  • Zach Braff's beloved indie movie becomes available July 1 

If you want a classic example of what an indie movie was like in the early/mid 2000s, there are few better options than Garden State. Braff's movie helped solidify the indie stereotypes like its melancholic lead and "manic pixie dream girl," plus it featured a soundtrack of indie music favorites. But looking past that, it is still a lovely movie about two people finding a connection and remains the pinnacle of Braff's movie career. 

Get Out (2017)

  • Jordan Peele's Oscar-winning movie comes to stay at Hulu as of July 1 

It's hard to believe that it has already been seven years since the phenomenon of Get Out, but time really does fly. Winner of Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars, it's always a good time to watch Jordan Peele's horror masterpiece, and Hulu subscribers can do so easily starting this week.

  • Classic cop comedy speeds onto Hulu starting July 1
