5 of the Best Movies on Hulu Right Now





Hulu is among the most popular VOD services out there, and deservedly so. With over 30 million users traversing a robust menu of popular titles – from tense thrillers to side-splitting comedies – there’s more than enough good content to go around. 

The “best” available might change depending on your mood or the season. But here are 5 movie titles to stream on Hulu that we think are pretty close to the top right now:

Booksmart (Comedy)

Two best friends who’ve just graduated high school at the top of their class realize they’ve never let loose to have any teenage fun. In a sudden attack of FOMO, they set out to cram four years worth of high school fun into one night.

This 2019 coming-of-age comedy (and directorial debut from actress Olivia Wilde) made a lot of noise among young adults and fans of the classic “one crazy night” adventure movies.

Luce (Drama)

Model student and adopted son, Luce suddenly raises a lot of questions after writing a disturbing class essay. Luce’s parents are at first skeptical of any issues, but his teacher remains suspicious. As the questions persist, Luce’s perfect image begins to fade in the eyes of everyone around him.

This drama kind of flew under the radar, but was no less affecting. Posing questions about social class, profiling and intervention, this is a thought-provoking and well-acted film. 

Mission Impossible: Fallout (Action)

IMF agent Ethan Hunt and his team find themselves having to trust the CIA to complete their latest impossible mission: cleaning up after their last one. After thwarting a nuclear attack by a terrorist group, the team loses something valuable. And if they don’t get it back in time, it may fall into the wrong hands.

Why stream it?

How long can Tom Cruise keep this up? As long as he wants if the action is this good. The sixth entry in the Mission Impossible franchise is wall-to-wall action with a propulsive plot to go with it. Old allies, old enemies and a not-so-old Tom Cruise makes this one a fun stream.

Parasite (Thriller)

How far does desperation have to go before it becomes greed? How thinly can resourcefulness be stretched before it becomes resentment? These two Korean families may hold the answers.

Why stream it?

Many would call this one a masterpiece by Korean filmmaker, Bong Joon Ho. It took the movie world by storm in 2019, racking up a boatload of awards including the Academy Award for Best Picture (the first non-English speaking film to do so). Go in cold and prepare to be blown away.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (Family)    

Once the awkward outcast, Hiccup is now the leader of his Viking clan living in harmony with Toothless and the other dragons. All is well until a female Night Fury, of whom Toothless was believed to be the last, suddenly appears. This sparks a myriad of questions about the world they know and a hidden one they don’t. 

Why stream it?

This caps the popular Dreamworks film trilogy that’s based on a children’s book series. As with many family series, this final installment is about growing up and moving on – just with dragons. Great animation, great voice acting and touching story make this one a good group streaming option.
