Parse & JS: Retrieving records with a limit

This entry is part 16 of 25 in the series Parse & Javascript

There are 4 movie records that were released in the year 2013.  Parse allows setting a limit to the query to retrieve a certain number of records.

To retrieve only 2 records:

<!doctype html>
    <title>My Parse App</title>
    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>


    Parse.initialize('5d3sro43zBGj8AMYqWND5bFYMzAan7f5P5euZm7M', 'hlRZZqAylA7Fmah4Kk6ma8WK7QCT4cHrxjafnnkI');
    var MoviObject = Parse.Object.extend('MoviObject');
    var moviObject = new MoviObject();

    var query = new Parse.Query(MoviObject);

    query.equalTo('releaseYear', 2013);

                success: function (moviObject) {
                    document.write('<h2>Movies released in the year 2013:</h2>');
                    var i = moviObject.length;
                    i = i - 1;
                    for (i; i >= 0; i--) {
                        var title = moviObject[i].get('titleName');
