Lionsgate Movies/YouTube

There’s a lot to love on Hulu right now.

If you’re looking for the best movies on Hulu, you’ve come to the right place. While the streaming service is better known for its collection of TV shows, there’s no shortage of good movies on Hulu. We update this list monthly, so you can count on each of these recommendations being available when you’re ready for your next night in. Here are the best movies on Hulu right now.

The best movies on Hulu in February 2019

1) Shutter Island

Martin Scorsese gets to play around in the B-movie sandbox with this twisty thriller. Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo play U.S. Marshals sent to the titular island to investigate the escape of a murderer. Every bit of new information creates more confusion for the Marshals and the audience. Shutter Island is the kind of movie that is one step ahead at every turn, but even astute viewers who figure out what’s coming will still be entertained watching the pieces fit into place.

2) Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Bunch of Trailers/YouTube

3) Apollo 13

Ron Howard’s docudrama recounts the incredible story of how NASA raced against time to bring the stranded three-person crew of Apollo 13 back home from space. It’s so fantastic it’s hard to believe you’re watching a true story. Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, and Kevin Bacon give emotional weight to a movie that could easily just have been a thrill ride. Instead, viewers are stuck feeling the dread experienced around the globe as the world tuned in to see if our men would make it. —John-Michael Bond

4) Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

This 2017 biopic depicts the origins of Wonder Woman on the comic book page and the polyamorous relationship between William Moulton Marston, the man who wrote her, and the women who helped inspire her. Rebecca Hall shines as Elizabeth Holloway Marston, a brilliant mind in her own right. It’s a worthy companion piece to Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, one that treats its subject matter with respect and dignity. —Michelle Jaworski

5) I, Tonya

The main reason to watch I, Tonya is for Margot Robbie’s electric performance as Tonya Harding. The movie walks a tightrope by telling a story most of the audience already knows. The Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan feud has been covered ad nauseam over the years, but the film finds a new angle by focusing on Harding’s disastrous upbringing. The movie uses fourth-wall breaking commentary and an idiots-doing-crime approach to jazz up the story to great effect.

6) Young Adult

Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody rekindled their Juno magic with the acerbic and darker Young Adult. Charlize Theron stars as Mavis, an author who returns home after her divorce and sets out to win back her married ex. Mavis is a tough, compelling character, and Theron gives one of her best performances. Movies about characters struggling to grow up have become a cliché at this point, but Young Adult is sharp enough to offer an insightful, and funny, approach.

7) Arrival

Aliens randomly show up and strategically place themselves across the globe, with humans falling into complete panic in response. Most movies would take this set up and deliver a city-destroying action-fest. Director Denis Villeneuve and writer Eric Heisserer aim for something more thoughtful and empathetic. It’s a movie about understanding and listening. This sci-fi thinker is one of the best movies of the decade.

8) Damsel

This ersatz western from writers and directors David and Nathan Zellner is hard to look away from. The brothers tweak the typical Western formula just enough to keep viewers off balance. Samuel (Robert Pattinson, great) is traveling the Wild West to reunite with his lost love Penelope (Mia Wasikowska, even better). Samuel is likable enough, but with his clean looks and fast tongue he’s a far cry from the traditional gruff, masculine leading man you’ll find in these stories. The first half of Damsel is an entertaining and slight, but the film reveals its true, darker intentions when the two paramours reconnect in its second half. Damsel is an off-kilter Western that you should make time for.

Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing/YouTube

9) 13 Assassins

Takashi Miike’s samurai epic 13 Assassins, a remake of a 1963 film of the same name, is one of the Japanese master’s best films. It’s about a group of assassins (as you could guess from the title) who team up in an attempt to kill the odious Lord Matsudaira Naritsugu. The first half of the film is restrained as the team comes together and forms its plan, but the film’s climactic battle pays off the buildup and rewards the audience’s patience tenfold (thirteenfold?). It’s roughly 40 minutes of immaculately staged action mayhem. It’s pure spectacle that will take your breath away.

