I need some help with picking out adjectives and adverbs in these movie review examples.

'Toy Story 3': Alternately affecting, hilarious and heartbreaking and the most original prison-escape movie ever made.
A worthy finale to a fantastic franchise.
It's sadder and scarier than its predecessors, but it also may be the most important chapter in the tale.
The best movie of the year so far.
Do see this lovely film sooner than later.
In a summer that will be littered with bad sequels, bad 3-D and bad storytelling, it is a movie to be heartily embraced.
How the animation wizards at Pixar keep coming up with innovative and rapturous stories is one of the miracles in modern film.
This film -- this whole three-part, 15-year epic -- about the adventures of a bunch of silly plastic junk turns out also to be a long, melancholy meditation on loss, impermanence and that noble, stubborn, foolish thing called love.
Dazzling, scary and sentimental, Toy Story 3 is a daringly dark and emotional conclusion to the film series that made Pixar famous.

    I'll do the first two for you.

    'Toy Story 3': Alternately affecting, hilarious and heartbreaking and the most original prison-escape movie ever made.
    adverbs: alternately, most, ever
    adjectives: affecting, hilarious, heartbreaking, the, original, prison-escape


    A worthy finale to a fantastic franchise.
    adjectives: worthy, a, fantastic

    Adjectives describe (modify) nouns.
    Adverbs describe verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.

    The following is NOT an adjective: most

    You missed most of the adverbs and adjectives.

    Not movie or most. The rest are.

    And there are additional adjectives in those sentences.

    I get so confused with adjectives and adverbs... I know that adverbs describe verbs and adjectives describe nouns but when words like "a" I don't understand....

  • English -

    While "a, an, the" are considered adjectives, they do not usually have to be identified as adjectives.

    Please review the websites we posted. Study them carefully.
