With Hulu’s ever-expanding library of films, it can be hard to pick the good from the bad. That’s why, to determine the best movies to stream on Hulu right now, 24/7 Tempo developed an index using average ratings on IMDb, an online movie database owned by Amazon, and a combination of audience scores and Tomatometer scores on Rotten Tomatoes, an online movie and TV review aggregator, as of September 2022, weighting all ratings equally. 

We considered only movies with at least 5,000 audience votes on either IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes that are currently streaming on Hulu. (Documentaries were not considered.) Data on streaming availability, current as of this month, comes from the streaming guide Reelgood. Directorial credits are from IMDb.
