Monday Movie Blog

Happy 2011! With the new year I'm launching several new ideas. The first I am implementing today and it is the Monday Movie Blog. The Friday Music Blogs are huge hits so I wanted to extend the idea to cap the weekend with a movie blog. Last year when I posted a movie topic we had record responses so I know movies are important to a lot of you.
To keep the topics fresh I am guaranteeing no repeats for the next six months of Mondays. We are starting today with movies that begin with the letter "A". This includes the articles "a" and "an" but is not limited to those titles. Any movie that begins with an "a" word is allowed. The purpose of the blog is to inform people of your favorite movies. It's intent is not to have you create a long list of movies you have never watched simply because the name fits the category; just list the movies you've seen and enjoyed that fit the focus. If time permits, post a blurb about who is in the movie and why you liked it so much. My husband and I are always looking for movies we haven't seen when searching Netflix, but don't want to waste our time with duds. Compiling these lists week after week will help us all seek out movies we'd like to add to our "queue" while giving us a forum to rave about our personal favorites. Won't you leave your selections today and each week?
I'm absolutely thrilled to continue "Chief 187 Chatter" in 2011 and am dedicated to making this new year one of great health (mental and physical), intensity, honesty, introspection, and a ton of FUN!
Let me know how you think I am doing, if you like the new blog ideas (i.e. today's Monday Movie Blog), and anything else on your mind. I've always wanted my blog to be an interactive one. Please feel free to leave your comments!
Now, get on with leaving your favorite movies that begin with the letter "A"!


  1. This is hard for me to think by letter, but here goes. How about A Love Story. I think you would like this one.
    Dad J2Allard

  2. A Muppet Christmas Carol

    An Affair to Remember- Cary Grant & Deborah Kerr (i wanted to walk down the aisle to the theme song & have pink champagne served at my reception- neither were allowed) This is one of my top movies of all time. Quoted in the movie Sleepless in Seattle.

    Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
    Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

    Aladdin- The movie picks up speed once the Genie appears thanks to the talents of Robin Williams

    Apollo 13

    Anchorman- You have to appreciate & enjoy the humor of Will Farrell to like this one.

    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
    Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery
    Austin Powers: Goldmember

    Amadeus- for the laugh alone!

    An American Werewolf in London- director john landis & i believe makeup artist rick baker.

  3. The Abyss
    American Beauty
    American Psycho

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head. :)

  4. I wouldn't call this movie a favorite of mine, but I rented it on Netflix a couple of months ago,
    Apocalypse Now. Very interesting...

  5. A Soldier's Story o- worth checking out!
    A Few Good Men - one of the few movies where Tom Cruise is not 'Tom Cruise' and Demi Moore isn't a sex object. Great story line, well acted, a lot of star power, and the coolest Jack Nicholson ever!

  6. African Queen... BOGART & K HEPBURN
    Adams Rib... TRACY & K HEPBURN
    All The President's Men.... REDFORD & HOFFMAN
    An Affair To Remember... I know it was mentioned but don't miss this one.
    The Apartment... JACK LEMMON & SHIRLEY MacLANE
    The American President... MICHAEL DOUGLAS & ANNETTE BENING
