Welcome the Hulu Days of Summer

June 16th, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Welcome to the Hulu Days of Summer! All summer long, we’re introducing great new videos every weekday — bringing you the content you’ve been asking for: great movies, more TV shows and awesome sci-fi flicks.

This week gets off to a great start with Lost in Translation, Sophia Coppola’s Academy Award-winning film about two lost souls who cross paths in Tokyo. It’s a gorgeous movie, one that I love not only for the sweet, sad and funny way it tells the story of Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) and Bob (Bill Murray), but for the way it juxtaposes the contrasts of Japan itself: quiet and serene in hotel rooms and shrines; brash, colorful and loud on city streets. And then there’s Bill Murray’s character: a washed-up movie star who comes to Japan to film a whisky commercial, a nuanced performance I’d never expect from this guy:

    What a great idea! I must say that I love the quality and sheer amount of content being added to Hulu! Lost in Translation is a fantastic film, I can’t wait too see what else gets added.

    My two wishes… firstly that advertisers wouldn’t keep repeating the same advert through each stream. The snickers one makes me hate their product and the air force one starts to feel a bit subliminal after repeated viewings. My second wish is for some episodes from the ‘A Nero Wolfe Mystery’ series (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0283205/) to be added! Part NBC owned, I think.

    Keep up the good work!

    Apologies for posting here but its impossible to find a contact address for Hulu.com.

    I get that Hulu.com doesn’t have closed captioning support for much of their content. I see the entry in the FAQ about it as well.

    But could Hulu.com at least make it easy to find the content that IS closed captioned? I don’t want to have to click and wait through ads for episode after episode to see if the “cc” is there.
