertiginous weeks in the late summer and early fall of 2008, when the much-prophesied Crisis of Capitalism appeared to be at hand, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" displays a grandiose ambition appropriate to its subject. In other words, Mr. Stone, never much for modesty, subtlety or the careful calculation of risk, has written a much bigger check than he could ever hope to cash.

    2nd one:

    Somewhat less generic than its title, "The Town," directed by Ben Affleck from a script he wrote with Peter Craig and Aaron Stockard, is a solid, minor entry in the annals of Boston crime drama. Not as florid as "The Departed" or as sadly soulful as "The Friends of Eddie Coyle" -- or even as sticky and gamy as "Gone Baby Gone," Mr. Affleck's previous film -- it is essential viewing for connoisseurs of dropped r's, close-cropped hair and aerial views of the city that used to call itself the hub of the universe.
    A. O. Scott, The New York Times

    3rd one:

    Zack Snyder, director of "300," "Watchmen" and the coming "Sucker Punch," aims for younger males with the animated "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole," and a mighty strange bird the movie is. Based on the books by Kathryn Lasky, the film might be called (after Harry Potter's postal pet) "Hedwig of the Rings." What it isn't is anything like "Happy Feet," George Miller's charming eco-fable about penguins. "Killer Talons" is more like it; parents will find footwork of a more lacerating (if largely bloodless) sort.
    Andy Webster, The New York Times

    4th one:

    What makes Mark Zuckerberg run? In "The Social Network," David Fincher's fleet, weirdly funny, exhilarating, alarming and fictionalized look at the man behind the social-media phenomenon Facebook -- 500 million active users, oops, friends, and counting -- Mark runs and he runs, sometimes in flip-flops and a hoodie, across Harvard Yard and straight at his first billion. Quick as a rabbit, sly as a fox, he is the geek who would be king or just Bill Gates. He's also the smartest guy in the room, and don't you forget it. The first time you see Mark (Jesse Eisenberg, firing on all cylinders) he's 19 and wearing a hoodie stamped with the word Gap, as in the clothing giant but, you know, also not. Eyes darting, he is yammering at his girlfriend, Erica (Rooney Mara), whose backhand has grown weary. As they swat the screenwriter Aaron Sorkin's words at each other, the two partners quickly shift from offline friends to foes, a foreshadowing of the emotional storms to come. Soon Mark is back in his dorm, pounding on his keyboard and inadvertently sowing the seeds of Facebook, first by blogging about Erica and then by taking his anger out on the rest of Harvard's women, whose photos he downloads for cruel public sport: is she hot or not.

    I think they are too small to break up.

    me too. I don't know why she ask to break up the titles and paragraphs. So, should I just leave it as it is?

    Titles?? What the heck is she talking about? She expects you to break paragraphs into titles and paragraphs? I think its fine IMO.

    OK, here is the whole example:

    Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010)
    Alternate Titles: Wall Street 2, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Money Never Sleeps, Wall Street Sequel
    Directed by: Oliver Stone
    Rating: PG-13 (Adult Situations/Profanity)
    Wall Street is a mess, a morass, a snarl of contradictions large and small -- a magnet for envy and indignation, fear and worship. Why should "Wall Street" be any different? The full title of Oliver Stone's hectic new chapter in the Gordon Gekko cycle -- a conventional sequel that is also a corrective, a parody and a sly act of auto-homage -- is "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," and the movie has an insomniac restlessness that is by turns thrilling and enervating.

    So, can we break it like this. I don't quite understand the assignment either, but I don't want to ask her since it's turn in tomorrow.

    Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010)

    Alternate Titles: Wall Street 2, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Money Never Sleeps, Wall Street Sequel

    Directed by: Oliver Stone

    Rating: PG-13 (Adult Situations/Profanity)

    Is that is what she mean by breaking title and paragraphs?

    OK. Thanks Ahmed. I'll do it like that then. This class is only 1 unit and not really that important.
