(at around 2h 50 mins) When Jack Driscoll goes up in the Empire State Building elevator, he watches an old-fashioned dial-and-arrow indicator as it sweeps upward through the floor numbers, from "1" to "101". However, the building's structure does not allow for direct elevators from street level to the very top.

A change of elevator is necessary on or about the 86th floor for anyone going to the very top. Also, the top floor is officially "102", not "101".
At the end of the closing credits: "This film is dedicated with love and respect to the original adventurers of Skull Island: Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, Willis H. O'Brien, Max Steiner, Robert Armstrong and ... the incomparable Fay Wray. They continue to inspire all those who follow in their footsteps."
