Bond . . . James Bond, on Hulu
Break out the martinis, shaken not stirred. You’ll want one to sip with your generous serving of James Bond dished up by Hulu in November. A variety of the movies featuring world’s crispest, coolest spy’s movies will be online as of November 1.
Or maybe you’ll just need a martini to deal with the marathon of testosterone-fueled man-dreams that your significant other wants to watch. After “Dr. No,” (1963) “For Your Eyes Only,” (1981) “From Russia with Love,” (1964) “Goldeneye,” (1995), “The Spy Who Loved Me,” (1977) and “Goldfinger,” (1964) you may just be nearing your fill of car chases, explosions, weapons and bikini-clad women.
Romantic Comedies coming to Hulu
Had enough Bond? You can trade that martini for a strawberry daiquiri and indulge in the utter frothiness of “13 Going on 30,” Jennifer Garner’s 2004 foray into the world of romantic comedy (and “Big”-style accelerated aging.) Or go for Anne Hathaway’s medieval fairy tale of the same year, “Ella Enchanted,” and spend the rest of the day trying to get “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” out of your head–specifically, the movie’s version complete with delightfully anachronistic costumes and perfectly choreographed knights, fairies, and elves. Chase it with the entire series of “Blossom,” coming November 21.
Comedies and cartoons coming to Hulu
If that’s not quite enough to make you smile, a few classic comedies are on hand as well, including “Airplane!” (1980) and its 1982 sequel. Then again, call that a sequel? This is a sequel.
“Crocodile Dundee” (1986) and its 1988 follow-up will bring back all your childhood memories of feigning a bad Australian accent.
Or maybe your little kids are around and it’s more of a chocolate-milk sort of moment. Hulu has you covered for that too. Hulu is bringing on a few oldie-but-goodie Disney movies including “The Rescuers” (1977) and “The Aristocats” (1970), which seems to be experiencing a resurgence of interest lately. Make sure your children watch the latter so that they get introduced to jazz by scat-singing cats, not Ryan Gosling in “La La Land.” It’s just possible the cats give a more authentic jazz experience.
Holiday movies coming to Hulu
Those of you out there who are already in an eggnog frame of mind will also find some holiday movies trickling in, notably “Bad Santa” (2003) and a few lesser known movies under the label of “Christmas classics.” You might have to wait until December for the heavy hitter movies though, as well you probably should.
To go in the totally opposite direction, Hulu is releasing the infamous horror movie “Scream” on November 1, for those who didn’t quite get Halloween out of their systems yet. If that doesn’t scare the pants off of you, then check out Al Gore’s 2006 film about climate change, “An Inconvenient Truth,” before it expires on November 30. Now there’s a movie that’s genuinely horrifying. After that, any kind of drink will do.
