This weekend, Arizona plays with Dunnies, launches an SF book, and premiers two hit movies from Japan.

Looks like things are picking up again this weekend!

And hey, if you feel like voting for Lightning Octopus as the East Valley’s best blog, I won’t stop you. It’s a free country, after all.

EVANGELION: 2.0 YOU CAN (NOT) ADVANCE – Worldwide Premier [Pheonix]

  • I got into Evangelion when I was a teenager and I loved them.
  • I’ve heard the first few “movies” weren’t that great, but apparently this “2.0” one is supposed to be really good.
  • Showing at Valley Art Theater on Mill in Tempe.
  • The worldwide premier is at various times on Friday, then is playing for a week.

Let me know if you think you might hit one of these up – I’d love to hear if either of the films are any good – or if I missed anything!