10) Disappearance of Alice Creed

This kidnapping thriller is an exercise in economical storytelling. It’s based on a play, so it’s no surprise that it makes great use of its limited sets. Alice (Gamma Arterton) is from a wealthy family and is snatched up by two criminals and held for ransom. Nothing goes according to the plan, and the clever script delivers a steady stream of satisfying twists.

11) The Hunt for the Wilderpeople

First New Zealand gave us Peter Jackson; now it’s given us Taika Waititi. Jackson makes oversized spectacles, and Waititi has built his name on small-scale stories with strong characters (Eagle vs Shark, What We Do in the Shadows). That is, until Marvel recruited him for his own oversized spectacle (Thor: Ragnorok). Wilderpeople is such a delightful movie that you understand why Waititi is getting called up while also being greedy enough to want him to keep making movies where his is the main creative voice. The Hunt for the Wilderpeople is one of the best movies on Hulu.

12) Blue Velvet

David Lynch’s 1986 film is, like so many of his films, a dream committed to screen, and it’s easy to see why it shocked audiences back then. Kyle MacLachlan stars as Jeffrey, a fresh-faced college student who (pre-Twin Peaks) starts doing some detective work after finding a severed ear while back in his hometown. This leads him to a singer named Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini) who welcomes him into her unhinged world—one filled with deviants, violence, and Dennis Hopper huffing gas. —A.S.

Park Circus/YouTube

13) Support the Girls

Support the Girls is one of 2018’s best kept secrets. This unassuming day-in-the-life story tracks the goings-on at a mom-and-pop Hooters knockoff restaurant. Put-upon manager Lisa (a tremendous Regina Hall) has too much on her plate, between indifferent ownership, dwindling business, and the personal problems of her and her staff. At first blush, Lisa comes across as the only adult in the room, but as the film unfolds and we see more shades of the supporting characters, it blossoms into something more thoughtful, empathetic, and heartening. 

Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing/YouTube

14) Baywatch

This remake no one asked for sets out to be nothing but dumb fun and mostly hits the mark. If you think you would enjoy watching super attractive people like the Rock, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, and other swimsuit-clad people run around a beach, Baywatch will get the job done. It’s a movie about lifeguards taking down a crime ring—you know what you’re signing up for. The movie is a (very) loose adaptation of the TV show, with enough winks and nods and expected cameos to please anyone watching for nostalgia’s sake. You don’t have to be a fan of the show to get a kick out of this new version, which is packed with enough jokes to help you beat the heat for two hours.

Paramount Pictures/YouTube

15) The Exorcist

No film encapsulates the hopelessness and terror within a parent when an unknown ailment plagues their child quite like William Friedkin’s demonic classic. Looking back, it’s easy to forget how long The Exorcist takes before it becomes evident the devil is involved. When all hell finally breaks lose, the profane monstrosity within young Regan is brought to life by a terrifying, once-in-a lifetime performance by Linda Blair. You’ll never look at your child’s imaginary friend the same way again. —J.M.B.

16) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2

For everyone who made it through the first four movies in The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is the reward. Not only is this the best one of the series, it’s also the only one that new viewers should bother with. The battle for the baby of Bella Swan and vampire Edward Cullen brings the entire supernatural world to the Pacific Northwest for a final showdown. This movie, along with Part 1, fully embraces the campiness of the story and things get delightfully bonkers. It all culminates in a supremely satisfying rumble that features more decapitations than you can shake a stick at.

17) Colossal

We’ve all had bad hangovers, but Gloria (Anne Hathaway) has us beat. In Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal, alcoholism is rendered as a literal monster, one that, in this case, destroys Seoul, South Korea, after Gloria spends a night getting tanked. It’s a monster movie where the monster is us. Jason Sudeikis and Dan Stevens also star. —A.S.

18) The Bourne Ultimatum

The latest, highly touted Jason Bourne ended up like most sequels: better in theory than in practice. But why dwell on that when you can put on 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum? It’s the high-water mark of the series (a claim that works for each of the first three films). Bourne heads back to New York to finally get the truth about his past and is ready to punch, maim, and kill anyone who stands between him and the truth. From director Paul Greengrass’s kinetic camera to Matt Damon’s fierce and vulnerable performance, Ultimatum delivers everything fans of the series want to see.

