(If you do find a good print source, go ahead and save it to a folder--I'll tell you what to do with it later). This will help you determine whether you should choose that movie or not for your paper. If you cannot find the required sources for your paper, then you will have difficulty writing about it. Also, look at the sample sources I have provided (print, database, and web) so that you get an idea of what each one can look like. Notice the differences.
