  1. Um, you meant “queue” not “cue” in the first question. It’s still funny, though, that he doesn’t seem to even know what Netflix is–he sees the movies before they are even released, no doubt.

  2. I’m 100% sure Spielberg had a lot of help in that (music) department – his name is John Williams. Nice try and better luck next time.

  3. Nice interview. Just one picky thing: An ordered lineup, such as the list of movies selected on Netflix, is a “queue,” not a “cue.”

  4. BU Today readers, you were right that the list of Netflix movies should be spelled “queue” and not “cue.” We made the correction in the article, and thanks for bringing it to our attention!

  5. I love the way so much of what I read, watch or hear relates back to Boston and Boston University. That one of Spielberg’s favorite television writer/director/producers is David Kelly. And I become home sick!

  6. Hi, Caleb,

    Nice interview – thanks.

    About nine years ago, I was having lunch at The Milky Way in LA. It’s a Kosher restaurant owned by Steven Spielberg’s mother Leah. My friend is a frequent diner there, and she introduced us. Leah commented that her former husband was from Quincy. I don’t know his relationship to Steven and didn’t ask. She was very kind and genuine, wearing bib overalls.

    Later in the meal, I looked to the other end of the restaurant and saw Steven. I had to laugh. My friend had been facing him the entire time and had no idea who he was. She really did go there for the excellent food!

  7. I think Mr.Spielberg is a leader in this world creating films that brings inspiration and exciting imagination to the world. From Jaws to Munich. I always wanted to b Indiana Jones! He is a Jew that bring together different nationalities through his multicultural worldy films. unfortunately my Rabbis and parents forbade me to go to Hollywood. How i would love to meet a unique human like Steven!

  8. I always liked Spielberg’s films, but not sure prestigious Universities should be giving honorary degrees to members of the entertainment industry. The degrees should be a way to honor deep intellectuals, not a shallow means of making the school look cool because it can get some big names to come to graduation.

    Frankly, I lose a lot of respect for BU when they’re giving honorary degrees to a guy who made JAWS and ET. Great entertainment? Sure. Products of a deep intellectual? Absolutely not.

    BU is selling out.
