Heady Entertainment: Hit the Clouds with Pop Smoke and "Birds of Prey"
This week, Pop Smoke drops some dopeness, "Birds of Prey" drops estrogen-fueled fire across Gotham City, and Elijah Wood gets extra-creepy in "Come to Daddy."
Published on February 7, 2020

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.

At the movies, Margot Robbie majorly blazes as DCU anti-hero Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey, while Elijah Wood torches the concept of family values in the twisted father-and-son horror pic, Come to Daddy.

Dope streaming options span multiple genres this week. McMillions is a jaw-dropping documentary about a long-con heist of the McDonald’s Monopoly Game; the headtrip flick Horse Girl stars Allison Brie as a down-home woman whose sanity appears to be going up in smoke; Locke and Key adapts a graphic novel favorite into the next scintillating supernatural series; and Mythic Quest: Raven’s Blanket is a total toker’s triumph co-created by and starring It’s Always Sunny’s Rob McElhenny as a videogame designer.

This week’s cult film collectibles include Lucio Fulci’s splatter masterwork The House by the Cemetery; the high-’80s ski farce Hot Dog: The Movie; the fantastically self-explanatory Zombie Island Massacre; and the 1966 camp classic The Oscar, complete with a new audio commentary by Patton Oswalt.

Music-wise, we spark up new releases from Shopping, Boldy James and The Alchemist, and the incandescently headline-grabbing Pop Smoke.

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