Nothing "weird" about it, really. Its a generational thing, as far as I'm concerned. See, I grew up with the Showa stuff, and always found the 90s stuff ('dark', 'brooding', ooooohhhhh...) rather lame, at the time. There are still a couple I need to see, post-70s.
In time, in time.
GvBio is alright, though I do find it a bit overrated in the fandom. I'm not into the dark/brooding stuff either, and yeah... I did find GvBio a bit boring at times and the final battle with Biollante was rather quick and anticlimatic.
