Perhaps this will help:
- Douglas Anders from the end of the 200th episode of Stargate SG-1
I quit reading science fiction in my early 20's. It's for children

Like someone already mentioned, the streaming market is going to bubble. The costs keep going up and will eventually match what we used to pay for cable.

Personally I use Netflix, Prime, and AT&T WatchTV only because I get it for "free" with my cell/internet service.

Oh yeah wanted to say IMDb has some free movies\tv shows you can stream. A lot of good ones. And as someone else mentioned local libraries have a ton of free content. When I was a kid they had like 20 movies, mostly Dr. Seuss ^^. Now it looks like Blockbuster.

Some free gems on IMDB:
Shutter Island
The Illusionist
Snatch
Silent Hill
Invasion of the body snatchers
Leon The Professional
Lord of War
Donnie Darko

For the heck of it, I checked your list against my local library. They have all of these except Leon The Professional.

The same for Streaming Video yields: 29,217 results

My local library has Leon The Professional and actually has the 2015 Blu-ray release that has the extended version. I've been looking for that for a long time. Thanks!

@BobHome In my case, anything that is not available might be available via inter-library loan. Though your library does not have Leon The Professional, they might be able to borrow it for you from another library or even a library from a different geographic region. My experience is that public libraries are sometimes very impressive in locating items for their patrons to borrow.

My sympathies are with you!
I read about things that are real. I learn more and don't require a leap of faith. I most enjoyed science fiction from the 30's 40's and 50's. The writers were more caught up with the story and less on The Dragon and the George
