RE: 'Kong: Skull Island': 'B' movie?

Is Samuel Jackson a 'B' list actor?
Brie Larson
Tom Hiddleston
John c. Reilly
John Goodman
These too? I suspect that a case could be made to that effect. Regardless of which blockbuster comic book movie they may have had major and minor roles in.

If this 'Kong movie' is a 'B' class film, perhaps every Kong movie that has preceeded it might also be considered similarly. Now that I think of it, I consider the original film "King Kong"- 1933 to be a 'B' film.

Thanks for the comments which are not far from what I would have expected. I presume you don't have in this film the same corny ending where the giant ape falls from a deadly height, dies, and then some human stands over the ape's corpse while stating " It was beauty that killed the beast".

I guess it seems reasonable that any 'Kong' movie wouldn't be correct without significant amounts of cheese within. Even the 2005 Peter Jackson remake was cheesy. But that one had good cgi...and lots of it. And it had a notable performance by Naomi Watts as she interacted with that big ape that kidnapped her while on the island.

Thanks for going where I might not. I'll see it on a small screen when it becomes available....and at lower cost.
