There's no shortage of 'must watch' science fiction movie lists on the internet, and even more debate about what films should be included.

"So as you may know, Cthulhu joined our team a few months ago to pose for our official laurels. At the time, some idiot (me), thought it might be fun to make him/her/it a programmer as well. Well, since then, I’ve been trying to get ahold of him to watch his films. He resurfaced from the bottom of the ocean a few days ago and I met him for lunch on 6th street."
