This weekend, Phoenix di-digs up dinosaurs, cosplays, and parties with local authors, Batman, and RoboCop.

You’ve tried so hard to forget that Roland Emmerich made a Godzilla movie in the 90s, but now you must face it, and gain power over it through laughter. Follow the link above for theaters and tickets.

The anime convention is showing up to host a mini-convention, so feel free to dress up and prepare for anime/video game Jeopardy! and more. Starts at 6pm at Bookmans Phoenix. Yatta!
This sleeper sci-fi hit is playing all weekend, if you prefer to enjoy your cold distopias with friends and spirits. Starts at 7:15pm.
Thought I’d mention that this documentary about paleontologists fighting for their T-Rex is playing at Shea 14, since I haven’t seen too much publicity for it, myself. Insert clever Jurassic Park reference here.
And because there is no such thing as too many dinosaurs, FilmBar is playing some dino-centric crazy Japanese shows at midnight.

Our local pool of genre-writing talent is not small, and here’s a chance to get to know a few at The Phoenix Center for The Arts. It’s free! Starts at 10am and goes until 3:30pm.
This is a family oriented event for a good cause. Help benefit Children First Academy, a school for homeless and impoverished children and their families, while enjoying Batman cosplay and everything else. From 11am to 4pm at Samurai Comics. It’s what Batman would want you to do.
First you should serve the public trust, then protect the innocent, then uphold the law, THEN go see RoboCop at 9:30pm at the Tempe Pollack Theater with other fans.
Have a great weekend, you crazy kids!
