“Starship Troopers” has pretty much everything you want from a satirical science-fiction action flick. There’s the over-the-top action, with guns that hold seemingly infinite ammo. There’s the incredibly cheesy dialogue, with such gems as, “The only good bug is a dead bug!” And then there’s the awesome technology that the makers predicted we’d have in the future.
While much of it’s still in the realm of fantasy — like faster-than-light space travel — the movie also predicted many things that are already part of our everyday tech.
