Where to watch Bullet Train

Assassins seem to exist only in the movies or on TV shows. Think about it: have you ever encountered one in real life? Or heard about them on the news? They seem to exist in the minds of Hollywood screenwriters, who love using them as easy-to-watch protagonists in their works. The whole John Wick franchise is supported by the belief that assassins are not only real but are inherently interesting.

The 2022 action movie Bullet Train doubles down on the assassin angle by having almost its entire cast portray ruthless killers who are stuck on a high-speed bullet train in Japan. It’s a concept that stretches credibility, but also is a hell of a lot of fun to watch. But where and when can one watch Brad Pitt fend off countless hordes of assassins while still looking impossibly cool? We have the answers for you!

If you want to see assassins from around the world try to kill each other in very elaborate ways, then you should head toward one platform where you can watch the movie for free with a subscription. Netflix will be the streaming home for Bullet Train for the foreseeable future.

Netflix is still considered to be one of the pioneers of the streaming world. The subscription service provides thousands of hours of content in the form of movies and television. Netflix’s original programming boasts some of the most popular television shows in the world, including Stranger Things, The Crown, and The Watcher. In recent years, Netflix’s lineup of original films has included prestige dramas like The Power of the Dog and The Irishman, blockbusters such as The Gray Man and Red Notice, thrillers like Where the Crawdads Sing, and romantic films like Purple Hearts and The Kissing Booth.

Is it worth watching Bullet Train?

BULLET TRAIN - Official Trailer (HD)

Sure, just don’t expect a movie with much depth or originality. Bullet Train is all surface pleasures and its neon-soaked visuals and post-modern dialogue seem borrowed from other movies. Yet like David Leitch’s other movies, particularly Atomic Blonde, its breathless pace and tight fight choreography make up for these flaws.

It helps that the cast is fantastic. In addition to Pitt, there’s Aaron Taylor Johnson, Causeway‘s Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King, Andrew Koji, pop singer Bad Bunny, Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon, Logan Lerman, and in a cameo, Sandra Bullock. The movie overstays its welcome a bit at 126 minutes and is rated R for violence and all kinds of assassin-related mayhem.

Currently, Bullet Train registers an OK 53% on the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes and has a critics score of 49 on Metacritic.

Where to watch all Doctor Who seasons right now
Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor in the opening credits of classic Doctor Who

Doctor Who is one of the most prolific television franchises of all time, with its core series boasting nearly 900 episodes in total. There’s a tremendous archive of stories for fans to dig into, but outside of the UK, where they are consolidated on the BBC iPlayer, those stories are split across multiple streaming platforms. If you’re a completionist, watching everything may require some bouncing around, but we’ve done most of the homework for you.
Here’s how American viewers can explore the entire Whoniverse from their couch.

Most of classic Doctor Who is on Tubi
The majority of the original run of Doctor Who, which aired from 1963 to 1989 and featured the first seven incarnations of the beloved Time Lord, is available to stream for free outside of the UK on Tubi. Tubi began streaming classic Who in 2023 in commemoration of the show’s 60th birthday, offering episodes on-demand, as well as hosting a channel that streams the show 24 hours a day.
Tubi’s library even includes a number of animated episodes created by the BBC over the past few decades to replace chapters that have seen the original footage go missing. A sizable chunk of the 1960s run was lost shortly after broadcast due to BBC’s then-commonplace practice of erasing and reusing tapes of old programs that they imagined no one would miss. Some episodes are still missing, but thanks to decades of work by archivists, animators, and fans, nearly the entire missing portion of Patrick Troughton’s tenure as the Second Doctor can be seen once again, albeit in a different form than its producers had imagined.
However, there are some curious gaps in Tubi’s archive that can be filled on a different streaming service…

The best fantasy movies on Netflix right now
Matt Damon in The Great Wall.

Heading into summer, Netflix's fantasy lineup could really use a touch of magic. When the 2021 remake of Mortal Kombat is one of the top suggestions in fantasy, then Netflix has a real problem on its hands with this category. The latest fantasy additions, The Great Wall, Hellboy, and Conan the Destroyer, aren't masterpieces themselves. But they're better than nothing.

Aside from a handful of originals like Damsel and The School for Good and Evil, fantasy is just not getting a lot of love from Netflix. We really want to see this genre flourish on Netflix, but that's going to require a lot more effort from the streamer. In the meantime, these are the best fantasy movies on Netflix right now.

If you have to watch one Peacock movie this May, stream this one
Dana Andrews and Harold Russell in The Best Years of Our Lives.

2024 has, thus far, been kind of a strange year for movies. While there have been some marquee titles in theaters like The Fall Guy, and some breakout hits on streaming like Scoop, thanks in large part to the strikes that lasted for months on end, there are fewer movies than we might normally expect.

This temporary drop off in the supply of new titles is a perfect excuse to do a little exploring. While it may not be the most popular streaming service, Peacock has a library of great titles that are well worth exploring. This May, we'd recommend checking out one of the older movies on the service, The Best Years of Our Lives, which tells the story of three World War II veterans who return home at the end of the war. Here's why you should check it out.
