If I torrent 2-3 movies a year and 3-4 books is it worth it for me to get a VPN? Also, should I be at all worried about streaming movies online?

As clearly stated in our rules, we do not provide any assistance with torrents. I will however leave this open to answer your second question regarding streaming movies only.

If you're referring to illegal streaming services, yes you should be worried. Like torrents, they can get you infected. Stick with services like Netflix and you'll be fine.

Not to mention the DMCA law pushed through by the RIAA/MPAA provides them full authority to monitor and track illegal streaming/downloading activities of copyrighted material on the Internet. This includes them being able to ask ISP for log data to support any legal action they want to take against you or to request ISPs to terminate your Internet service if you ignore any warnings to cease and desist.
