That Moment When We All Realized Judge Dredd Was Not Going To Deliver

The Stallone Dredd is from that period in the '90s when every big budget genre movie was full of supposedly "self aware" camp humor and terrible CGI. The Schumacher Batman movies are the worst offenders, but there was also Demolition Man, Tank Girl, Alien Resurrection, The Avengers (with Fiennes and Thurman, natch), Godzilla, Lost in Space... Its reputation has been tarnished a bit by the sequels, but The Matrix still has a special place in my heart for stopping this trend cold.
