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: Demonseed
Date: 1977

Vitals: Grumpy AI Proteus is sick of being locked inside a mainframe and asked to solve boring problems like "world peace" and "economic development." So he breaks into the security system of his creator's house, imprisons his wife (Christie), and proceeds to rape her so that she'll become pregnant with the first-ever human/machine hybrid creature.

Famous names: Julie Christie

Crunchy goodness: 2

Ripoff: Fans of the 2000s Battlestar Galactica series will recognize a recurring theme of that show: like Proteus, the Cylon yearn to make hybrid babies with humans.

Sight you'll never unsee: AI Proteus having "sex" with Julie Christie's character via robot-operated restraints, a syringe, and a bunch of swirly digital blobs that look like a screensaver.

Life lesson: Don't run your evil AI on the same network with your house security system, you idiot.
