What's Good on Weed this Weekend: A Futile Gesture, Monster Hunter World
It's the freakin' weekend yet again -- time to grab some herb of your choice and go out and explore the wide, wide world. The best bet for today is probably just a walk in the woods (or if you're by a beach, head on out there and take it all in), but in case you want some media options this weekend, here's your weekly recommendations from us.
There's not much new at the movies this week -- The Greatest Showman is good, and Jumanji is still raking in the cash if you haven't seen that one yet. Other than that, it's probably time to take a week off of the box office. You could try watching Boss Baby, but we don't recommend it: Despite an Oscar nomination this past week, the movie is just terrible. Probably better to catch up on some of Oscar's other favorites. The Florida Project is a really good, if a little strange, one.
On Netflix, David Wain's docudrama about the National Lampoon, called A Futile and Stupid Gesture, is now streaming. It's pretty darn funny, and you can learn a little bit about the subversive geniuses who ran the National Lampoon humor empire. There's plenty of other great things to watch on there too, including a new standup special by the great Todd Glass.
And in video games, it's either Dragon Ball FighterZ or Monster Hunter World, both released this week. Dragon Ball FighterZ is a gorgeous anime fighting game, though if you're unfamiliar with fighting games or the characters, it might not be for you. Monster Hunter World is an enormous Japanese RPG with tons to see and do. The combat can be a little tough, but with some practice (and the help of friends -- you can hunt monsters with three other players), you can take down the huge creatures, and turn their stuff into better equipment. Ah, the wonderful enticement of video game loot, made even better with a great sativa.
Whatever you do this weekend, definitely stay safe and have fun! We'll see you here next Monday.
