Are meta, self-referential or recursive science-fiction films doomed?


What fuck is this "meta" shit? Do you just mean a film adaption? Is that not just called an adaptation?

The entire article just seems to mention the fact that sometimes books are made into films, some of those are sci-fi books/films and some of the are good while others are shit.

Not exactly keen insight.

Oh and I really hope they don't bother turning SevenEves into a film. That was the most interminable piece of shit I've had the misfortune to try and read. A pity as Stephenson used to be quite good before he disappeared up his own arse.
