Titanic - Wrong Lighting
The lighting in the sinking sequence is wrong. The Titanic sunk on a moonless night so it would have been nearly pitch black after the ship's lights went out.

If there was no light, we could not have seen the whole seen take place. They had to change the lighting for the movie.

I'm sure they knew that, but American audiences wouldn't have accepted the climax to the film a blank screen with the sound of the ship breaking up, and people screaming. It would of ruined the film. (If Leo, and pop-culture hadn't done it already)

The night the Titanic sank, it was a moon-less night, but many survivors commented on the fact that they "had never seen so many stars in the sky". If you've ever been out in the country, away from the distraction of city lights, on a moon-less night, then yes, it can be very bright. Still, it probably wasn't as bright as it's portrayed in the film, which is totally acceptable to this viewer.

Hmm...let's think about this...if they made the screen as dark as it should have been, would be able to see anything? I don't think so..all we'd hear is screaming and my all-time favorite cheesy line- "I'll never let go Jack!"

I agree. If you go out, away from the city and other forms of light, and it is cloudy at night, it can still get very, very bright outside. The moon reflects in the clouds. I wouldn't have enjoyed looking at a blank screen anyway...there were so many witness accounts, I doubt it was pitch black that night anyway.

Ever seen any episode of any TV series set in space? They're always fakely lit up, when in reality they'd be much, much darker. Also, we hear swishing noises when the ship goes by, when sound doesn't carry in space. Sorry, I suppose this doesn't go here, but since _all_ of them do it... (Star Treks, Babylon 5, etc.)

How do you know it was a "MOONLESS NIGHT" was you there or did you read this somewhere and if so where?

This was addressed by Cameron in the book about the making of the movie (got it from the library). There had to be light, so they lit it evenly without shadows so that it would be accepted as having no ambient light.
