6:42 am
couple of weeks. >> such a jet setter. get to it then. first off, let's talk about safe house. densely washington, ryan reynolds, we just saw a pro moe for it. another cia movie here. >> reporter: i love densely in these awesome roles. you go back and look at man on fire, training day, he has such a great range. you look back over his whole career. and he is one of the best actors working today. the idea behind this fill system the young ago, working in a safe house. and densely's character is brought as a rogue agent. and reynolds have to protect densely and bring him back in. it's an interesting film in that it has visual music. the director did a great job of keeping the pace going with the
6:43 am
editing technique. the movie is extremely violent. one of the more violent. i was shocked at how many gun battles and fight see consequences there were. so people, parents, this is not a kid movie whatsoever. what do you give this one? >> reporter: three out of five. i think it's a well done film in the action department. i don't think the characters were interesting enough. and it was very, very predictable. but there's an actor in the film, one of the most underrated actors today. rent that movie if you have a chance. but it's a good matinee. on the weekend, don't spend the full ticket price. >> the vow, this one has a sad premise to it. it's maybe good around valentine's day. what did you think? >> reporter: you mention the tragic element. the movie comes off more like a sweet romantic film after the tragedy. the beginning of the interview
6:44 am
is that, she loses her memory after a terrible car accident. and he has to get her to refall in love with him again. so after being married for years, they have go to go on their first date again. could you imagine that. and it has like a notebook-type feel, but ends up going down a sweet romantic path. and i think he is really starting to come through as an actor. starting to show that emotional depth that i wanted to see. because he was a really bad actor in the step-up movies, but he is coming to now. she is one of the best actresseses working. i love watching her. i can fall in love with her characters no matter who she plays. >> what did you give senate. >> reporter: 3.5 out of 5. i found myself emotionally engaged in the film. it might have cheesy dialogue every once in a while, but i walked out, by the way, interesting fact, inspired by a
6:45 am
true story. the real people in real life are called crime and cricket. and it's a real couple. the wife did lose her memory. never regain it in real life, but got remarried and had two kids. >> that's a great story. makes me want to see it more now. >> reporter: yeah. >> very little time left. journey 2, you call this mindless fun. >> reporter: it's total mindless fun. if you look from a script standpoint, you get garbage. but a special effects stand point, the 3d is fun, a fun family adventure. the rock is such a character, makes it a fun movie. you enjoy yourself. the special effects are good. the 3d is fantastic. you don't really care about the characters or what you saw. but if you want to see me peck top with the rock, go to my website. he taught me the peck pop. >> i can't wait.
6:46 am
the peck pop. >> reporter: he taught me how. >> what did you give the movie. >> reporter: three out of five. good matinee for a family. stay home, rent the movie, not a kid movie. very adult film, but very good. >> so good to see you. even though it has to be from skype. we can't wait to see your interviews. and i'm going to talk to him today. i promise. >> we'll pass it along for her. >> that's great. >> taking requests for people here at fox 5, i got a list. i got a list. >> they have to have a movie coming out. >> okay. >> but you know,. >> i still got a list. all right. what's going on? >> it's coal. temperatures in 20s, low 30s. a chilly start, bay mild
6:47 am
afternoon. and then things get, well, get interesting later tonight. and we get a storm that will be developing off the coast. any comments? >> nope. i'm ready. bring it on. >> 39 in washington. i know you are. off to the north and west, lots of 20s. 27 in fredrick. and warmer closer to the bay, starting with 37 degrees. all right, clear skies for your sunrise. and then clouds start to move in quickly by early afternoon. mostly cloudy as we've got a lot of moisture off to the south and west. look at that time rain falling across the southern tier of the country. this is going to get its act together and develop low pressure. and then going to slide up the coast. low pressure going the slide up the coast and away from the washington area. at the same time, a cold front off to the north and west that's going to try to get in
6:48 am
here. and how they team up will determine exactly what kind of precipitation get. right now, we're thinking this is mostly a rain event. and as the colder air gets in tonight and tomorrow, it will change to a mix particularly north and west of the city. best chance of the mix will be north west as we get into the overnight hours and during the day tomorrow. tomorrow looks like a cloudy day, with pers of mixed winter weather. a little snow. and switching over to rain. and then back and for you during the day. and then the bottom drops out by late saturday and early sunday as temperatures are expected to only be about freezing for your daytime high on sunday. other today. early sun, afternoon clouds, mile temperatures expected. wins north here at about 5 to 10 miles per hour. rain likely tonight. changing to snow overnight. best chance will be north and west of the city. could be light accumulations toward morning. maybe an inch north and west of the city. 34degrees here. so this will not be a major winter storm for us. it will be a major storm on the
6:49 am
eastern seaboard towards new york. boston, providence, they could get maybe 6 to 10 inches of snow. so i think we will be impressive. and we haven't done a lot of winter weather this year. hardly any i would say. >> the forecast could change just a little bit. so stay tuned later today. >> thank you. time for ask the weather guy. >> woo other. >> that's where we put our large heads together, weather related or other wise. today's question, a great question, i love this question. he writes, all right so, today i thought i saw two levels of clouds moving in two different directions. is that a possibility? or just an illusion? >> i don't think i have noticed that. >> you guys ever look to the sky. >> yeah, but i don't see them moving in different directions. yeah, the clouds, but not that deep. >> i encourage everybody later today and tonight and tomorrow
6:50 am
to get out and look at that time clouds because they actually travel in different directions. >> really? >> maybe we can go to the video. we're going to show you video of it occurring. as you go up in altitude, the clouds, there you go, the clouds are being pushed by wind coming at different directions. imagine if sort of rivers of air. different rivers of, a different altitudes. so the clouds absolutely depending on how high up will move in different directions. today a cold front from the north and west. so some moving in from the north and west. and then some off to the south and west, some coming in from the south this afternoon. and it's fascinating to watch if you go out in a grassy field, you can see the clouds moving in different directions. sometimes, depending on the air mass, clouds will all move in the same direction. not all the tile.
6:51 am
but particularly when you start to get disturbances and see stormy weather, you can see them moving in different directions. >> we could see that today maybe or tomorrow? >> certainly tomorrow. and i think late they are afternoon, probably get a taste of it. want to mention to you, tim, that this often occurs in the spring months and talking about severe weather. and one of the markers we looked for in the weather world for the possibility of tornadic activity is wind sheer. and that's when the wins are changing directions at different hughes. winds coming out of the west at 80 miles per hour and then wins out of the south at 60 miles per hour. and it's those wins coming together that start to create a spin in the atmosphere and creatorred inic conditions. so absolutely positively not your imagination there. happens all the time. >> but you can go out today. >> yeah. >> nice enough, well put your coat on. and look up.
6:52 am
