Heady Entertainment: Keep Smoking Grass for Neil deGrasse Tyson and "Bloodshot"
This week, Vin Diesel gets "Bloodshot" without smoking a single blunt, "Cosmos" returns with "Possible Worlds," and Glenn Danzig's "Verotika" arrives on Blu-ray.

Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, TV shows, 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.

Movie theaters will showcase wild, weed-ready action in the form of Vin Diesel’s superhero bash Bloodshot and the controversial political satire The Hunt. (That is, if movie theaters stay open amidst the coronavirus panic.)

Smoking up streaming screens, Anna Paquin returns in the savagely funny PR sitcom Flack, HBO’s Westworld reinvents its own science-fiction premise for maximum reefer impact in season three, and Neil deGrasse Tyson blows minds even more severely with science fact in Cosmos: Possible Worlds.

Our classic cult-flick picks kick off with Verotika, outlaw rocker Glenn Danzig’s instantly legendary horror anthology, the ’80s slasher favorite April Fool’s Day, scare maven Paul Naschy’s werewolf-karate mash-up The Broad Sword and the Beast, and the mind-popping art visions of The Maya Deren Collection.

So let's go straight — but not "straight" — to this week's fresh-rolled and smoldering recommendations.