19) Force Majeure 

In the aftermath of an avalanche, a wife accuses her husband of trying to save himself over his own family as the audience gets a raw and sometimes uncomfortable look at a marriage on the brink of falling apart. It’s a gripping character drama, and there’s even a familiar face in Game of Thrones’ Kristofer Hivju. —M.J.

Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing/YouTube

20) Byzantium

As far as vampire thrillers go, this one is comparatively low-key. Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan play a pair of vampires who have been on the run for hundreds of years. They try to live anonymously, but when their cover is blown, they’re on the run again. It’s arty fare and something that may test the patience of some. Director Neil Jordan creates a beguiling atmosphere, and Arterton and Ronan are strong leads, and combined they help carry the movie through clunky moments. Even if it isn’t totally successful in everything it sets out to do, it’s a worthy effort with enough highlights to make it worth your time.

21) I Saw the Devil

This South Korean thriller pits two of the country’s most well-known actors (Choi Min-sik and Lee Byung-hun) as a cop and a serial killer, respectively. It’s a cat-and-mouse story, or maybe cat-and-cat is more appropriate, as Byung-hun relentlessly tracks and tortures the man (Min-sik) who killed his wife. The film is directed by maestro Kim Jee-woon, so you’re in good hands. I Saw the Devil is brutal and provocative, and if you have the stomach for it, it’s well worth a watch.

22) Requiem for a Dream

Darren Aronofsky’s nightmare about drug addiction will never lose its potency. That’s a testament to both Aronofsky’s skill and the power of the story. Ellen Burstyn, Jennifer Connelly, Jared Leto, and Marlon Wayans all do career-best work as each of their characters chase their addictions further down the rabbit hole. Requiem is one of the ultimate one-timer movies. Everybody should see it at some point.

DeFilmBlog/YouTube

23) Stronger

David Gordon Green’s film tells the story of Jeff Bauman, who lost his legs in the Boston Marathon bombing. Jake Gyllenhaal turns in a reliably good performance of Bauman, capturing his isolation and struggle as he adapts to his new life. Green does a nice job mixing in the personal story with the larger narrative of the bombing aftermath. While this is Gyllenhaal’s movie, Tatiana Maslany matches him beat for beat as Jeff’s girlfriend. Stronger embraces the struggle of people, and a city, temporarily broken but not beaten.

Movieclips Trailers/YouTube

24) Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist

During Michael Cera’s glorious mid-aughts run of comedies, he starred alongside Kat Dennings in this infinitely charming and funny rom-com. Nick and Norah, strangers at the start of the movie, turn their meet-cute into an all-night chase around New York to catch a secret show by the elusive band Where’s Fluffy. The movie is plenty funny, but it’s the relationship between Nick and Norah that elevates the movie above most of its peers.

YouTube Movies/YouTube

25) Hot Tub Time Machine

I can’t fault anyone for passing on another dude-bro comedy, but for those so inclined, Hot Tub Time Machine is a strong option. John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke star as four guys who combine a night of heavy partying and hot tubbing causes them to slip back in time to 1986. The movie has a lot of fun playing with time travel paradoxes, which lends even the less sophisticated jokes an air of wit. Hot Tub combines a likable cast with clever writing. If you’re in the mood, hop in the hot tub.

Movieclips Classic Trailers/YouTube

26) Fences

After a successful run on Broadway, Denzel Washington brings this August Wilson play to the silver screen. Washington directs and stars alongside his stage costar Viola Davis in this 1950s-set drama about a man grappling with the life choices he made and the repercussions they have on his family. It’s a powerful film, and you’ll want to keep tissues nearby.

27) Wonder

Get your hanky ready, because Wonder will do a number on your emotions. Based on the popular book, Wonder is about Auggie (Jacob Tremblay), a young boy with a medical condition that causes a facial deformity. After years of homeschooling, Auggie’s parents (Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson) send him off to school for fifth grade, where not everyone is so quick to accept Auggie as he is. The movie is a treatise on kindness, and is the kind of movie that will resonate with kids and adults alike. Wonder is an uplifting movie that wants to put good into the world.

