No expectations. Thought Godzilla 2014 was mediocre at best, and Kong: Skull Island was garbage. The hope is there, but I'm so very ready to be disappointed by this. Unless I get dragged out to the theater, I'll probably wait for streaming.
As a long time Toho fan I can't see how I'll be disappointed. But I feel you on G14 and how you could see that was medicore. Imo they played too much of the hide and seek game and it drug on a little too long, especially the cut away scenes. That annoyed me quite a lot. But yeah for G19 if you don't want to go the theaters, streaming is always the next best thing, hopefully you enjoy this one.
If by hide and seek, and cut away scenes, you're referring to the way a Godzilla sequence would be beginning, and the movie would cut away to somebody picking blueberries or whatever, then I couldn't agree more. When what was essentially the start of the final battle was kicking off, and they AGAIN decided to cut away from the Godzilla action by having what's-her-face close the shelter door behind her, I busted out laughing.
