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 James Rocchi.

Title: Logan's Run
Date: 1976

Vitals: In a future gone mad, there's no need to worry about the funding crisis in Social Security — because everyone's killed when they hit age 30. Logan (Michael York) is a 'Sandman' — a cop charged with finding and executing people who run from the system - but when he's put undercover to find the 'runner' underground railroad, he learns a few things he's not supposed to. The cheese factor is high, the differences from William F. Nolan's original book numerous — and the remake's on the way.

Famous Names: Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Richard Jordan, Peter Ustinov (Cast).

Crunchy Goodness: 3

Most Painfully Dated Moment: The design of Box, the protein-harvesting robot.

Life Lesson: Don't trust anyone (who tells you that you can't live) over 30.

Stunt Casting: Farrah Fawcett-Majors, in all her '70s glory.
