Seven Great Sci-Fi Movies That Are About To Vanish From Netflix

By David Wharton | 6 years ago

Spaceballs is arguably Mel Brooks last great comedy flick (at least so far). Sure, Men in Tights had its moments, but Life Stinks and Dracula: Dead and Loving It are better left forgotten. With Spaceballs, Brooks applies his genius for parody to science fiction as a whole and Star Wars in particular, spinning the tale of Lord Dark Helmet’s (Rick Moranis) evil scheme to steal all the air from the planet Druidia. Thankfully the roguish Lone Star (Bill Pullman) is on the case to save the day and get the girl (Princess Vespa, played by Daphne Zuniga), assuming he can get some face time with her away from her chaperon droid (Joan Rivers). Spaceballs is one of those flicks that’s chockablock with lines and scenes we’ve all been quoting and recreating for nearly 30 years. Just remember, if anybody asks, you totally did not see Lord Dark Helmet playing with his dolls again.
