What’s New to Stream on Hulu for February 2019

Magnolia Pictures

Hulu has been stuck in the third place position when it comes to movie streaming behind Netflix and Amazon Prime because most people still see them strictly as a home for next-day television. They have movies too, though, and more than a few of them are terrific gems that make Hulu a destination beyond last night’s TV shows.

The complete list of new movies hitting Hulu this month — February 2019 — is below, but I wanted to highlight the best of the bunch along with several others worth seeking out.

Hulu Pick of the Month

The Guilty (2018) doesn’t actually arrive until the 28th, but it’s still worthy of this coveted ‘Pick of the Month’ slot. It’s a tight, smartly crafted thriller focused on a 911 operator fielding an increasingly challenging call, and the camera stays with him throughout the film. It’s a single location thriller, and we’re not even in the location where the thrills are potentially unfolding! Crazy and crazy good.


Duos for the Win!

Movies about oddball pairings are often a good time as the personality clashes can bring fun, drama, and conflict aplenty. This month sees a few varied examples hitting Hulu starting with last year’s acclaimed The Sisters Brothers (2018) which premieres on the 18th. John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix play cowboy assassins tracking their target across the old west, and the film manages a blend of grim beauty and dark humor. Thelma & Louise (1991) has some laughs but is otherwise a far more serious effort about friendship and the struggles of women in everyday life brought to life by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon. Wayne’s World (1992) and its sequel, meanwhile, have no pretensions of seriousness and instead let Mike Myers and Dana Carvey cut loose with their beloved SNL characters.


Who Ordered the 90s Action Hits?

Lots of people have turned on James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) in the years since its release, but they can suck an egg. The movie still kicks ass despite the life-draining presence of Edward Furlong. Pierce Brosnan’s run as James Bond was a mixed bag, but two of his best come to Hulu this month with Goldeneye (1995) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997). Both are big fun, and the second features the always welcome Michelle Yeoh. Video game movies are not great Bob, but two of them are here for your pleasure anyway in the form of Mortal Kombat (1995) and its sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997). They’re exactly what you expect from movies based on fighting games.
