In the intro credits there is a sketch of a turtle with the words 'MUTO - Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism' written beside it. This could be a reference to the Gamera movies which involve a giant turtle attacking Japan, or the two giant turtles from Toho movies, the skeleton remains of one in Godzilla vs Mothra (1964) and Kamoebas from Space Amoeba (1970).

Kong: Skull Island is the perfect monster movie. It's an epic display of what a popcorn movie should be. Great visuals, soundtrack, and a pleasant plot that is not bogged down by the melodrama that killed the Godzilla flick from 2014. It's a giant monster movie. Have fun.
