Always appreciate the deep dive conversations Mike and his friends have about both popular and lesser known films. I often watch the movie while listening. Keep up the great work!

Mike works hard, talks hard and does a fantastic job recruiting very smart, articulate guests that know the chosen film front to back. Everything about this show should be praised and embraced if you’re a cinephile or just looking for an extensive conversation complete with interviews with the...Read full review »

Another show where I want to love it more than I do only because some episodes are home runs and others are strikeouts for me depending on the chosen guest. Really though there was a recent episode where the “r” word was used to describe something unintelligent and thought the host would know...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to The Projection Booth podcast for years and it’s simply the best film-related podcast for anything even vaguely “cult” or “arthouse” but with a very wide remit including films from many different countries and genres. When I see a film that I think they might have covered,...Read full review »

Had to bail on your podcast when your guests decided to use the format to get political. Coming from a Brit who grew up underprivileged, one would have expected her views to be exactly opposite as she critiques the man who endeavored to lift everyone through opportunity. I tune in to film...Read full review »

Fix this, and it’s 5 stars!
Samuel Stamp via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/02/22
I truly appreciate this podcast. I’ve tried out several podcasts about films and filmmakers and got so tired of yelling at my JBL speaker over misinformation, or guests who really didn’t know about the films they were brought on to speak about, beyond having watched it the night before. One...Read full review »

The Projection Booth is the perfect next step for film enthusiasts who have seen most of the IMDb Top 250, exhausted the AFI 100 list, and are getting a little tired of the Box Office Top 10 each year. If you match any part of this description and are looking for to expand your watchlist, look no...Read full review »

Due to the breadth of the subjects as well as the extensive interviews, this podcast is the one all other film podcasts are measured by.
doubtingtomjr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/22
The Projection Booth goes deep into the movies they discuss, with interviews and analysis. If your interest in movies is above average, this is a great podcast to subscribe to; they cover a lot of genres, spanning blockbusters to art movies. (The marathon episodes about Poltergeist, Conan and...Read full review »

In a market saturated with fanboys in their basements, The Projection Booth Podcast is both amatuer, and heights above the amatuer. Mike White has more than just 'let's talk about this film' he has a method of walking his guests through a film and methodically pointing out qualities...Read full review »

I listen to a lot of movie podcasts and The Projection Booth is one of the very best! Mike is a great host and does a nice job of being a knowledgeable guide through a wide variety of films without being condescending or too full of himself. He also has an incredible backlog of shows that don’t...Read full review »
MegaPhilip via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/30/21
There’s no more in-depth, informative, engaging, interesting, fun, and well-made film podcast. Whenever I see a film, I always check the Projection Booth archives to see if they’ve done an episode on it: they’re always focused, well-researched, and rich with analyses that are deep but never...Read full review »

The Projection Booth is really a delight — every episode is full of curiosity, interesting guests, and open-ended discussion, and I learn something new every time. If you love film, treat yourself to one of the Projection Booth’s deep dives. I’ve been fortunate to guest on a few episodes and...Read full review »

If you are a fan of film, you owe it to yourself to listen to the Projection Booth. Mike’s guests are entertaining and knowledgeable, and the interviews he conducts provide a fascinating glimpse into how films are made. He offers a broad range of films, from mainstream to art house and obscure,...Read full review »

I come to listen to movie reviews and not politics. Don’t bother with this podcast.
Drano55 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/23/21
I have listened to so many movie podcasts but all pale in comparison to The Projection Booth. It’s not just a group of fans giving their opinions, the broadcasts are well researched and comprehensive. They always seem to reveal new facts about movies I thought I knew every detail about. These...Read full review »

Would Sergei Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible parts I and II be the best film adaption(s) of Frank Herbert’s Dune?

In depth, a true cinemaphille’s delight

I have enjoyed listening to Mike and his guest hosts talk about movies for several years. They have introduced me to some new favorites. Their conversations are so good that I have listened to shows about movies that I probably would never see. Mike does extensive research and has great...Read full review »

I’ve never known anyone who knows as much about movies as Mike. It’s a joy to have all his goodness bottled up here in a podcast to enjoy anytime.
bigmacher via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/21
I'm not sure where these guys came from but cannot be more blown away by this show. Week after week I'm mesmerized by the focus given great films and questionable ones alike but every episode is a learning and entertaining experience. I've since gone back and watched a dozen old...Read full review »