Lionsgate Movies/YouTube

28) Heathers

Mean Girls before Mean Girls, Scream before Scream, that’s how I pitch this ’80s classic to people who haven’t seen it. It’s a satire and a biting black comedy. High school tales about the coolest of the cool and the people who want to undermine them are the forever-cool leather jackets of film.

29) Love Actually

Yes, I know it’s not cool to like Love Actually anymore. But whether you love it or hate it, it’s hard to deny that it lives up to its tagline of “the ultimate romantic comedy.” This story of intersecting relationships in London around Christmastime is both one of the definitive rom-coms and one of the definitive holiday movies of our time. —Chris Osterndorf

Love Actually CHANNEL/YouTube

30) The Big Lebowski

The Coen Brothers’ stoner comedy noir riff is the best. It’s the kind of movie that makes you smile just thinking about it. Nearly every aspect of the movie is calibrated perfectly. Jeff Bridges’ performance as The Dude is iconic, but do you realize how good he has to be to standout alongside characters like Walter Sobchak, Jesus Quintana, Maude Lebowski, and the excellent actors who play them? Bowling, ruined rugs, and marmots, have never fit together more nonsensically or more perfectly. I mean, you already know it’s great and if it’s available to you on any platform, it’s worth watching.

31) Joe

Tucked away in the prolific Nicolas Cage’s filmography is this 2013 gem from director David Gordon Green. It’s a southern fried drama about the cyclical nature of violence. Cage plays Joe, an ex-con trying to get and keep his life on a better track. Joe takes a teenager, Gary (Tye Sheridan), under his wing, but Gary’s alcoholic father, Wade (Gary Poulter), poses an obstacle to both. Cage and Sheridan are both good, but it’s Poulter who steals the show. Poulter was homeless when Green found him and put him in the movie, and he gives a truly great and terrifying performance.

32) Annihilation

In Alex Garland’s adaptation of Annihilation, we still get to explore Area X, a quarantined area of land besieged by mysterious environmental changes. That’s about where the similarities to the book end. The film uses author Jeff VanderMeer’s spectral setting to get in its characters’ heads. Natalie Portman plays Lena, a biologist and former soldier who is grieving the loss of her husband, Kane (Oscar Isaac). He was sent into Area X on a secret mission and feared dead, but he suddenly returns home—altered. Lena’s mission there is one of truth and redemption, but Portman plays her with appropriate detachment. We don’t really know her true motives, and fellow travelers Anya (Gina Rodriguez), Cass (Tuva Novotny), Josie (Tessa Thompson), and Dr. Ventress (Jennifer Jason Leigh) have their own reasons for going on an apparent suicide mission. —Audra Schroeder

Paramount Pictures/YouTube

33) Thelma

Thelma is about a lonely college student struggling to reconcile her religious upbringing with the feelings she develops for a fellow student. To complicate matters more, Thelma long-suppressed psychokinetic abilities begin resurfacing. The movie is a bit of a mind-bender, and one that rewards viewers that are willing to go on the ride. Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier is a rising star in world cinema, and this is his most challenging film to date.

The Orchard Movies/YouTube

34) Mom and Dad

Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair go off the deep end in Brian Taylor’s 2017 comedy-thriller about a mysterious event that causes parents to want to kill their kids. That conceit alone makes this film an acquired taste, but Mom and Dad also gives Cage the room to go completely over the top (like the scene where he destroys a pool table while singing “The Hokey Pokey”) so some dark humor seeps into the murderous rage. Cage doesn’t overpower the film. In fact, there are actually some touching, introspective moments between him and Blair. —A.S.

Momentum Pictures/YouTube

35) World’s Greatest Dad

This is a pitch black movie. Vin Diesel couldn’t handle it with shades on at midnight. Robin Williams is a failed writer whose asshole of a son (to put it kindly) dies in a very unflattering way. So Williams doctors the crime scene and pens a loving suicide note, which of course becomes the most successful thing he’s ever written. The movie is raw, blunt, and funny. By the end it even becomes something you can embrace, if you make through all the darkness.

