watching Charlie’s Angels (2000) and the villain’s technological plot that they’re trying to stop is just...wow

I enjoyed it quite a lot back in the day and just watched it with 8-year-old daughter — we had a blast

Similarly, a bit in 007: Everything Or Nothing reveals that the villain uses capitalism to weaken the New Orleans levees so the city will flood and he can buy up poor people's homes under emergency federal powers. The game came out two years before Katrina made landfall.

Still freaks me out that six months before 9/11 happened, the pilot episode of The Lone Gunman TV series depicted a passenger jet being hijacked by remote control and flown toward the World Trade Center by a US gov't faction plotting to destabilize the world's political order.

And then there's the 1985 issue of X-Men in which Rachel Summers has a vision of "The twin towers of the World Trade Center lie in ruins. Thousands are dead, many more injured."

Wow, I used to buy the X-Men comics back then, so I looked it up and I think I remember the cover of that issue…

The 1992 movie Toys has a similar thing going on, except with drones.

The tv show Dark Angel had an entire subplot with armed drones.

I bet we could get Elon Musk to play himself as the villain in a remake
