Film titles are usually italicized or underlined, but not both; italics are preferred for all titles (of books and films, as well as television shows). Normally quotes are used for titles of poems, short stories or songs (whereas the title for an album or collection of poetry would be italicized). Cereal or other product names should be capitalized but need not be italicized or underlined. It should be Lucky Charms cereal, not Lucky Charms Cereal.
