Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

Lighting up big screens this week, the World War I adventure 1917 bombards the senses, Like a Boss goes hard for Tiffany-Haddish-sized laughs, and Underwater submerges Kristen Stewart in oceanic shocks.

Streaming highlights to get high to include RuPaul ruling in AJ and The Queen, the Yakuza crime slammer Giri/Haji, and the new Stephen King mini-series The Outsider.

Among our bodaciously bud-worthy bounty of vintage cult flicks are the mega-buzzing The Fly Collection, the Richard Pryor/Harvey Keitel stunner Blue Collar, the gothic chiller Flowers in the Attic, and the most delirious kiddie movie ever made, The Peanut Butter Solution.

Marijuna-ready music-wise, check out new releases from the Adobe Collective, Ether Coven, and Uncle Murda.

So, let’s get straight — but not “straight” — to this week’s recommendations.
