Eine Sammlung von Filmzitaten

Gerade in Zeiten wie diesen, vermisse ich ins Kinogehen ganz besonders. Auch wenn bei uns das Autokino in Kornwestheim weiterhin geöffnet ist, so ist dies für mich kein richtiger Ersatz, da ich eher die älteren Filme mag und mich zudem die üblichen Kassenschlager eher weniger ins Kino locken. Und das neue Popup Autokino auf der Theresienwiese in Heilbronn käme für mich auch eher wegen meiner beständigen Neugierde in Frage.

Das Filmschauen zuhause ist zwar sehr bequem und hat auch den unschlagbaren Vorteil, dass man sein Programm selber zusammenstellen kann, aber es ist immer noch kein richtiger Ersatz für eine Kinoleinwand und den eingebauten Sound-Systemen.

Zumindest für mich, dem jegliches Verständnis dafür fehlt, dass man zum Beispiel alle Star Wars Filme oder Blade Runner auf einem Mobiltelefon schauen kann, gehört es immer noch dazu, dass man einen guten Film zumindest einmal auf einer großen Leinwand gesehen haben muss.

Erschwerend kommt für mich noch hinzu, dass es Filme gibt, die man eigentlich nur im Kino und dies am besten mit weiteren netten Menschen so richtig genießen kann; seit mich ein Freund in den 1980er Jahren in eine Vorstellung der Rocky Horror Picture Show in München schleppte, bin ich fest davon überzeugt.

So vermisse ich gerade ganz besonders das Heilbronner Arthaus Kino und freue mich schon jetzt auf zukünftige Kino-Highlights.

Bis dahin stelle ich hier einmal ein paar Filmzitate online, die mir beim Filme schauen im Gedächtnis hängen geblieben sind. Auch habe ich ein paar Zitate aus bekannten Fernsehserien mit hineingeschmuggelt.
