  • Insightful, funny, everything you could ask for

    Don’t listen to many movie podcasts because they don’t provide me with enough insightful commentary but Hit Factory is always required listening

  • Thoughtful, challenging and interesting.

    Great show! I don’t love every movie Hit Factory covers, I don’t agree with their taste 100% of the time, but I absolutely DO listen to the show regularly and get quite a bit out of it. Aaron and Carlee have an easy rapport with their guests and make a full meal over every film, exploring aspects of it that other shows wouldn’t bother with or be dedicated enough to follow up on. Honestly one of the better movie podcasts out there.

  • Dune take make my pee pee hurt

    Grrrr how dare Aaron insult Dennis Villenawayvay. Denny’s is the greatest, he makes profound films about profound questions like “Maybe the U.S. Military’s presence in Mexico is *GASP bad??!!!” and “What if Dune was more orientalist?” Aaron and his podcast could never.

  • The End of History’s History through 90s cinema

    Discovering this podcast via Twitter was like a lightning rod. It aided in resuscitating my dormant love and passion for cinema which I thought had been lost. Aaron and Carlee always deliver considered, ardent analysis of our 90s cultural artifacts and have exposed me to a few unknown gems. They have my sword and shield forever.
