Sure, Hulu's got a great catalogue of current and recent TV hits, not to mention a pretty impressive originals lineup of its own. But sometimes, you're in the mood for something more classic -- a feature film that's stood the test of time, say. That's where we come in to help. We've scoured Hulu to find the best old movies from a range of genres, from action-packed Westerns to outrageous comedies, stirring sci-fi, and thrilling crime dramas. Below is our list of the 10 best classic movies on Hulu, listed in order of release.
Break out your dogs and perfect highlights: Deadline reported Monday that plans are in motion for a Legally Blonde 3 starring Reese Witherspoon and bringing back as many of the original cast and crew as possible. Legally Blonde first released in 2001, with a sequel (Red, White, and Blonde) in 2003. Since planning for the threequel is in such early stages, Mashable decided to outsource the idea from MGM Studios to...us. SEE ALSO: 'Home Again' is insane and I think it's my favorite movie of the year I don't know what Legally Blonde 3 should be about, but I know what it definitely should not be about: Elle running for president.

Picking the best (and distinguishing them from our personal favorites) was no easy task, but we somehow managed. In no particular order, here are the 20 best movies on HBO Max. It's daunting to pick just one Batman movie from the literal dozens available on HBO Max, but in the end the top spot could only go to 2008's The Dark Knight, written and directed by Christopher Nolan (Mask of the Phantasm, we will avenge you -- someday).

McNamara was an assigning editor for the Los Angeles Times Magazine, a feature writer for Life & Style and a reporter covering movies before becoming a television critic in 2008.
