Well, sort of kind off. Like the Reeves version it's still not close enough to the comics, since in the comics Constantine was an A-grade douchebag who'd usually use anyone he could just so he'd get away scot-free. Here, they try to play him as the type who does want redemption and get into Heaven to clean away from his sins, while in the comic he hated both Angels and Demons, considering Heaven full of pompous wankers.
I just meant that he was more faithful than the movie, I think the comic book Constantine, especially the older one was probably a bit TOO edgy for NBC.
Yeah. Comic book fans should realize that Constantine is essentially unadaptable. If they make him true to character, there's no way he'll sell enough to be marketable, so the adaption will have almost no magic in it (because you can't afford the VFX). And if they put in magic and the other fun stuff into Constantine, then they're going to have to sand his rough edges down to get it to sell wider and make the money back.

I'm somewhat partial to the green tea with honey

Arizona Ice Tea green tea with honey is the best value in a canned drink in the western world.

They're $1 here in Canada too so we get them even cheaper when you factor in the exchange rate.

I haven't watched it but I'm led to understand there's a Preacher TV show. Preacher is basically the same thing as early Hellblazer, down to being written by Garth Ennis.

Plus you could just adapt American Gothic or do an actually faithful version of Dangerous Habits. Constantine is a jerk but he's not so far beyond the pale that he'd be out of place on TV in this day and age.

Dude, Robert, if you are racking in the cash, give some to your brother will ya, seems like he is in need.

Also, Robert always has to win! but I don't know if this the flex he means to do.

Even if we believe that he has triple his earnings (which I don't), then Robert is a absolute dumbass for working for so long for the Escapist for pennies, because even if he can spam more videos, a lot of them don't even break the 20k, and keeping the 100% of his ad revenue means shit if the ads on his page don't pay for crap.

The escapist channel has over a million subs, while Robert's has 135k, which of one you think has better paid ads? So whatever Robert is making on ads, it can't be much, because the views Robert get in a month, even channels on decline, like game grumps, can make it with a single video.

His patreon took a huge boost, and it does show that Robert has a loyal following, but it isn't the triple, not even double of what he was getting before.

So either Robert is flat out lying in the same breath he claims to have friends or he was working essentially for free for the Escapist, and even so, the Escapist didn't want to keep him around.

So, which one is more sad?
So if we take Robert at face value (and I'm not sure I would take Mr. I Bench 300 at face value for anything) that means those of us who were joking about him paying The Escapist to work there were actually right on. They were taking his ad revenue from the videos he made and paying him either nothing or next to nothing. And if his comment about his income tripling afterwards is anything close to accurate (doubtful), their cut was HUGE, at least as a percentage. Way more than his own cut. That would explain a lot about why they took so long to fire him despite him being a PR nightmare.
:lit:

Anyone care to look at his video output from last month to this month and see if he's actually producing three times the videos or getting three times the views?

This tough guy act falls apart when we all know he would return to The Escapist in a heartbeat if they offered it to him. This essentially happened with his first firing. Ten million different stories over the following years about how he was let go and how none of them were his fault, but the second he gets rehired he's screaming on Twitter about how he won and defeated the internet.

Jesus, is this what Bob actually believes? I mean, I liked Endgame (it had a couple of stupid moments but was a good finale to the MCU), but it's nowhere near the same level as works like Richard III or Macbeth.
Bob has said multiple times that comic books are the modern day version of things like Greek mythology and they will shape and influence us and the future the same way things like The Iliad did.

I mean I could be wrong but don't I think all that art was commissioned in the Sistine chapel so they could sell it to rubes and make a fortune then cookie cut a new one a couple of weeks down the line. Shakespeare and Greek mythology probably weren't some strategy to monopolise an industry.

Those sorts of things were generally commissioned by rich patrons for their enjoyment not because they wanted to churn out a product.

