Atomic energy time and that we should point out it is Friday at thirteenth and there is one scary movie that is opening this weekend in the former by van man but they're also. Plenty of other choices out there that are opening this weekend. I saw the trailer for by that man it is raining no thank you yeah. I think that this morning we do start with an offering from master director Martin Scorsese silence at this film it tells the tale of two Christian missionaries. In 1643 in search of their missing mentor in the dark heart of Japan where Christians were being boiled alive and elated and crucified. It seems. To me that our mission here is more urgent than ever we must go find out forever. This is enormous in both of you. And I must trust columnist for the the moment it's a foot in that country. You step into the future. Looks like a powerful film silence is scoring high marks with rotten tomatoes with 84% certified fresh score but while the critics seem to love that many are put off by slow pace. Appeared to bridge right. Though undeniably gorgeous silence is punishing only long frequently boring. And woefully on engaging at some of its most critical moment so not a favorable review the air but Rene Rodriguez says that here is a movie. About the importance of religion that will move you regardless of whichever god you worship. We're counts around to each his own. Yeah and it sounds like a feel good movie doesn't it.

We'll kill a lot of people talked with the talking about the wrong people. Who leased the foes of our guys sit back and listen trust me. Yes that let molesting workforce and talent. Eyes it. Boston but I can't just snap my fingers this decision goes all the way up to the attorney gen we is not call right now isn't. Steady work. The dip direction. Citizens on the streets you'll despite an 8% certified fresh rating around made as pickers say is catching a lot of flak from critics who point out that roberts' character. Never actually existed. Allen talking rights composite character can work but it felt manipulated and distracted and David Sims adds the film is. Most fascinating when it faithfully conveys the confusion of the days after the bombing and a pileup of differing opinions and clashing egos. Different sources there no matter what yes some maybe by that men will be the ticket. Further we get maybe it well I don't know I'm not going that is that is for this half hour.
