Heady Entertainment: Time to Prepare a Blunt the Size of Godzilla’s Finger


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.

New movie choices this week cover a vast array of big-screen stoner delights, with the star of Godzilla: King of the Monsters battling freaky creatures of blockbuster proportions; Rocketman recreating the glamtastic life of Elton John; and Ma transforming Octavia Spencer into a major fright figure.

Streaming options abound with smokable moments, as well. Netflix scores big with the US premiere of the instantly appealing German TV series How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast). On Amazon Prime, an all-star cast faces a comical apocalypse in the Neil Gaiman adaptation, Good Omens. HBO delivers a proper farewell with Deadwood: The Movie, a closing chapter to the sex, booze, drugs, violence, and foul language of the classic series.

Our vintage cult picks are the insane drive-in action blowout Raw Force (1981) and the eerie cat-themed horror anthology, The Uncanny (1977). And marijuana-ready music includes new drops from Mozzy, Yung Gravy, and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets.

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