A large part of our English class is identification and analysis of film themes, and using these film themes in exams to answer questions (a few examples across different levels).

Are questions about the identification and analysis of film themes on-topic at English.SE, or would they be better suited for Movies.SE?

  • Such questions are not on topic on EL&U, but I can't comment on whether they're on topic at Movies.SE (I didn't even know that stack existed til now!). – Dan Bron Nov 10 '14 at 22:04

    Would the themes be the same in another language? – Mitch Nov 10 '14 at 22:50
  • @Mitch - I suppose so... – user72323 Nov 10 '14 at 23:45
  • Aside from the rare question about a line that is unusual or doesn't make sense in everyday English, these are largely OT here. Discussion and analysis is definitely OT. :( I hope you find your site (and if you would be kind enough to let me know when you do, I'd be very grateful.) – anongoodnurse Nov 11 '14 at 3:32

    @medica - Is "OT" on-topic, or off-topic? (From the context of your remark, I can tell what you mean, but I thought I'd mention the potential for ambiguity with that shorthand.) – J.R. Nov 11 '14 at 11:03
  • Sorry, OT = off topic. – anongoodnurse Nov 11 '14 at 19:31

You might want to ask on Movies. As it says on their help page:

What topics can I ask about here?

If your question generally covers …

  • Analysis of content or theme of all forms of Movies and TV series

That said, I'd be careful about copying questions from your class verbatim into a question, and seeing what others think. That kind of question smacks of "homework help," which is generally regarded with disdain across the Stack Exchange.

However, if you take a cut at answering the question, and you're asking for help on some smaller part of it, I think that might be your best place to start.
