->"[...] Kong has always been held as this high standard. Like, you know, [[Film/KingKong1933 the original]] was this groundbreaking masterpiece, and with [[Film/KingKong1976 the '76 remake]] and [[Film/KingKong2005 the 2005 remake]], even if you didn't like those, you can tell they treated it like it was important. It was this thing they had to get right, this high-class work of art. But this one ''doesn't'' take itself seriously. This one comes right out and says, "hey, let's have fun with it this time"."
