Gongey’s BlogDescribing the Indescribable World of The Gongey

All things Gongey

A Gongey is a special being. Having been created in the fiery furnaces of hell...wait...let me start over.
Back when collars were huge and pants were in the shape of bells I was born. The year was 1977. After 10 long months of gestation I was ready to join the world and make my contribution.
This blog is a record of my life. Good, bad and generally mundane!

Throughout my life I have watched a TON of movies. According to Netflix I have rated 1210! Averaging out each movie at 1.5 hours, I have spent a total 75 DAYS watching movies. I don’t even want to count the time I have spent gaming.
Anyway, back to topic. I believe movies have influenced my life, good and bad. So I have decided to make a Top 20 movies/shows that have influenced my life.


Top 20 List (in no particular order)

  1. Labyrinth
  2. The Goonies
  3. Mr. Mom
  4. Legend
  5. UHF
  6. Star Trek:
  7. MacGyver
  8. Quantum Leap
  9. Lord of the Rings Trilogy
  10. Enemy Mine
  11. Big Trouble in Little China
  12. E.T.
  13. Army of Darkness
  14. Harry Potter series
  15. Lost Boys
  16. Supernatural
  17. Princess Bride
  18. Space Above and Beyond
  19. Stargate:
  20. Willow

My list could probably run well into 100’s but for reader attention I kept is short.  I was going to write next to each one describing why it influenced me, but I didn’t want to type all night long!

What are some influential movies/shows in your life?  Briefly describe why they influenced you.  I really want to read what people have to say about this subject.

    That’s true, I did forget to mention Salem’s Lot. I think I blocked that portion of my life. That show scared the ever loving crap out of me!

    The Crow and many others are in my larger list of life altering movies. 😉

    Evil Dead is on my list. I just encompassed it by listing Army of Darkness.
