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. Written by Jason Shankel.
Title: Mad Max
Vitals: Mel Gibson's family is killed by reckless drivers who spout pseudo-intellectual/spiritual nonsense and violate each other's sexual boundaries. This role had no apparent long-term effect on Mr. Gibson.
Famous names: Mel Gibson
Crunchy goodness: 5
Sequels: Mad Max II (aka The Road Warrior), Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
Sights you'll never unsee: Anorexic, post-apocalyptic apparent space-lizard lounge singer threatening to "stick to (me) like a tire on a licorice road." That sounds painful.
Life lesson: Babies are not very effective speed bumps.
