250 Best Movies on Hulu Right Now
Last updated May 27, 2020
If you’ve made Hulu your go-to streaming platform, and you’re looking for primo good movies on Hulu, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve painstakingly combed through its library and pulled out the 250 Best Movies to Watch on Hulu right now, ranked by Tomatometer. (The platform also displays offerings through add-ons for other services like HBO, FX, or Starz; naturally, we’re only featuring movies that come with Hulu Basic and Hulu Premium.)
After Disney’s purchase of 21st Century Fox – and with it a majority control in Hulu – the service stands out in the crowded streaming market as a complement to Disney+: Anything that doesn’t fit under that strict family-friendly platform can ostensibly find its way here. Which means the offering is rich and varied (and sometimes bloody and profane.) Some good Hulu movies include blockbusters (Bumblebee, Mission: Impossible – Fallout), funny comedy hits (National Lampoon’s Vacation, Booksmart), and a few classics going as far back as 1923’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Hulu’s scary movie offering includes 28 Days Later and A Quiet Place, and if you’re looking for kids movies to watch with the family, check out Chicken Run or Hot to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. And, of course, we’ve got Hulu originals mixed up in there, like The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, Big Time Adolescence, and Little Monsters.
Due to the large volume of films available on Hulu, we only included movies that had at least 20 reviews, and then ranked them by Tometometer. Even then, movies at the bottom of the list have pretty high Tomatometers, and it only goes up from there.
The new movies on Hulu that have been recently added include:
Parasite (2019), Bong Joon-ho’s black comedy/thriller of class and deception, which one this year’s Best Picture Oscar.
Batman Begins, the Christopher Nolan trilogy starter that revolutionized comic book movies.
Rocketman, the critical and commercial hit about the life of Elton John.
Because new Hulu movies are always being added, we recommend you bookmark this guide, which we’ll be updating as they come in.
So if you’re looking for good Hulu movies, along with the best Hulu movies, and the ones right in the creamy middle between the two, then continue on for the 250 Best Movies to Watch on Hulu!
