The Best of What’s Coming to Hulu in February 2018

on January 31, 2018, 9:00am

Don’t be fooled. Sure, that cyclone bomb in early January may have run its course, but Old Man Winter, Jack Frost, and any other chilly character you can name surely has some snow, ice, and frigid temps still left in the tank. Luckily, if you’re going to be stuck inside for at least another month, Hulu has you more than covered with this cozy blanket of releases.

Here’s a tip, though. Need a quick movie idea for tonight? How about PTA’s unlikely gem Punch-Drunk Love; the trio of Nicholson, Streep, and Waits in Ironweed; or even Mel Brooks’ classic Star Wars spoof, Spaceballs? I’m not trying to tell you how to Hulu (well, maybe a little), but these titles go away after tonight, and you don’t wanna be left out in the cold.

In the meantime, may the Schwartz be with you!
