Hulu is one of the best streaming platforms for keeping up with the latest Hollywood blockbusters, indie releases, and classic flicks we all know and love. Home to thousands of cinematic titles, encompassing everything from the black and white era to modern-day spectacles, there’s certainly no shortage of silver-screen content to indulge in. In fact, the only difficult part is figuring out what to watch when there are so many titles to vet through — but that’s where we come in.
As devotees of all things streaming, we’ve put together this rotating weekly roundup to highlight all of the best movies you can watch on Hulu right now.

In writer-director David S. Ward’s Major League, Margaret Whitton stars as Rachel Phelps, the new owner of the Cleveland Indians baseball team. Eager to relocate the team to Miami, the only way Phelps can get the team southbound is by bringing in a season of poor receipts for the team. To do so, she intentionally hires the most horrendous athletes she can find. Her scheming turns against her though when the players become more promising than the new owner could ever have imagined. Major League is great fun through-and-through, leaning heavily on the onscreen charisma of stars like Charlie Sheen and Tom Berenger.

In Jacob’s Ladder, Robbins delivers a tour-de-force performance, grabbing your heartstrings and pulling you along as one man dives deeper down a rabbit hole of doom, angelic chiropractors, and rapid-fire, rotating heads.
