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.

Blazing into theaters, Sonic the Hedgehog is the year’s first must-smoke-to movie event, Fantasy Island brings terror to the tropics, and Downhill teams Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a blistering dark comedy.

Streaming-wise, Snoop Dogg lights up the scintillating sci-fi hip-hop breakthrough Utopia Falls, Zoë Kravitz spins a winner on High Fidelity, Amy Poehler gets animated on Duncanville, and season two of Narcos: Mexico lights up Netflix.

Our vintage cult flick picks to watch with pot include the Spike Lee joint Crooklyn, the holiday-themed slashterpiece My Bloody Valentine, Harry Nilsson’s cartoon trip The Point, and the ’80s spring-break gut-buster Fraternity Vacation.

Marijuana-ready music this week arrives from the towering Tame Impala, hip-hop dynamo A Boogie wit Da Hoodie, and garage-rock slayers Les Butcherettes.

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