Off The Record...
Marilyn Manson

Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death)
Manson returns to the well once more on Holy Wood, a concept album of sorts that he claims completes the trilogy started with his other two discs and which he hopes to turn into a novel sometime next year and a movie sometime after that. Clocking in at 19 songs, Manson has been speaking of it of late as if it were his own personal White Album. There are some musically powerful moments on the album, notably the eviscerating power chords on The Fight Song and the galloping rhythms of Disposable Teens. So has the new century brought us a kinder, gentler Marilyn Manson? Not by a long shot. Just a more savvy one, whose theater of horrors is still open for business, and business is good.

 

On Video...
Gladiator
The glory and horror of Rome is depicted in this spectacular epic about a Roman general (Russell Crowe) at the peak of his conquering powers.  The opening scene of warfare has to be one of the most spectacular and gory ever-put on screen. Betrayed by the nasty son of the dying Emperor and ordered executed. Escaping death, he falls into the hands of a slaver, becomes a gladiator, and eventually makes his way back to Rome, where he becomes a hero of the Coliseum to face off against the new Emperor.

At The movies...
The 6th Day
Set in the near future, the movie shows us a world where pets can be cloned and virtual girlfriends can give you a satisfying Saturday night. This new world isn't totally without limits. Human cloning is against the law. People aren't supposed to make people. When Arnold Schwarzeneggerís character, an ordinary family man, returns home one evening, he discovers that he's been replaced. This leads to intrigue, action and everything you'd expect from a Schwarzenegger  movie. Expect everything from its PG-13 rating with strong action violence, brief strong language and some sensuality.  Donít expect Arnold to move away from his proven forte.

The Buzz...
