Hulu: 10 of the best films to watch tonight

You really need to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show in person, with a bunch of people who’ve seen it hundreds of times, can recite every line, and bring props, such as toast to throw in the air when a toast is proposed onscreen. But during the pandemic, you might have to settle for watching it at home. 

The 1975 film is the famous one, but The Rocky Horror Picture Show was remade in 2016 with Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter and Tim Curry as narrator. That film is now on Hulu, so grab water pistols, rice, toilet paper, newspapers and other props and re-create the theater fun at home. Here’s our full list of what’s coming to the streaming service in October.

Generations of struggle

Also new to Hulu this week: The heartbreaking documentary Jacinta (2021), which follows a young woman who’s in the same jail as her mother, both recovering from drug addiction. Director Jessica Earnshaw follows Jacinta, her mother Rosemary, and Jacinta’s daughter Caylynn over three years, unwinding the tangled family history that’s led Jacinta to follow her mother’s path.

Bond’s back catalog

Daniel Craig plays James Bond for the final time in No Time to Die, which opens Friday in the US. If you’re waiting to see it, you can catch up on some older Bond flicks, as a bunch recently arrived on Hulu.

Start at the beginning with Dr. No (1962), starring Sean Connery in the first Bond film. This has possibly the best Bond girl moment ever, when Ursula Andress, playing Honey Ryder, rises out of the Caribbean wearing a white bikini and with a huge diving knife.

Move on to Goldfinger (1964), many Bond fans’ favorite film of the series, where Connery returns and Bond baddie Auric Goldfinger plots to contaminate Fort Knox. Look, we didn’t say these films were all that logical.

Other Bond films now on Hulu include From Russia With Love (1964), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), and Licence to Kill (1989). Serve up your shaken-not-stirred martinis and enjoy the flicks from the comfort of your couch.

Murder, love, literary genius

There aren’t a lot of original or fresh movies coming to Hulu this week, so this might be time to check out some films that came to the service recently.

Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.

Gemini (2018) stars Zoë Kravitz as movie star Heather Anderson, with Lola Kirke as her personal assistant Jill. Things start to get mysterious and murderous in the high life of Hollywood, and John Cho (of Harold and Kumar and Star Trek fame) shows up as a police detective who’s determined to get to the truth.

Love, Simon (2018) is a romantic comedy-drama about a gay teen, directed by prolific TV director-producer Greg Berlanti. It’s based on the 2015 young-adult novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli.

“Like the chorus of a latter-day Taylor Swift song, (Love, Simon) will lift you up, goddammit, and good luck trying to stop it,” wrote Vulture critic Emily Yoshida.

In another recent Hulu arrival, Keira Knightley plays the beloved French novelist Colette in the 2018 film of the same name. New York Observer critic Rex Reed calls Colette, “the most important woman writer in the history of French literature” and says the film “is the best and most lavishly appointed, gorgeously photographed period movie in years.”

In addition to the movies above, you can check out our list of best Hulu original films.

Best Hulu original movies

Documentary

Comedy

Plan B (2021)

Hulu

This road trip comedy covers familiar territory, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. Kuhoo Verma and Victoria Moroles star as odd best friends: one a straitlaced student, the other a slacker who helps the former track down a Plan B pill in conservative small-town South Dakota — within 24 hours of a regrettable first sexual encounter. Following in the footsteps of the fast-paced and fresh Booksmart, Plan B is a witty, bawdy ride that holds nothing back.

Romance

Hulu

If you like your Christmas movies with a dash of substance, then Happiest Season is one of the best new gems to slide onto your holiday viewing shelf. Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis star as loving couple Abby and Harper, who encounter a single spanner in their relationship: Harper hasn’t come out to her conservative family yet. Delivering all the warmth of a Hallmark card with none of the cheesiness, and bolstered by a stellar supporting cast including Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie and Dan Levy, Happiest Season is a smart, modern Christmas movie with emotional punch.

Drama

Nomadland (2020)

http://www.cnet.com/

Cortesía de TIFF

Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland swept up awards at film festivals and unsurprisingly won best picture, best director and best actress at the Oscars. Zhao’s a true workhorse, directing, editing and writing this contemplative and fascinating drama about a woman (Frances McDormand) who leaves her home to travel around the American West. Get this: Members of the supporting cast are real-life nomads playing fictionalized versions of themselves. See this extraordinary piece of filmmaking from the director who’ll bring her unique lens to Marvel’s Eternals later this year.

Arturia’s V Collection instruments now have native M1 Mac support

Arturia’s V Collection instruments now have native M1 Mac support

It’s now that much easier to use Arturia’s softsynths on your brand new MacBook. Arturia has released a free V Collection 8.2 update that adds native support to the (currently discounted) suite for Macs with M1 processors. That should improve performance, as you might guess, but it could also help with battery life if you need to play unplugged.

Other speed updates are in store. The update boosts the performance of 4K interfaces through a new framework, and presets from the V Collection factory libraries now load up to twice as quickly. You’ll also find ODDSound MTS-ESP microtuning compatibility for the Clavinet V, DX7 V, Piano V and Stage-73 V.

This might be an important update if you use softsynths for music-making. Arturia has a reputation for virtual instruments that are both meticulous and relatively accessible. This both makes V Collection more viable on M1 Macs and gives you more incentive to rely on digital synths instead of hunting down their costlier real-world counterparts.
