Streaming Movies and Television Shows Added in October 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 October 2015
New to Netflix (October 2015)
Now we’re back in the swing of things with plenty of great new streaming titles for Netflix Instant users.
Batman Begins – Batman Begins – the movie that re-booted not only Batman but every single superhero to be featured on film in a grittier, more humorless light – still holds up, no matter what came in its wake. Joel Schumacher’s neon-and-schlock buffets practically demanded the edgy course correction that Christopher Nolan provided, and it’s still a gripping, thrilling watch.
Boogie Nights – Though it was preceded by the well-received Hard Eight, Boogie Nights was undoubtedly Paul Thomas Anderson’s breakthrough picture. Every one of this movie’s considerable 155 minutes is absolutely electric, buoyed by dizzying camera work, performances that make even the most slight characters fascinating, and a storyline that expands wildly outward before slowly and tragically collapsing.
The Bourne Supremacy – The first of the Bourne movies (The Bourne Identity) was a surprisingly lean, cool little globe-trotting thriller, but the series really took off when director Paul Greengrass took over for The Bourne Supremacy. Filmed with Greengrass’ signature disorienting immediacy, the series finds Jason Bourne determinedly off the grid, but naturally, leaving his life behind proves more difficult than he anticipated.
Beasts of No Nation (October 16) – From the Netflix originals department comes Beasts of No Nation, which is based on the book of the same name. Considering the content – a child soldier is drawn into a civil war in an unspecified African country – this definitely seems like one to stream when you’ve properly steeled yourself for the undoubtedly grim proceedings.
Results (October 22) – And lastly from Netflix, here’s a well-reviewed indie dramedy with plenty of likable talent (Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Kevin Corrigan) on board to make this the perfect ingredient for a night of casual streaming. Better yet, Results is written and directed by Andrew Bujalski, the man behind 2013’s wonderfully bizarre Computer Chess.
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.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – It’d be nice to imagine that talking about this movie here would cause someone to see it for the first time. More likely, we’re just alerting you that maybe the most adventurous, insightful, and perfectly bittersweet movie of the past god-knows-how-long is available to stream on Amazon Prime Instant.
March of the Penguins – Often cited as the type of crowd-pleasing documentary that wins Academy Awards (which this did, in 2006), there’s no denying the sentimentalist inside of you that wants to cheer for these penguins as they survive an imaginably cold winter on the strength of their communal effort. It’s informative and good to watch with children too.
Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure – The film that introduced cinema-lovers to both Pee-Wee Herman and Tim Burton, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure follows the eternal man-child as he tries to track down the culprit who took his beloved bicycle. As fans know, it’s one of the most joyful, quotable movies out there, so having this available in your queue at all times seems like the only way to go.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (October 23) – The Hunger Games series of movies have proven to be surprisingly involving, even to those who haven’t read the extraordinarily popular books upon which they are based. With part two of the Mockingjay series coming in a couple of months, it’s the perfect time to catch up on the most recent installment, if only to find out the fallout of Katniss Everdeen’s decision to revolt against the games.
While We’re Young (October 29) – One of two movies from Noah Baumbach to come out in 2015, While We’re Young casts Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a middle-aged married couple who are galvanized by a young, hip couple (Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried) that suddenly enters their lives. Though it’s certainly far from the deeply caustic movies that Baumbach made in The Squid and the Whale–Greenberg era, While We’re Young is considerably less ebullient than Frances Ha. Still, there are good laughs and interesting insights amid the bitterness.
