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: Men in Black
Date: 1997

Vitals: A secret government agency rids the Earth of various alien riff-raff, using an amusing panoply of cool weapons and well-written jokes.
