"Comics and sci-fi are the new archetypes of our culture; we relate to Star Wars and Stan Lee's characters, and we've created new mythologies through them," says Dan Landes, restaurateur and self-confessed sci-fi geek. And on May 4, Landes's City, O' City hosted a full-on orgy of nerdness with the May the Fourth Be With You sci-fi costume party.
But one commenter wasn't thrilled with the results, as shown in our May the Fourth Be With You slide show.
Um, have ANY of these people seen any of the Star Wars movies? Those "costumes" were a disgrace! And when did that D-bag think it was a good idea to wear a Star Trek getup to a Star Wars party?! Ugh! Stop glorifying these horrible tweaked out drunks and start covering some important, relevant Denver news!
How about this for important news? May 4 is over -- for this year, at least -- but thanks to Landes, the force will be with you all year-round via this list of his top five sci-fi films .
