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: Transformers
Date: 2007

Vitals: A boy befriends his alien robot car, and discovers he may be the only person on Earth who can rescue the human race from an evil alien robot named Megatron, from the planet Cybertron, who is trying to do something bad.

Famous names: Michael Bay, Shia LeBouf

Crunchy goodness: 2

Bang for your buck: Bay hosed his special effects team with cash so that they could make the transformers look awesomely cool. Results are debatable: some have hailed the car-to-robot transformation sequences as awesome, others have called them an awful blur of nothing-specialness.


Life lesson: Cars dig hot chicks.

Sight you'll never unsee: Glimpses of the Transformers' genitalia as they transform, and one bizarre moment when one of the Transformers actually "pees" oil on another character.
