Hulu is a great streaming service that features many different movies and TV shows that you can’t find on other streaming services. It can be hard to find the right one without spending hours continuously scrolling and reading descriptions until one sounds interesting. Even then, after a few minutes of watching what you choose, it might not grab your attention and you may want to select a new one. So instead of letting you do all that work, let me do it for you. All movies and TV shows will be divided into genres starting with comedy, followed by action, true crime, romance, thriller, and children. Before you start watching, please check what it’s rated. I am not responsible for you watching an R-rated movie when that’s not what you wanted. Every movie and show is rated.
