Palindromic movie reviews.

In two articles in 1995 issues of Word Ways Ross Eckler presented anagrammatic movie reviews. That is, they were movie reviews obtained by anagramming the movie's title. In that spirit I present here Palindromic Movie Reviews. There is, of course, a natural limitation to what can be said given the constraints of having the rifle actually appear reversed in the text, so these do not pretend to be "'actual discussions", as it were, of the movie, but simply opinions about the film, often intended to be spoken to a friend, for example. Comments are included for clarity when appropriate. Movie titles are in Bold.
