Must-see movies are futuristic classics that shouldn't be missed. Of course, not every must-see is perfect. That's why we've rated them 1-5 on the patented "crunchy goodness" scale.

Title: Starman
Date: 1984

Vitals: An alien crash-lands on Earth, and takes the form of a woman's dead husband to get her help. The two road-trip across the Southwest, fleeing authorities and searching for the alien's buddies. Interspecies sex and deep personal realizations ensue.

Famous names: John Carpenter, Jeff Bridges, Karen Allen

Crunchy goodness: 3

Sight you'll never unsee: Jeff Bridges' naked ass. Really, that's a super long shot of his ass, using only the flimsy excuse that aliens don't understand nudity.

Stunt casting: It was something of a stunt to put horror maven John Carpenter at the helm of what is essentially a quiet love story with a couple of aliens and a chase scene. The man who created Snake Plisskin and Michael Meyers manages to get it right, though, giving us an alien who is both recognizably lovable and impenetrably strange.

Copycat: In Contact, the aliens take the form of Jodie Foster's dead father in order to gain her trust and help her "understand" them.
