The dinosaurs Isla Nublar are back, bigger and better than ever.

The plot of this movie is in many ways irrelevant, or at least very predictable.

Building on the narrative established by the previous instalments of this franchise, we return to Isla Nublar which is now home to a dinosaur theme park.

In order to boost visitor numbers, some experimental genetic manipulation is used to create a new exhibit – unsurprisingly things don’t quite go to plan and soon enough the dinosaurs are on the loose and the humans are on the run.

If you were commuting in Australia today and saw someone holding the Herald Sun newspaper with a perplexed look on their face, they may have been reading this letter.

Jan, from Traralgon, sent in her thoughts over the ongoing same-sex marriage debate.

'When I was a kid at school, we were taught about the birds and the bees. Not the birds and the birds or the bees and the bees. Just saying...,' she said.

Girls on top in updated apocalyptic classic

Throughout his career, Australian director George Miller has demonstrated enormous range – from family-friendly favorites such as Babe, and Happy Feet, to the post-apocalyptic anti-hero that is Mad Max.

It was in 1979 that the first Mad Max movie was released. With an always edgy Mel Gibson in the title role, the world envisaged by Miller was cruel, unforgiving, and often randomly sadistic. The sequel in 1981 ramped up the violence, and then Beyond Thunderdome in 1985 brought a new sense of intense theatre to the imagined world that perhaps awaits us in the future.

Contestant Clint Arlis: 'Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind'

In its more than a decade on the air, there has never been a gay contestant on ABC's The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise that viewers knew about.

Is that about to change?

Promos for next week's episode of the reality show tease that there might be a possible romance brewing between contestants Clint and JJ who seem more interested in each other than courting Kaitlyn Bristowe.

'Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind,' Clint says in the promo. 'Kaitlyn’s not the right girl for me. I love JJ, so I need the rose tonight.'
