Over the years, Netflix's customers have grown accustomed to a revolving selection of movies and TV shows. The company's licensing deals often result in some films disappearing after spending time in Netflix's streaming library. Unfortunately, it looks like the beginning of 2014 will mark the end of Watch Instantly rights for dozens of popular titles including Top Gun, Braveheart, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Netflix displays an "expiration date" whenever content is added to your personal queue, but the company has made it difficult to monitor those losses on a larger scale.

Thankfully some Redditors have proven up to the task; they've assembled a list of notable titles that are due to be removed as we ring in 2014. The entire casualty list — which also includes Being John Malkovich, Titanic, Platoon, and Born on the Fourth of July — can be viewed in full here. Keep in mind that just because something is leaving Netflix on January 1st doesn't mean it won't return at some point in the future. But there are no guarantees, so this may be your last chance to stream Half Baked, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and that awful Street Fighter movie.
