Where to stream The Bad Guys

Everyone loves a good animated movie, and 2022 has given us a plethora of terrific toons for our viewing pleasure: Minions: The Rise of Gru, Turning Red, My Father’s Dragon, DC League of Super-Pets, The Sea Beast…the list goes on and on.

Yet there’s only one animated movie that blends the heist thrills of the Ocean’s Eleven movies with the wise-cracking all-ages comedy of the Ice Age films. Released in April of 2022, The Bad Guys was a sleeper hit, staying in theaters for more than half a year and becoming the second highest-grossing animated movie of the year. It’s now available for streaming so audiences can now experience all the laughs and action the movie has in spades from the comfort of their homes.

If you want to follow the antics of Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Ms. Tarantula, Mr. Shark, and Mr. Piranha, 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 The Bad Guys 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 Bridgerton. 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 it?

THE BAD GUYS | Official Trailer 1

Yes. The Bad Guys is a little naughtier than your average Disney picture, but not as insufferable as your typical DreamWorks picture like Shrek. Digital Trends reviewed the film and found it to be “a clever crime comedy for the whole family.” It’s the rare animated movie that plays well to both kids and adults and is a genuinely funny heist movie that doesn’t feel too long at 100 minutes.

Part of the reason is due to the talented voice cast that distinguishes the film from others in a crowded genre. Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Awkwafina, Craig Robinson, and Anthony Ramos voice the titular anthropomorphic band of criminals, while British comedian Richard Ayoade and Joker‘s Zazie Beets round out the cast.

Currently, The Bad Guys registers a healthy 88% on the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes and has a critics score of 64 on Metacritic.

The Bad Guys is now available to stream on Netflix.

Is the live-action Ghost in the Shell remake really that bad?
Scarlet Johannson in "Ghost in the Shell" (2017).

Ghost in the Shell, released in 2017, has gone on to become one of Hollywood's most infamous cinematic remakes. Plagued by controversy and lackluster reviews, this Scarlett Johansson-led film grossed $169.8 million against a budget of $110 million, making it one of the biggest box-office disappointments in recent history.
There are always going to be comparisons between a remake and the original film, and while there have already been many scathing reviews about the 2017 remake, let's look at whether or not this 2017 movie really is as bad as people think.

10 years ago, Breaking Bad produced its greatest episode ever
Walter White stands alone in the desert in Breaking Bad season 5.

From the moment Breaking Bad began, viewers knew that Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) lies and secrets would eventually catch up with him. For the majority of its five-season run, the series manages to create a near-constant stream of tension from that very fear. As Breaking Bad moved further into its fifth and final season, though, Walt only seemed to amass more and more power. For a brief time, he appeared as untouchable as the head of a criminal empire could possibly be. No one, not even his brother-in-law, Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), seemed capable of beating him.

Then, in one of the most brilliant creative strokes in TV history, Breaking Bad brought all of Walt’s schemes crumbling down around him within the span of just one unforgettable hour of television. The episode in question, Ozymandias, is widely regarded as not only Breaking Bad’s greatest installment but one of the best TV episodes that’s ever been produced. Ten years later, it still holds just as much power now as it did when it originally aired on September 15, 2013.
