Only time can tell what will turn a regular old blockbuster hit into a timeless classic, built to withstand the test of many decades. Some movies that set out to be "classics" quickly flopped, while other, lesser-known features quietly sneaked under the radar and became classics over time. The best classic movies on Hulu are great no matter how many years have passed since their release, or how many times you've watched them.
What are some of the best classic movies streaming on Hulu? The Blob might top your list. The Blob starred a young Steve McQueen, and told the incredibly cheesy monster story of The Blob, a giant mass from outer space that grows larger and larger with each victim it consumes. Fellini’s masterpiece 8 ½ is also on this list, as is Orson Welles’ take on Shakespeare’s Othello. Woody Allen’s unusual Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (*But Where Afraid to Ask) became an instant classic in 1972 due to it's bizarre subject matter. Plan 9 from Outer Space is n this list of classics as well, because it is widely considered one of the best-bad-movies ever made.
