Thieves capture the attention of the media, just as they capture the gems they are trying to steal. And Hulu is attempting to steal your viewing hours with its vast library of documentaries, including The Jewel Thief, which was added to the streaming service in July. Interested in more jewels? We’ve stolen the intel on the best documentaries on Hulu.
And while you’re here, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Disney Bundle, which gets you Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ for just $14 a month. That’s basically the same price for two of the services, only you’re getting the third one gratis. Sweet.

Rapper XXXTentacion was killed during a robbery at the age of 20. Despite his brief life, the rapper became widely known for hit songs such as Sad, a more depressing, inwards look at a hip-hop star. He also became equally known for a variety of horrendous acts such as when he was awaiting trial on felony charges of aggravated battery and home invasion at the time of his murder, he allegedly beat his pregnant girlfriend.
The documentary takes an unflinching look at XXXTentacion’s brief time in the spotlight, for better or worse. There is a redemptive arc in the movie, but it’s always balanced by the fact that the rapper did some terrible things during his life, and that will always be an inescapable part of a legacy still resonating in the hip-hop world.
GameStop has seemed to be forgotten by the vast majority of people, but not by investors. Recently, they put the short squeeze on GameStop, leading the stock to rise by more than 2,500%.
GameStop: Rise of the Players chronicles the squeeze from the perspective of those involved, documenting a historic moment on Wall Street. Most of the time, the documentary upholds the investors as heroes, which doesn’t quite give the full picture. Nevertheless, it’s always endearing to see individuals try to take on billionaire behemoths.