Movieclips Classic Trailers/YouTube

36) Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

This is probably the last great film Johnny Depp and Tim Burton made, together or separately, before descending into parodies of themselves. Depp isn’t a natural singer, but his raspy voice makes for a good Sweeney. Ditto for Helena Bonham Carter, who steals the show as Mrs. Lovett, a role she was born to play. 2007 was a great year for film, but Burton’s excellent Sondheim adaptation is too often left out of the conversation. At the very least, Sweeney Todd deserves to be recognized as one of the best on-screen musicals of the last several decades. —C.O.

YouTube Movies/YouTube

37) The Faculty

When Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Williamson teamed up for this Invasion of the Body Snatchers riff, it was a big deal among horror fans. The Faculty may not be a classic, but it’s too much fun to let it be forgotten. Josh Hartnett, Elijah Wood, Clea DuVall, Jordana Brewster, Robert Patrick, Famke Jensen, Usher, and Jon Stewart head up a quintessential ’90s cast. The movie isn’t particularly scary, but more importantly it’s as entertaining as any popcorn horror movie out there.

Miramax/YouTube

38) Borgman

Alex van Warmerdam’s Borgman is a tale of a modern-day bogeyman. The titular character, played masterfully by Jan Bijvoet, slowly infiltrates the home and life of an upper-class family by simply asking for a favor. He appears to be a drifter in need of a bath, but this isn’t a typical home-invasion thriller. There are no masked psychopaths or bumps in the night. Borgman is from another realm—a shape-shifter, a trickster—and his increasing control over the family is even more chilling given a lack of real motive. —A.S.

Hulu

39) The Others

The Others may have been slapped with lazy Sixth Sense comparisons when it first came out, but it stands on its own as a superior ghost story. Nicole Kidman stars as a mother protecting her family in a post-World War II society. They’re sequestered away in their home, but as it usually goes in a lonely house, things go bump in the night. It’s a slow-burning film that comes to a devastating climax.

Miramax/YouTube

40) Déjà Vu

From Denzel Washington’s 2000s run of middling action fare, Déjà Vu is the most overlooked. It’s a twisty story about an A.T.F. agent (Washington) using a wild new technique to solve a ferry bombing by going back in time to look for the bomber. It’s directed by Tony Scott, so you already know there’s going to be visual flair. But his frenetic style pairs perfectly with the script, and the acting is strong (particularly by Washington and Paula Patton). Give me this over Man on Fire, Out of Time, or John Q.

41) A Simple Plan

Before Sam Raimi got snapped up for mega-budget fare with 2002’s Spider-Man, he made A Simple Plan, adapting Scott Smith’s bestselling novel about two brothers and a friend who come across a bag of money and the host of trouble that comes along with it. Paranoia and greed quickly grab hold of the men and quickly becomes the cause of their downfall. Top-lined by Bill Paxton and Oscar-nominated Billy Bob Thornton, the movie is supremely entertaining. It’s the kind of adult thriller that gets the “why don’t they make ’em like this” tag and carries the mantle until the next one comes along.

YouTube Movies/YouTube

42) Goon

There’s a growing realization that Seann William Scott is an underrated actor. Yes, Steve Stifler, the Stifmeister. That guy. Scott has had woefully few opportunities to show his chops, but in movies like The Promotion and especially Goon, he gets to show off a deftness for more subtle humor and emotions than American Pie demanded. In Goon, he plays a hockey player who excels only at fighting, but it’s his ticket to a brief respite from the drudgery life has waiting for him. Goon proved to be a cult hit, and Goon 2 is in the can and awaiting release in the U.S.

Adam Broadley/YouTube

43) Ingrid Goes West

Single White Female gets a social media twist in Ingrid Goes West. Aubrey Plaza plays the obsessive Ingrid, who sets her sights on a prolific Instagram star, played with bubbly energy by Elizabeth Olsen. Ingrid is a character right in Plaza’s wheelhouse, and she’s exactly as good as you think she would be as an angry, socially awkward young woman. The breakout star here is O’Shea Jackson Jr., who proves that his work playing his father in Straight Outta Compton is no fluke. The movie doesn’t go quite as far as its strong cast is capable of going, but the result is still a satisfying comedy.

