Directed by: Ruben Östlund

Length: 2hr, 31min

Rotten Tomatoes: 82%

Available on Hulu: March 1st

This scathing critique of the art world, written and directed by Swedish filmmaker, Ruben Östlund, was nominated, and robbed, for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars. The film follows a curator at a prestigious and pretentious art museum as it unveils a controversial exhibit that begs the age old question “what makes art…art?”

2. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

Starring: Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Joanna Cassidy

Directed by: Robert Zemeckis

Written by: Gary K. Wolf (novel), Jeffrey Price (screenplay)

Length: 1 hr, 44 min

Rotten Tomatoes: 97%

Available on Hulu: March 1st

It’s hard to believe that this highly influential kids-flick-meets-neo-noir came out thirty-years ago? This was the first time director Robert Zemeckis spliced up animation with live action and the results still look as awesomely bizarre all these years later. The movie pulled the sneaky trick of hiding an allegory about the evils of gentrification into an adventure story good for kids without hammering the message home too hard. It’s also just a flat-out fun movie!

3. Kingpin (1996)

Starring: Woody Harrelson, Bill Murray, Randy Quaid

Directed by: The Farrelly Brothers

Written by: Barry Fanaro, Mort Nathan

Length: 1 hr, 53 min

Rotten Tomatoes: 50% — HOW DARE YOU??

Available on Hulu: March 1st

In my eyes, directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly had one of the best string of comedies out of any filmmakers in the ‘90s. Yeah, I said it! With their classics “Dumb and Dumber,” their masterpiece “There’s Something About Mary” and this film, “Kingpin,” they were pretty untouchable when it came to joyous gross-out humor.

4. Young Adult (2011)

Starring: Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, Patton Oswalt

Directed by: Jason Reitman

Written by: Diablo Cody

Length: 1 hr, 34 min

Rotten Tomatoes: 81%

Available on Hulu: March 1st

Oh man, does this one will make you cringe. This black comedy from the writer of “Juno” and the director of “Thank You For Smoking” follows the maddeningly immature YA fiction author Mavis Gary as she heads back to her hometown to break up her high school boyfriend’s marriage. Patton Oswalt’s amazing performance was as Mavis’ handicapped friend Matt was praised by critics, but ultimately snubbed by the Oscars that year. “Young Adult” will pull you into Mavis’ car-wreck of a story and you won’t be able to look away.

All of the “James Bond” movies

We can all remember the Bond franchise before Daniel Craig took the role to new badass heights. While Pierce Brosnan is pretty inferior to Craig as 007, these movies are still wildly entertaining and could help you get through the last icy weeks of winter. All of the Brosnan films are available as of March 1st.
