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 this week, 21 Brides bangs out booming action, It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is pure emotional overwhelm, and Frozen 2 ups Disney’s antic animated ante whole new levels of eye candy. Adjust the strains you consume before each accordingly.

On the streaming side, marijuana-loving stand-up slayer Iliza Shlesinger mangles and mashes the supposed sanctity of marriage in Unveiled on Netflix, and the sci-fi series The Feed literally bends brains on Amazon Prime.

Our vintage cult flick picks are a couple of pairs: the fun ’80s hair-raisers House (1986) and House II: The Second Story (1987), along with two bake-along bloodsucker sagas, the classy Dracula (1979) and the campy Zoltan: Hound of Dracula (1977).

New tunes for tokers arrive in high style this week with fresh dispatches from Action Bronson, Animal Collective, Beck, and Lord Mantis. That’s one hell of a lit line-up!

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