disappointing "things to do in denver when you're dead" is not in this list... the whole damn movie takes place IN denver and is About denver and is just a great movie

Not that interesting- and Armageddon was not made in 1988. A decade off there. Be nice if you had someone editing your article that was capable.

They need a spell checker, seriously. Also, it says Armageddon came out in 88. Yeah right.

That was lame. And I'm positive Armageddon didn't come out in 1988.

Annoying references to Denver, Longmire. They talk about the city like it's still the wild west.

One of the cameramen that was filming Armageddon wound up buying the gothic theater on Broadway and then just recently sold it to a AEG entertainment about a year ago
