|05:40 pm - Fisticuffs Club - Friday Poll|
First take a look at this post (from nihilistic_kid) and the photo therein.
Then answer my questions three:
Sherlock Holmes would look like that
Contribution to canon
Not proper Sherlock, but worth seeing
Valid reinterpretation of the source material
ETA - I keep changing my answers
ETA a bit more - You know Doctor Watson is Jude Law?
I think the only Sherlock Holmes I have seen or read is Young Sherlock Holmes
and that doesn't even count, so I am unqualified to answer questions 1 and 3. I should probably rectify that, since there's a Now question 2 I can do.
(Also, that picture looks a bit like ninebelow
if he was twenty years older and had a six-pack.)
That should read "since there's an complete Sherlock Holmes collection on the bookshelves at home". I think I got distracted by something *cough*.
LOL, it reads like a sit com script. If it was acted out you would do a double take at 'Now question 2'.
About the yum, or about the resemblance to Martin?
Does this pic inspire you to work out like a devil?
His height is way out, bless him, unless Watson was being very
sarcastic in his descriptions. ;) I'm willing to wait and see how it turns out though. The leaked script was apparently very slashy. ;)

In that case - blimey - words fail me
Probably more in a Holmes-Watson-Mary angst way than 'and then he ripped off all five layers of his clothing' way. (Not that there's anything wrong with that -- painful marriage angst is a proud tradition of H/W ;))
The film will also feature Rachel McAdams in breeches. I'm heartily sick of Irene Adler and Moriarty insertions, but points for remembering the walking clothes at least.
On first reading of the post you linked to, I assumed that Jude's Law was a corollary of The First Rule of Fisticuffs Club.
The Marquess of Queensbury has a lot to answer for, and I believe Jude Law was his son
Oh, good, they're going to do something with his boxing. The boxing always gave me trouble as a kid because I had been told it led to brain damage, and I took such warnings very seriously, but Holmes didn't seem to have any in the stories. It wasn't until much later I learned one of the common symptoms of mild abi is disinhibition, which suddenly explained most of history to me, actually.
Oh, and, er, YUM. Though I'll be surprised if he can make me like him better than Jeremy Brett.
When I worked at the homeless shelter most of the men were ex-boxers with severe brain damage - many could not speak. I can't watch real life boxing now, but I like pretend fighting in films.
I just think there's no point in anyone trying to compete with Jeremy Brett, ever. They had to go, right or wrong, with a completely different approach.
