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.

In theaters this week, The Rhythm Section rocks with Blake Lively in righteous 007 mode, and Gretel and Hansel enhances the fable favorite with high-tech horror.

Streaming-wise, The Masked Singer returns for another dose of dumb, smokable fun; The Good Place ends its uproariously enlightening run; Miracle Workers: Dark Ages finds new stoner-ready work for leads Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi; and the suspense series The Stranger scorches Netflix.

The ganja-ready gorehound classic Body Part leads our vintage cult flick picks, followed by the apocalyptic insanity of The Astrologer, Burt Reynolds’ bacchanalian football farce Semi-Tough, and the enjoyably skin-crawling yuckiness of Slugs.

On the music front, Lil Wayne lights up the weekend with Funeral, Key Glock keeps it sticky with Yellow Tape, and Supersuckers take their own hard-toking advice with Play That Rock-‘n’-Roll.

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