Someone still in here reading this thread???
Well, first things first, after the relatives have left I had a chance to finally catch up with this thread and read about all the exiting letter hauls!
Congrats to you three!
Looks like all reported letters yielded truly amazing hauls this time, to contrast a more or less generic general hauls!
Congrats fraxcat - enjoy your big screen TV and a box of DVD players!
Congrats dilettaunt on your slightly smaller, yet still a great to have TV and your bunch of DVD players
Congrats dseisler on your big load of amazing things!
Now to the question I've been asked a few days earlier:

So tonight was our movie night. Turns out I didn't even have to make a trip to BlockBuster, as I was able to simply order it from my cable VOD library for $5.99 in HD quality (something I would not have been able to do with BlockBuster, due to lack of BluRay equipment at home).
In a few words my impressions are:
The movie in general - not my type. I'd give it a two star out of 5. It carries a good message about our values, how they can change and how important a role the faith takes in our lives, even if we don't realize it now - but it's delivered too slowly and too brutally. A few bloody scenes here and there were enough for my wife to declare it "disgusting". But I was watching more than the movie, I was watching My bag in action!
The said bag did not make its first appearance until about an hour into the two-hour movie, and Mila Kunis didn't show up until just a short time before that. I did spot it in a few scenes bouncing up and down behind her back, apparently empty or very lightly loaded. No explicit "bag action" was noted, such as things being put in or taken out of it. Not even in the scene where she is getting robbed.
So that kind of explains the $50 minimum bid it went for! But none the less - the bag was there in the movie, I didn't keep count, but I'd say in at least 5-6 occasions it was very clearly seen - albeit none were closeups or scenes dedicated to it. And most importantly - I have finally seen it "live", so that my April Crаp experience is now complete!
I guess that I can proclaim that 4/28 BоC was one packed with the longest term of anticipation and speculation of them all for me!
Once again, thank you WOOT for the excitement and the fun this BоC game is!
