Win tickets to the opening weekend of The Hobbit in Denver!

Update: Congratulations to Nerdgasm and kmurtaugh08! You've each won two tickets to the film. Check your email for details on how to claim them

Original post: During the last decade, few movies have inspired as much box-office awe (and costumed panic) as Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy.
