Questions

Subject: Film and Theater

TutorMe
Question:

How would you describe pastiche as it relates to both film and the postmodern society.

Amanda G.
Answer:

The postmodern society, in opposition to the modernity of the prior years, focuses on the rejection of “high-art” for consumer culture but at the loss of individuality and reality. Pastiche is the imitation of a unique style but without satire, and within postmodern society, it is indicative of the loss of originality and can be explored through postmodern director Quentin Tarantino.

Question:

How would you correct this student's sentence: This Tuesday I have a test that is going to be hard so I am studying tonight and re-reading my textbook.

Amanda G.
Answer:

You could suggest to the student that they use a comma after "Tuesday," to introduce the sentence, a comma before the conjunction "so" since it is separating two independent clauses. You could also suggest to change the word hard to "difficult." The final sentence after corrections should read: This Tuesday, I have a test that is going to be difficult, so I am studying tonight and re-reading my textbook.
