Monday Movie Blog

Welcome back to a brand new week and a new half-year at Chief 187 Chatter! As I announced on Friday, on Sunday, March 13, 2011 this site turned six months old. It is a labor of love and a work in progress. It is a living, breathing document that evolves as I do. As readers and responders, you are as much a part of its success as I am. So, I thank you for your contributions and look ahead as we embark on more topics, ideas, resources, and fun.

As it is Monday we are in the Monday Movie Blog. Since January the Monday Movie Blog has been focused on creating an alphabetical resource of movie titles. Each Monday a new letter is introduced and all responses are welcomed. The movie title that fits the letter, a list of actors in the film, and a brief synopsis or reason you liked the movie is appreciated.

Today’s topic is movies that begin with the letter “J”.

Thank you for joining me. I hope you return tomorrow for what is the most uplifting part of the week, Tuesday’s Simple Joys blog. 


  1. Julie & Julia- Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci and Amy Adams. Based on a true story. Streep plays, brilliantly of course, Julie Child. Amy Adams plays Julie. She decides to go through every recipe in Julia Child's The Joy of Cooking in one year and blog about it. Sweet movie. I just watched it AGAIN late last week. I would probably see it several more times. Sweet movie. Tissues may be needed at the end if you are a Sappy McSappyPants like I am.

    Jumanji- Robin Williams. A board game comes to life in this movie. My kids love this movie and always stop to watch it (sometimes deliberately searching for it in the DVR) when it is on.

    Juno- Ellen Page, Jennifer Gardner, Jason Bateman. 16-year-old who finds herself pregnant after a single encounter. Considers an abortion, Juno decides to give the baby up for adoption. She finds a well off couple to adopt. Charming movie.

  2. Just the bear necessities for me every time - J is for Jungle Book !
