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, Bad Boys For Life reunites Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for merry mayhem, Dolittle depicts Robert Downey Jr. talking to animals, and The Wave is the first killer drug flick of 2020.

On the stream scene, HBO ignites the tenth season of Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and debuts Avenue 5, a new space-set comedy from Veep creator Armando Iannucci; Leslie Jones does stand-up, and Sex Education returns on Netflix; and Apple+ premieres Little America, a new series from Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon.

This week’s vintage cult flick picks include Rian Johnson’s high-minded high-school thriller Brick, the Kevin Costner curiosity Waterworld, the Hammer horror fave To the Devil a Daughter; and the freaky Soviet fright film, Viy.

New marijuana-ready music comes our way this week from 070 Shake, Stunna 4 Vegas, and Holy Fuck.

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