HRH the Prince of Wales officially picks up his senior citizen’s bus pass today, and his landmark birthday got us thinking – not about architecture or the environment or how long his mum’s going to live, or whatever else he actually thinks about, but about princes.

Ah, star-crossed love, favourite of doe-eyed teenage girls all over the land. This year sees the release of Upside Down, a classic posh-bird-falls-for-common-scamp tale, the extra romantic hurdle being EXISTING ON SEPARATE GRAVITATIONAL PLANES.

To celebrate Sammy the turtle’s epic return to the big blue screen in A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Great Escape (in 3D, no less!), we’ve compiled a list of our favourite cinematic members of the order Testudines.

In Time is any studio exec’s dream. High-concept but easily simplified sci-fi, PLUS a distinctly un-futuristic set with just one really memorable visual tag which can be dragged out for all the posters, PLUS a plot point which means you can literally cast Olivia Wilde as Justin Timberlake’s mum? Gold, all of it. And the amazing thing is, In Time could have had all these and still been good. Unfortunately, twelve thousand temporal puns do not a watchable film make.
Why do you think they gave you the job?!
