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.

Smoking up theaters this week, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged pits four waterlogged teens against literal sharks in 3D (paranoia time), while Good Boys tosses three wholesome preteens into the figuratively shark-infested waters of adolescent scoring in every sense (party time!).

Streaming choices veer from the hilarity of the standup series Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready and the latest Danny McBride madness The Righteous Gemstones, to the harrowing heaviness of the horror anthology The Terror: Infamy and the return of the serial-killer drama Mindhunter.

The new vintage cult flicks include a three-disc collector’s edition of Jimmy Cliff’s all-time reggae-and-reefer masterwork The Harder They Come (1972) and the face-melting, Dario Argento-produced gore storm, Wax Mask (1997).

Hallucinogenic hip-hop dominates what’s dope in music, with blazing new dispatches from Curren$y, Nef the Pharaoh, and the Doggfather to us all, Snoop Dogg.

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