Heady Entertainment: Get Down with Danny Brown and Smoke Big J’s for “Big Mouth”

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.

The mad trips of Joker dominate the new movie releases, but beyond Joaquin Phoenix cracking up and killing it, the highly-awaited Dolemite Is My Name with Eddie Murphy makes its big screen debut in limited release, and Lucy in the Sky gets literally spaced out with Natalie Portman.

On the streaming front, the revolutionary Batwoman launches her reign, Nick Kroll’s hilariously awkward puberty cartoon Big Mouth returns for a third season, and Mr. Robot melts minds one last time.

Our vintage cult flick picks highlight Wes Craven’s underrated 1984 cannibal family shock sequel, The Hills Have Eyes Part 2, as well as guerilla-style ’90s riot grrl cinema with The Films of Sarah Jacobson.

New music to pair with marijuana this weekend includes the latest LPs by Angel Olsen, Blood Orange, and Danny Brown.

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