by | April 8, 2014 | Comments

There aren’t a whole lot of new titles recently added to streaming services, but we’ve got a number of beloved classics, including sci-fi films from Steven Spielberg and Luc Besson, Sofia Coppola’s acclaimed Oscar-winner, and the entire Tremors franchise, among other things. Read on for the full list:

The Machine


This British sci-fi thriller is the tale of a scientist who crafts a sentient machine — and finds that the government wants his invention for military purposes.

Available now on: iTunes

Close Encounters of the Third Kind


Steven Spielberg’s strange, moody, and ultimately brilliant sci-fi classic is an important bridge between the esoteric auteurism of the movie-brat generation and the awe-inspiring spectacle of the blockbuster era.

Available now on: Netflix

The Fifth Element


Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman, and Chris Tucker star in Luc Besson’s cult fave, a visually inventive and gleefully over the top piece of pop sci-fi that never takes itself too seriously.

Available now on: Netflix



Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins, Matthew McConaughey, and Djimon Hounsou star in Steven Spielberg’s historical drama about the aftermath of a slave ship rebellion.

Available now on: Netflix

House – (full series)

As played by Hugh Laurie, Dr. Gregory House was one of TV’s most likeable misanthropes, and he helped to make House a consistently satisfying blend of hospital dramedy and detective procedural.

Available now on: Netflix

Tremors 1-4


Starring Kevin Bacon, Tremors was an old-fashioned monster movie with an interesting setting. So naturally, they made three sequels.

Available now on: Crackle, Crackle (part 2), Crackle (part 3), Crackle (part 4)

Lost in Translation


Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson star in this meloncholy dramedy from Sofia Coppola about a pair of displaced Americans sharing a connection under the bright lights of modern Tokyo.

Available now on: Crackle



Director James Toback crafts an intimate portrait of former heavyweight champ “Iron” Mike Tyson in this riviting documentary.
