Streaming Movies and Television Shows Added in December 2015
Ever since Netflix stopped letting people know what’s been subtracted from their Instant streaming lineup, it’s been a little difficult to keep track of what’s coming and going in their library.
So the purpose of this post – which will be continually updated on this site as new movies and television shows are added to the Netflix Instant streaming lineup – is to keep you, the dedicated Netflix Instant streamer, apprised of what new additions should be watched immediately, or should go on your queue but not be considered a top viewing priority.

Best Netflix Instant Streaming Added in December 2015
Interstellar – Best New Streaming (December 2015)
New to Netflix (December 2015)
Now we’re back in the swing of things with plenty of great new streaming titles for Netflix Instant users.
Darkman – Liam Neeson’s transition from dramatic actor to stoic action hero of the highest order is officially complete, but Taken was not Neeson’s first foray in thrillers. Check out Darkman and see Neeson assay the role of a scientist who is transformed into an avenging superhero with the power to take on anyone’s appearance. Sam Raimi directing and Frances McDormand co-starring ought to sweeten the deal considerably.
Tangerine (Dec. 2) – The end of 2015 is coming up, so what better time than now to catch up on some of this year’s best movies? With that in mind, we’re happy to point you towards the positively kinetic Tangerine which, for a story about a prostitute (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, in a blazing star-making turn) simply trying to track down her cheating pimp boyfriend, remains engrossing and funny from beginning to end.
Matt Shepard Is a Friend of Mine (Dec. 3) – The life of Matt Shepard is permanently and irrevocably tied to his horrific and homophobia-fueled murder, but Matt Shepard Is a Friend of Mine chooses to go a different route in examining his life. If you know the name Matt Shepard and would like a more complete and rounded picture of the man, then this is the movie for you.
A Very Murray Christmas (Dec. 4) – It’s a Christmas special made for Netflix hosted by Bill Murray, and featuring Paul Schaffer, George Clooney, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones, Chris Rock, Phoenix, Michael Cera, Miley Cyrus, and Amy Poehler, among many others. Let’s not pretend we have to talk you into this one.
Queen of Earth (Dec. 22) – In the grand tradition of Repulsion and many other arthouse films about a woman slowly going crazy comes Alex Ross Perry’s Queen of Earth. Another one of the year’s most unique and interesting movies, this one is definitely not for everyone, but even the skeptical will marvel at Elisabeth Moss’ fascinating, mysterious, and increasingly unhinged performance. Between this movie and Listen Up Phillip, we’re hoping Ross Perry and Moss have a long filmaker/muse relationship ahead of them.
Black Mirror’s “White Christmas” Episode (Dec. 25) – If you’re like us, you finally caught up to the UK’s Black Mirror when it arrived on Netflix Instant, and you didn’t quit until you had watched all six episodes. Well, we only have to wait 25 days to find out what sort of twisty, quasi-futuristic business the show will feature when its makers try their hands at a Christmas episode. All we know right now is that it stars Jon Hamm, which is a good sign to us.
Other Great Streaming Movies & TV Shows
Since other streaming sites are stepping up their games to compete with Netflix Instant, we thought we’d highlight some of their best options. Everything you’ll see in this section is available from Amazon Prime Instant.
Transparent: Season 2 (Dec. 11) – We think we’ve waited long enough after the groundbreaking, brilliant first season of Transparent to check back in with the Pfeffermans, don’t you? That’s right; Amazon Prime Instant’s best original show is returning for its second season, and advanced word tells us that it’s just as funny, beautiful, and deeply felt as the first season.
Interstellar (Dec. 12) – Another entry in the canon of supremely adventurous and highly divisive Christopher Nolan movies, Interstellar is, if nothing else, certainly a feast for the eyes. Yes, the scientific dialogue comes a little quickly to parse and the sound is a bit of an issue, especially during action sequences, but it’s an ambitious, visually stunning, and surprisingly emotional movie with plenty to help you get past the cheesy parts.
Selma (Dec. 19) – One of 2014’s most justly acclaimed movies will finally be available for Prime streaming. Probably the best example of a historical biopic succeeding by narrowing the focus on a specific time in the subject’s life, Selma covers Dr. Martin Luther King’s efforts to organize a lengthy march to demand equal voting rights for black people. From the pitch-perfect cast to the flawless direction from Ava DuVernay, Selma is truly something to behold.
The Gambler (Dec. 26) – Directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) from a script by The Departed scribe, William Monahan, The Gambler stars Mark Wahlberg as the titular character who, like any story about a gambler, gets in way over his head when he borrows money from a loan shark to cover his gambling debts. Not a massive hit by any stretch, but it’s got Brie Larson and Michael Kenneth Williams, plus any chance for Wahlberg to break out of his usual hunky tough guy mode is a welcome one.
