    Re: Videoes and movies

    No, If we have to use this structure, that I have used in my sentence then like, there are 3 videos of Russel pieters' s or peters" or "Several movies of Jim carey's or carey". I think we have to use "'s". Am I correct. But please also explain the reason.

    Re: Videoes and movies

    You don't have to use that structure, and the suggestion was that you shouldn't.
    But if you want to use the inferior form, you can say "Several movies of Jim Carey's".
    Also, you should note that capitalising one of a person's two names is little better than capitalising neither. You just add inconsistency to error.
