    Ha, good pick. Not the d**k we need but the d**k we deserve.

Its like the Spiderman (or Batman) reboot where they replace the goofy American actor with a brit, and dump the odd-ball director for a no-nonsense guy with a serious script. The Batman reboot (with Christian Bale, I might add) worked, while the Spiderman reboot (which came too soon after the previous set of movies), not so much.
