In case you’ve been living under a rock (or in a moving semi truck) for the last 10 years, let us clue you in on the king of internet traffic – Netflix Streaming. Industry experts have determined that the data traffic from Netflix comprises nearly 40% of all data going across the world. That’s a lot. Like, really really a lot. And it’s going to get bigger, due to the fact that Netflix has mobile apps for smartphones using the Android and iOS operating systems.
But that’s a problem we’ll just have to leave up to the cable companies. For now, we should just stick to what’s going to be available soon from the service, and what other movies you might like to watch that are similar. Are you equipped with a mobile device or computer that can provide Netflix Streaming? If you’re not, just click through the links we’ve provided to get yourself one!
Want a complete list of all Netflix Streaming compatible devices? That’s right here. We’ll just list the top five or six for now.
The Grey – dir. Joe Carnahan, starring Liam Neeson, Dermot Mulroney and Dallas Roberts.
This is one hell of a ride, and is one of the grittiest survival dramas in film history. After narrowly surviving a deadly plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness, a band of oil riggers must fend for their lives in the ice and snow. But thanks to wolves that view their presence as a threat, they aren’t alone. The threatened pack of wolves slowly, but surely begin to pick off the weakening crash survivors as they struggle to get back to civilization.
For fans of movies like LOST, Cast Away, The Thing, Braveheart and Dances With Wolves.
Terra Nova: Season 1 – starring Jason O’Mara and Shelley Conn.
Like your fantasy television spiced up with lots of giant man-eating lizards? Well, this show is basically tailor-made for you. In this sci-fi drama series, the Shannon family travels with other settlers from the scorched Earth of the 22nd century to the prehistoric past, where they establish a colony to give humanity a second chance at survival. As expected, when people begin to go missing and volunteer marshals begin asking questions, they find out that the early Earth was quite a hostile place for the budding nuclear family unit who are used to plenty of convenience and technology to pass the time. No longer. There’s civilization to build and dinosaurs to kill. Get crackin’!
For fans of movies and television like Jurassic Park, Stargate SG-1, Falling Skies and The Terminator.
Comedians of Comedy: Live at The Troubadour – starring Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, Zach Galifianakis, Brian Posehn, Sarah Silverman, David Cross, and Bob Odenkirk.
The newest faces of cerebral, cutting-edge comedy are back and this time they’ve got more friends with them to heighten the hilarity. Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille, King of Queens) hosts, along with old buddies Maria Bamford (Louis on FX network), Zack Gallifinakis (The Hangover) and Brian Posehn (Just Shoot Me). They bring in 11 of their professional partners in crime for an evening of edgy humor straight from the famed Troubadour Club in Los Angeles. And as you’ve probably guessed by now, there’s a whole heaping, steaming pile of colorful language and subject matter, so you may have to pray extra hard in church the morning after watching.
For fans of comedy like George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Richard Pryor, Louis C.K. and Mitch Hedberg.
Exit Humanity – dir. John Geddes, starring Mark Gibson and Dee Wallace.
The well-worn zombie genre of horror gets a new turn, as Exit Humanity puts the struggle against the undead against a backdrop of America’s Civil War. A wounded ex-soldier Edward Young returns home from a hunting trip to find that his son is missing and his wife has become a zombie. Edward sets out to find his son among the hordes of the walking dead and documents his story in a book. This one has lots of gore and guts, so make sure you’ve eaten already.
For fans of movies like 28 Days Later, Night of the Living Dead, Glory, Hell On Wheels and The Walking Dead.
CSI: Miami – Season 7 starring David Caruso, Mr. Caruso’s sunglasses, Mr. Caruso’s weird hair, and some other actors.

He plays a former homicide detective Horatio Caine, who leads a crack team of investigators and forensic experts in solving crimes on the streets of steamy Miami. Together they scrutinize the evidence to bring heinous criminals to justice. The series also stars Emily Procter as ballistics pro Calleigh Dusquene, Adam Rodriguez as underwater recovery expert Eric Delko and Khandi Alexander as no-nonsense coroner Alexx Woods. People get killed and there’s a lot of rock music and landscapes.
