In the May 4 issue of Entertainment Weekly, editor Jess Cagle wrote about movie mistakes.
"At the end of the original 1997 film, when Kate Winslet gazes up at the stars while floating in the ocean..., she's looking at the wrong set of stars -- stars that would not have been visible in the North Atlantic night sky of April 15, 1912. Told of the mistake by an astrophysicist, Cameron corrected the constellations for the new 3-D version."
"An astrophysicist," he wrote. Dude, give credit where credit is due. I wrote EW a letter because I'm a big nerd. And because, frankly, if you're tapped into pop culture, you'd probably mention Tyson by name and just call Cameron "a director." Seriously, who really gives a shit about James Cameron?
Here's my letter:
Good day. I said good day, sir.
