"There she is looking up. There is only one sky she should have been looking at ... and it was the wrong sky! Worse than that, it was not only the wrong sky; the left-half of the sky was a mirror reflection of the right-half of the sky! It was not only wrong, it was lazy! And I'm thinking, this is wrong."

"Neil deGrasse Tyson sent me quite a snarky email saying that, at that time of year, in that position in the Atlantic in 1912, when Rose (Kate Winslet) is lying on the piece of driftwood and staring up at the stars, that is not the star field she would have seen," said Cameron. "And with my reputation as a perfectionist, I should have known that and I should have put the right star field in. So I said, 'All right, send me the right stars for that exact time and I'll put it in the movie'."

Brilliant. That made me smile.
 
If you watch the video, too, you'll learn that Cameron's actual first response was:
"Last I checked, 'Titanic' worldwide has grossed 1.3 billion dollars. Imagine how much more it would have grossed, had I gotten the sky correct."
Now that's what I call "quite snarky"...

He posted this on Twitter a couple of days ago. I thought and still think it's hilarious.
Good for Tyson!
