You are sooo going to get a hug for for this. You and your friends are super awesome.
I would not consider Dr Who the big disappointment of his career. Granted, if he had made the character more like Van Helsing it would have been a better movie and could have spawned more than two movies. But look at it from his point of view. He was portraying a character that already existed on tv. He wanted his version to be similar, but different enough to be his own. And maybe he just wanted to do something completely different from his past roles to prove that he could do it.
