I was first turned on to Hulu when I found out that Sons of Anarchy was being shown there. The biggest perk for me is the Films section because they have things like old black and white classics to relatively modern-day releases.
Yes, there are a handful of commercials but each film only has about 5 commercial breaks and each break only has 1 commercial for 15-30 seconds. You can't get that on TV and it's cheaper than going to the video store so a win-win situation as far as I'm concerned.
It's also nice because you browse through the 10 pages listing the current films and check off those to add to your viewing queue. Some films have expiration dates of a few weeks or a few months and others have no expiration date.
Typically, I like to watch one film per night on the nights I'm not doing something and some of the films I've watched recently are:
- The Night of the Hunter
- Waking Ned Devine (GREAT!)
- In The Name of the Father
- Swimming Pool
- The Professional
- Requiem for a Dream
- Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
- The Fabulous Baker Boys
- Somewhere in Time
- Killing Zoe
- Nobody's Fool (GREAT!)
