12:42 pm
>> welcome back to abc columbia news at 12:30. about 12:45 now on this monday afternoon. and it was very cold this morning. kind of a brutal time to get out especially at the morning after the super bowl. but we are seeing an improvement in the forecast. albeit it's probably going to be short lived. we look down at the vista from the rooftop of main and gervais. the traffic picking up. everybody going to lunch right now and not a bad time to do it. right now, 57 degrees. mostly sunny skies. getting a little breezy. so maybe don't eat on the patio. it will be nice to kind of be walking around. temperatures in the mid to upper 50's at the moment. saludadaehind there at 51. 57 downtown. warm up a few more degrees probably close to 60. may not see everybody get to 60. i don't expect that. but based on where we're at right now with winds out of the south and the sky cover that we're seeing, i think we have a few more degrees to eke out for most areas today. satellite and radar, as i mentioned, quiet at the moment but cloud cover is trying to filter in slowly.
12:43 pm
filter in as well as you look back towards north and west. more of a westerly component with that wind picking up and pulling that rain a little closer to home. so keeping our eye on that through the afternoon. rain chances are likely to pick up for us. but as of right now, no sign of a frontal passage. winds still out of the south. and southwest. once the front does pass out of the west and northwest. that's the big indicator, obviously, cloud cover not really here yet. winds still in place for us. so we're still in the warm sector of this cold front that's moving through in parts of south carolina starting to see some better rain towards charlotte and those areas there. still some snow as you get towards the north carolina mountains smokey mountains from north carolina and tennessee. for us, this little extension of rain is kind of going to swing through the area and bring a quick system of rain, not expecting a lot from it. i'll be surprised if anybody sees more than 1/4 inch of rain. more likely, be surprised if anybody sees a 10th of an inch of rain locally.
12:44 pm
about this is the cold air. it's bringing cold air. we'll see that really kind of filter in over the next couple of days and bring in a much cooler forecast as we head later into the week. so we're looking at rain moving through very briefly today. not really a big issue for us, i don't think, by any means. i think it's more of a coastal system at that. and then the snow stays well back to the west thankfully for us. so we'll be in the upper 50's or so today. 47 as we hit tomorrow so much cooler for us. stay in the 40's for much of the remainder of the week. will be a lot of sunshine. we'll need every bit of it. temperatures wililbe much colder for us especially as we head towawas the end of the week. >> brrr. great time to take in a movie, i think. >> i know. i know. inside would be the best place to be. >> right. a look at tinseltown in the 1950s and a filmmaker's tough

12:46 pm
in second at the box office. so let's delve into that ever crazy world of the cohen brothers with their newest film "hail, caesar!." our movie begins in mid 20th century hollywood. eddie maddux is the head of physical production for capital pictures and more important, the studios "fixer." his main job involves saving face for the studio and its movie stars by eliminating any possible controversies. we see him working from predawn until long after dark just trying to keep all of his plates spinning. the studio's big upcoming movie release will be "hail, caesar!" starring the huge star bear witlock played by george clooney. one day during filming, he is abducted in between shoots. upon finding out one of his stars is missing, he believes he's on a bender only to receive a note for a ransom. he finds himself neck deep inn problems. along with having to come up with the cash, he finds himself dealing with a director trying to direct a film using an actor way out of his almost.
12:47 pm
is a huge hit in one genre but being forced to switch to another and having to protect the image of a pregnant starlet that can't have her name tainted. he has to create stories and making false promises. as the movie progresses, we see all the disjointedness of a cohen brothers film begin to show through. as we witness maddux's attempted juggling act, we begin to realize how much times have changed. suddenly, we're inundated with communism, same sex relations and other extremely taboo subjects from that point in time. we find ourselves wondering how this is going to play out and being that it is a cohen brothers movie, we know anything could possibly happen. plus maddux suddenly receives a lucrative offer from an airline company so washing the hands of the entire mess is entirely an option. what to say about this movie. after seeing it, i knew that this was going to be a very hard review to write. i knew going in that the movie was going to be wacky and discombobulated but i really had
12:48 pm
be to summarize. i was excited about seeing it because i'm a fan of most of their movies. but i have to be honest, this one let me down just a little. a little less fargo and a little more "burn after reading." there are parts in it that just drag and i know it's supposed to be a comedy but i found that the laughs were too few and way too much time in between. it's almost like the cohen brothers grabbed a bunch of their friends and people they've worked with before and said hey, you guys are funny. you guys are amazing actors. do your thing. unfortunately, it just didn't come together how i hoped. although it does make you a little angry at channing tatum because that man can do anything and he does it well. you might want to check it out once it comes out on home video or hbo or whatever. i wish that was the route i would have taken. because then at least i could have seen "pride & prejudice and zombies" that, if nothing else, would have been mind numbing entertainment.
12:49 pm
i'm not running to the theater for that one quickly. >> it definitely has a star studded cast. >> that's true. >> that's for sure.
12:50 pm
seven day outlook coming up. >> enjoy the sunshine and the warm air while you can. we have some quick moving rain and some cooler air coming our way this afternoon. after that, very cold rest of the week. >> you've been watching abc columbia news at 12:30. thanks for making us your choice for news.
