Must See: Zardoz

Illustration for article titled Must See: Zardoz

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: Zardoz
Date: 1974

Vitals: A casualty of LSD-influenced cinema, Zardoz is the premiere trippy, campy SF flick everybody loves to mock. Some sort of time-travel/alternate universe thingie happens to Sean Connery, who wears a mini-skirt/speedo while trying to figure out why a bunch of white kids are doing drugs apathetically while heading toward a vaguely apocalyptic class war. Whoa, man, pass me a tab of blue sunshine.


Famous names: Sean Connery

Crunchy goodness: 3

Sight you'll never unsee: Sean Connery's chest hair.

Deadliest spoiler: It's Wizard of Oz - get it? Heavy, man.

Life lesson: The penis is evil. No, really. Zardoz "your God" says so!