Very enjoyable podcast about movies that goes deep into each movie covered . The interviews are terrific and Mike White asks interesting questions. Recent example : stellar interview with Elliot Gould in the Silent Partner episode.
manjicat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/21
Long standing best movie podcast, no comparisons. It’s better than reading a book or article about the film. No silly radio gimmicks or games, just straight discussions by people who love movies and do lots of research.
matthewj888 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/21
My absolute favourite podcast about movies - spirited, knowledgeable and often good humoured.
Kamula via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/05/21

Another good podcast ruined by politics.Taking shots at Trumpers and Redhats for no reason, except it's the 'thing to do'. Mike can't seem to help himself. Lord knows NO ONE will comment on the current administration Don't know why it's so tough for FILM podcasts to not...Read full review »

Engaging hosts and guests who know what they are talking about. Well researched and enjoyable conversations that go DEEP on these films.
mpf75 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/23/21
The amount of work and research Mike puts into these episodes is truly incredible. Well worth your time.
C-T-M '93 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/21
This is a great podcast for people that really love movies. Lots of interesting interviews with people that were in the movie, made the movie, or were just involved with the movie. Mike sounds like he’s talking through an 80’s cell phone, and I can’t figure why though.
Grae_cat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/21
For my money the best film podcast there is. Each episode contains interviews and a ton of behind the scenes information from the hosts. They tackle all manner of films, from The Magnificent Ambersons (a 4hr plus episode I've listened to multiple times) to The Adventures of Ford Fairlane and...Read full review »

I happened across The Projection Booth about a year ago because I am a fan of several co-hosts that appear on the show. That turned into a deep dive into the show past decade worth of shows that basically got me through the pandemic. Mike as a host is truly a film fan’s film fan, and I’m...Read full review »

Love this show, they cover the best films and have fantastic guests on to shed light on all aspects of film. This is where I got to listen to the ant wrangler from Phase IV! The Khrustalyov, My Car! Episode is among one of the best, but they’re all great. Love Mike too, brilliantly enthusiastic.
some bloke off the internet via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/16/21
Mike White is the hardest working podcaster in the biz. The Projection Booth is consistently excellent. Even a grizzled film lover can find much to consider here. If you love films this is a required resource.

These guya are informed, funny, and clearly love film. Especially genre stuff. But I wish there was more of that, So many eps are about obscure, Euro stuff I never heard of. . But every long epsiode about my faves (Conan is almost 6 hours!) is cherished by me on raod trips and at work/gym. This...Read full review »
Brunomac via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/04/21
The best part of the podcast (for me) is the variety of movies they cover—a great mix of old favorites, movies I’ve been meaning to get to, and stuff I’ve never heard of or had interest in. Each episode gives me something interesting to watch or rewatch, and then think about. Definitely...Read full review »

The Projection Booth has been my favorite podcast for quite some time. Actually it was the first one I subscribed to (what a useless bit of info that you now know). Mike is a fantastic host, and one of the only people who’s opinion I can respect. The same can’t be said about some of the co/guest...Read full review »

I will never understand podcasts dedicated to trashing a subject. If all you are going to do is tell us how childish & unrealistic movies are, why even do a podcast? Used to be a decent podcast but now it's just complaining & acting superior. You guys lost the plot.Read full review »
jEffigy33 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/15/21
The most research, the best interviews (and Mike lets the subjects talk without interrupting or trying to steer the conversation) and no nerd comedy. Not to say Mike and his cohosts aren’t funny, but there’s none of the “shrill dorks laughing at each other” noise that plagues so many movie...Read full review »

The podcasts themselves are good but this Mike guy is a bit too much of a lefty loon for my liking.

One of the best film podcasts around. Packed with information. Love it!
anonymous20493 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/03/21
I join the huzzahs here for the dedication and hard work that goes into producing this podcast, from tracking down filmmakers and actors for interviews to supplying smart critics for discussions. However, I’m not one who wants to listen to shows that are nearly twice as long as a movie that...Read full review »

A great podcast. Mike puts in a tonne of research and it shows. Some pretty good guests too 😉

I just found y’all and have listened to a few of your episodes and it was great. The Poltergeist episode is my favorite so far

I never thought a three hour podcast could pass so quickly! The host is very knowledgeable and his guests too. A funny, informative listen. Highly recommended!
Rocco Pasternak via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 10/16/20
I was a listener who became a guest. I have rarely been happier while listening or working on a podcast. Settle in for an in-depth dive into more films and ideas than you can poke a stick at!
dissolvedpet via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/06/20
Each episode is a delightful deep-dive into a film—some you’ve heard of, some you definitely haven’t. It’s a treat to go beyond the IMDB trivia and learn more about the films from people who worked on or studied them. You have to be willing to commit a good chunk of time to each episode, but it’s...Read full review »
