Seth Macfarlane has never been one to shy away from calling his own number.

In Family Guy, he is the voice of over ten characters, including Jesus. He is the director, writer and voice of the main character in Ted – the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all-time. 

And now he’s finally done it. 

In A Million Ways to Die in the West, he’s won the quadruple crown Ben Affleck-style – he is the producer, writer, director and star actor. 

This western spoof takes place in Arizona in 1882 and features MacFarlane as a particularly cowardly sheep farmer living in the wild west.

The film has a solid cast – with Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris and Liam Neeson – as well as a cameo from Django Unchained himself. 

Continuing the theme of playing more than one role in the same movie, The Double has Jesse Eisenberg playing both Simon – an unhappy, soft-spoken employee – and James, who looks exactly the same but is actually his opposite.

He is outgoing, confident and even gets along with the woman of Simon’s dreams. 

The Double scored a 68 on Metacritic and an 83 on Rotten Tomatoes. 

If you want a bit of Danish culture – or perhaps more appetising, pastries – you can see Marie Krøyer (English subtitles) at Cinemateket on Sunday at 2:15pm and get a coffee/danish combo for 40 kroner beforehand. 

This one tells the story of the wife (at least at the beginning of the movie) of famous Danish painter PS Krøyer who, in true ‘genius’ fashion, slowly but surely slipped into insanity during his career. 

Speaking of insanity, next time you’re thinking about travelling to Turkey and smuggling two kilos of hash back to your country, you might want to think twice. 

If you’d like a crash course on how not to do this, Alan Parker’s Midnight Express tells the story of an American locked up in a Turkish prison and is playing at Cinemateket on Sunday at 9:00pm. 

This one is definitely worth a watch – it scored a 95 on Rotten Tomatoes.
