What is multidimensional about a matrix? Like it has rows and columns but you wouldn't call practically everything except time itself multidimensional...

"Multidimensional" simply means that something has more than one dimension. A string of numbers would be considered one-dimensional, much like a line in geometry; therefore a matrix would be two-dimensional, as it has, like you said, rows and columns. I don't think time would be generally considered multidimensional in most practical conversations, but rather as the 4th dimension, in addition to the 3 dimensions of space.

I had never heard of it, but I got it from the clue. People will still be able to do that in five years.

Oh yeah, good point. I’m more just complaining about subpar Netflix movies in general.

Yeah, I debated whether to put that one in or not. It's not a great movie, but it does have its moments. I decided to use it because I wanted to include some newer movies and because, even though its Netflix, it stars two of the biggest actors in Hollywood.

It's certainly 3 at least - Dicaprio, Lawrence and Streep. Jury's still out on Chalamet, and Blanchett probably isn't quite there. but the top 3 are undeniable. Not that great of a movie, but I think it will probably stand the test of time, especially after the polar icecaps melt and future generations wonder about how we let that happen.

Cate Blanchett 'isn't quite there?'

The woman has 8 Oscar nominations and 2 wins (the same figures as for Marlon Brando and Jack Lemmon). There are only three women in all of Hollywood history who have been nominated more than Cate Blanchett - Streep, Katharine Hepburn, and Bette Davis.

To compare, Jennifer Lawrence has 4 nominations and 1 win, and DiCaprio has 6 nominations and 1 win.

It was definitely way more popular than the vast majority of what Netflix puts out, I know a lot of people who have seen it.

Surely the movie was about the fact that everyone is ignoring AI risk. Right? Right?

Notre Dame should be accepter without a hyphen.

Level 55
Feb 3, 2022
Agreed. The 1996 Disney movie does not have the hyphen. The original book and the actual place in Paris do, but this is a quiz about movies, so it should accept it without.

hyphens never matter on Jetpunk quizzes. Notre-Dame isn't accepted with or without the hyphen. Hunchback is accepted without the rest of the title, though. ;)

It certainly didn't accept just 'hunchback' when I first tried the quiz... but if it does now, all good.

Maybe change "This is" to "I'm telling you," so as to differentiate it from what's in the answer.