Someone tell Bob very little of modern day films/games/TV programmes are comparable to old art where the art/status was the aim not manufacturing a product for the masses. If anything the films of today are best compared to the circuses of Rome, designed to distract the masses with no real regard for how artistic the disemboweling of a few slaves would be.

Bob does know that the Sistine chapel was commissioned to create a beautiful rendition to honor god...right? It wasn't to prove ownership of anything, but to honor the god they worshiped and the fact that it has been protected and preserved to this day shows how much work, talent and genuine love went into it.

Infinity war is a good movie, but it will only last at most a decade in the public consciousness before it fades into obscurity. It was made to entertain, not to honor or show love for something greater.
 
I mean, we could go on for days and days about how retarded is to compare renaissance art and mass media seep, not to mention the difference between craft, public, intention etc.

But like with all the Robert hot takes, it has that juvenile stench of a kid that is regurgitating whatever he heard on his first semester on college

"heh, renaissaince art and super-hero culture are both supported by commissioned artists lending their skill to the oligarchic classes so they can steady the course of culture. it's all so very clear for those educated in media that we, unlike the unwashed masses, can see the very DNA that compose the human experience in this mud ball :smug:"

yeah, capital opinion there champ, never heard that one before.

This shit you tolerate with teenagers, just nod and smile and the little fuckes will go bother someone else, but as usual with Robert, it is pretty sad a man reaching his 40 talking like this.

It was only backward or uneducated people in the days of ancient Greece or Rome who superstitiously believed in the Pantheon gods and their fables.

The actual educated classes of the day and age (e.x. Aristotle, Plato, Socrates, Pythagoras, Plotinus, etc) rejected the myths of the popular gods for being immoral, stupid, superstitious (or just cheap, lowbrow entertainment for the hoi polloi at best).

They instead tended to believe in a universal, immaterial "God", Supreme Being, or universal cosmic order (which was linked to scientific or mathematical principles; as opposed to believing the universe was "random, chaotic" and merely dictated by the whims of the gods).

-

For that matter, in some ways, "theater" as an art forum (including TV and film), has always been considered the "butt monkey" or "fast food" version of the arts (along with other "mass" media such as pulp fiction, radio pop music, etc) - even "good" theater like Shakespeare - since at most, it's just meant to entertain people for a few hours, not anything which requires a greater vested amount of attention or study.

(e.x. The amount of time and effort one would have to invest to understand complex Jazz or Classical music theory, or advanced chess strategy is significantly more than the amount of attention required to sit through a 2-hour movie).

This is my favorite time, every four months or so, when someone brings up Bob and the Renaissance Art/Comic Book Movies stuff and we all get to shit on Bob again for being such a goddamned rube and a bumpkin and a simpleton euphoric all at the same time.
Being an "art" critic who only reviews TV and movies is like bragging about being a food critic who only reviews McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Wal-Mart brand pizza, etc

(At least Jack Scalfani attempts to make and review haute cuisine, even though most of what he makes is just cheap, fattening snack food; Bob isn't even on that level).
 
I highly recommend to anyone that gets the chance, visit the Sistine Chapel. You want to do two days to be honest because the works leading up the Chapel alone in themselves are some amazing master pieces.

One of the most amazing things about it is how high up it is. It drives home not just how massively difficult and time consuming, but also how dangerous it was. And you can learn of the history of how later Papal Authorities would censor the work and then it was later restored.

Through my job as an engineer, I have gotten to see many amazing things around the world and the Sistine Chapel is one of those places that took my breath away.

And this obese man child is comparing it to a movie poster.

What fascinates me about Bob is not Bon himself but his large number of twitter fans that not only swallow his drivel, but will go on an attack of anyone mocking him.

Who are these people and why?

No amount of "income" is going to fix Bob's "dried up potato face", nor will it erase that fact that his waifu epically humiliated him on Twitter.
I think someone should ask for "proof" on that one; just because he says so doesn't make it so, lmao.

(If it was true, why did he not quit the Escapist gig way earlier than he did and run his own gig, instead of waiting for it to fire him?)
