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

I actually enjoyed Starship Troopers (Film).

First seems like a giant piss take, then you realise it is quite subversive.

As to Ready Player One. Book is quite good, I liked it, the the trailers to the film look nothing like I imagined from the book.

But then I am not a huge Spielberg fan, he can be good, but he can also get mawkish.

Best SciFi film I have seen in the last few years was The Martian. Just how much has it cost to rescue Matt Damon in all the films he has been rescued in?
