How to force all GNOME applications to use the dark Adwaita theme?

I noticed in Fedora 16 that two applications (Image Viewer and Movie Player) are using the dark Adwaita theme while all other applications are using the bright Adwaita theme. For me, the dark theme just looks fantastic and I would like to change the theme for all applications only using the dark theme.

So my simple question is: Is there an easy way (without studying six semesters computer sciences) to force 'ALL' GNOME applications using the beautiful dark Adwaita theme?

Thank you in advance for your kind help.
