The media streaming wars are meant to continue ceaselessly, which is good news for cinephiles who want an ever increasing amount of content to enjoy.
Hulu, which used to be a small experiment among a selection of old-school broadcasters, has now turned into a key player with an especially diverse library of films and shows.
Sturgeon’s Law is still applicable to the Hulu Plus content library, which means you might still have some trouble finding the best stuff.
Hulu Plus Movies
Here is our selection from the Hulu movie list, films that you will definitely enjoy watching:
In celebration of Spectre’s theatrical release in November last year, Hulu has included nearly all of the James Bond franchise into its library. Sean Connery, a cinema screen legend, plays the charmingly roguish lady’s man, Agent James Bond in this movie.
Goldfinger can be thought of as a defining Bond movie, and while there is much debate as to which actor played the ultimate Bond role, Sean Connery is the winner for many fans. Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore is one of the most well-known Bond girls, and one of the rare few to have been a villain to boot.
The Wind that Shakes the Barley
The Wind that Shakes the Barley is a heartbreaking and visually enchanting film that casts light on the effect that the Irish War for Independence (and the Civil War that followed it) had on people’s personal lives. This film by Ken Loach focuses on two Irish brothers who are against the British but have diverging beliefs as to how their country should govern itself.
The socialist brother, stoic in his beliefs, is played by Cillian Murphy, known for his roles in The Dark Knight Rises and Peaky Blinders.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1
As the phenomenon that kicked off in 2012 comes to a close with its fourth and final installment, Hulu has conveniently included Catching Fire and Mockingjay, Part1, the 2nd and 3rd installments respectively, in its catalogs.
This is great for those who have not watched the Hunger Games series as yet, and are interested in the final exploits of Katniss, Gale and Peeta.