Neon/YouTube

44) Tangerine

So many movies are given infinite resources and still manage to feel so minuscule that they might as well not even exist. Sean Baker’s Tangerine, however, is a testament to how much filmmakers can achieve with very little. Shot on an iPhone, the movie cost relative pennies to make, but Tangerine is a hypnotic, extraordinary film about the friendship between two sex workers. That bond is tested over the course of a very long day, and the plot’s simplicity masks its power. After finding out her boyfriend isn’t faithful, Sin-Dee (Kiki Rodriguez) goes off on a quest to locate his mistress. Meanwhile, Alexandra (Mya Taylor) prepares for a performance at a local club. Filmed on a stretch of Santa Monica known as a nexus of prostitution in the city, Tangerine captures the feel of Los Angeles better than any film I’ve ever seen. It’s simultaneously stylish, low-key, and groundbreaking in its authentic depiction of life on the streets. —Nico Lang

Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing/YouTube

45) Sorry to Bother You

Boots Riley delivered one of 2018’s most audacious films with his directorial debut Sorry to Bother You. The Oakland-set satire follows Cassius (Lakeith Stanfield), a telemarketer who finds more success than he handle by wielding his “white voice.” Riley, directing from his own script, has an anarchic attitude toward the material, which results in some blistering social commentary and inspired creative choices. In addition to Stanfield, co-stars Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, and Armie Hammer deliver dynamic, compelling performances. Sorry to Bother You isn’t for everyone, but everyone should get it a chance.

Movieclips Trailers/YouTube

46) The Good, the Bad, and the Weird

South Korean maestro Kim Jee-woon’s riff on the Man With No Name films is pure cinema. The titular trio is after treasure, but everywhere they turn there’s an army or bandits waiting to wreck their plans. The action set pieces are true showstoppers. They’re intricately choreographed and jaw-dropping in their scope. Movies don’t get much more fun than this.

IFC Films/YouTube

47) Jeff Who Lives at Home

The hyper-prolific brothers Jay and Mark Duplass delivered one of their best films with this 2011 dramedy. Jeff (Jason Segel) is a slacker who spends a day with his brother Pat (Ed Helms). What starts out as a simple errand turns into the brothers sneaking around to see if Pat’s wife is having an affair. Along the way the day turns out to be a major turning point in Jeff’s life. It’s not surprising that the Duplass brothers would find great, success in a movie centered on brothers.

YouTube Movies/YouTube

48) Beach Rats

Coming-of-age indie stories are a dime a dozen, but Beach Rats separates itself primarily through the lead performance by Harris Dickinson. Dickinson plays Frankie, a teen who spends his days hanging out with his deadbeat friends and his evenings online looking for older guys to hook up with. Frankie’s frustrations in exploring his sexuality and accepting himself are blunt and relatable. Beach Rats is the kind of movie that will always fly under the radar of most people, but those who give it a chance will find it rewarding.

Neon/YouTube

49) The Bank Job

The Bank Job is one of the most underrated films in Jason Statham’s filmography. He gives his fists and menacing scowl a break in favor of honest-to-goodness acting and the result is better than you’d think. Statham leads a team of robbers who take a job that should be a sure thing. But the deposit boxes the crew is after turns out to be more of a Pandora’s Box than a treasure trove. Secrets are revealed that threaten the job as much as any law enforcement, if not more so. The Bank Job is fun, smart, and has enough to surprises to stay one step ahead of viewers.

YouTube Movies/YouTube

50) Columbus

Acclaimed video essayist Kogonada makes his feature directorial debut with this low-key drama about a man (John Cho) who comes home to be with his ailing father and strikes up a friendship with a young woman (Haley Lu Richardson) tethered to the titular town. Every shot of Kogonada’s film is deeply considered, and the images are as well crafted as the architecture the characters obsess over. But at the heart of it are Cho and Richardson, who gives two of 2017’s best performances.
