I would like to talk you about about how there is no Jesus

Over the top religious types can get on my nerves, including atheists. Yes I meant to imply that atheists are a religious type.

I really don't care what your personal beliefs are. If they bring happiness and a sense of purpose to you, great. But there is no need to rub them in my face. Now the above example is really not that big of a deal for me. It's not like the owner of the car is knocking on my door to talk to me about how there is no Jesus. Or asking me to sign a petition to have some religious symbol removed from public view because they find it offensive to their beliefs.

But it really is amusing that someone would spend the time and money for vanity plates to show all drivers around them that they don't believe in God. And that they are bad at spelling.

Another King Kong Movie, Another Example of Why Hollywood is Dead

Hollywood is pretty much dead. They ran out of ideas. They're out of touch with their audience.

Now days the majority of movies coming out of Hollywood are remakes, reboots or comic book movies. This year we've seen a host of comic book movies, reboots of Mad Max, Ghostbusters, the Magnificent Seven, just to name a few.

If they put out something with moderate success, then it's sequels until they run out of ideas for a story line (or books to base the movies from). Then the throw in a prequel or two just to see if they can squeeze one more film out of it.

Now I've seen the trailer for a new King Kong movie..... Really? And there is a new King Kong vs. Godzilla already in the works. Sad, so sad.

From what I picked up from the one trailer I saw, is it appears the movie is set during the Vietnam War era. I'm guessing that since there were UH-1 helicopter carrying soldiers wearing olive drab US Army uniforms and carrying M-16A1 rifles. But that's just my guess. Who knows, maybe they are modern private contractors with a flare for retro gear.

I guess the time frame isn't important. What's important is that Hollywood so lacks any creativity they have to rehash a movie idea that was originally done in the 1930's and has been redone over and over again already.

I'm sure they'll mix it up by adding some political undertones that no one wants.
