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: Back to the Future
Date: 1985

Vitals: Hip, guitar-loving teen Michael J. Fox travels into his family's past via a time machine stashed in a DeLorean car. By teaching his nerdy teen dad how to be cool, he manages to change the future so that his family is wealthy and can afford to buy him a big, shiny truck.

Famous names: Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover


Crunchy goodness: 3

Sequels: This ultra-popular, family-friendly franchise produced two sequels - one of which took place in an amusingly dated 1980s idea of the future, full of flying cars and handheld videogames.

Life lesson: Teaching your dad how to make out with your mom is totally awesome!

Stunt casting: Christopher Lloyd, famous as a weirdo on Taxi, is the mad engineer with the mostest in this flick. Too bad nobody but Nicholas Roeg ever figured out that Lloyd is actually a brilliant, versatile actor - catch him in Roeg's Track 29 for a serious dose of bizarre.
