Welcome to the Monday Movie Blog on Chief 187 Chatter. There are many times I plan to see a movie in the theaters and find, when I’m ready to commit to a sitter, the movie is long gone. Some movies just don’t have the staying powers to cut it commercially against a perceived stronger popular flick. Real estate on the big screen in a theater is highly sought so there just isn’t a lot of time for a movie to prove itself and stick around for one to make long-term plans to catch it. My suggestion is to keep a journal, piece of paper, or back of an envelope handy to write down the names of all the movies you wanted to see but were unable due to crazy schedules, dependent children, or the like. By having the list, whenever the opportunity presents itself, you’ll always know you have a movie to rent or get from Netflix that is one you really wanted to see! In addition, when the Monday Movie Blog comes out weekly, you can cross reference your list with the lists created by the Chief 187 Chatter readers.
This week’s focus is movies set in Chicago. List your favorite movies that have been set in the fantastic area known as Chicagoland. Be sure to include the stars of the film and a brief review or synopsis.

Due to Hurricane Irene I have had no internet connection for days. I am posting both the Monday Movie Blog and Simple Joys today, Tuesday, August 30, 2011, in hopes that you will find time to read and perhaps comment on both. Thank you for your patience and support! ~Chief 187
