The Week's Best

THE WEEK'S BEST

December 04, 2003

DVD

X-2: X-Men United is an upgrade on its predecessor, already one of the more cohesive and intelligent of all the comic-book-to-screen mutations. Page 10

EATS

Even with a facelift, the Golden West is still the nonconformist teen-ager it always was, serving unlikely combinations to a mostly local crowd. Page 18

CD

Missy Elliott blends rap, soul, R&B and dance grooves on her new album, This Is Not a Test! which actually improves on her last work, the critically acclaimed Under Construction. Page 28

MUSIC

Jagged Edge continues to work its thug lover image in the new CD Hard. While the songs are neither subtle nor particularly inspiring, the guys' voices still make it work. Page 27

TRIPS

In New Market, the unofficial antiques capital of Maryland, visitors can find interesting treasures, tasty destination dining and tons of charm. Page 24
