The connection between terrifying violence in the streets and its depiction in films and television programs is much more complex than one of either reckless inspiration or patriotic bulwark, writes Marcus O'Donnell.

In remote South Australian communities, dingos, corgis and chihuahuas all roam together.

With so much uncontrolled interbreeding, the canine groups are a true melting pot: Mastiffs mix with tiny Jack Russells and chihuahas and there is nearly every imaginable combination of genetics inbetween.

With a plot that could have been ripped straight from the original series, Star Trek Beyond has a lot of promise.

Unfortunately, it feels like it's been made to appeal to a series of focus groups, writes Jason Di Rosso.

The Great Barrier Reef is under considerable strain, with coral bleaching the latest in a number of environmental pressures having an impact.

Does the Reef's status as a World Heritage site actually help to protect it?

+Peter Taylor​ yes! So many times they said 'oh you'll need more bags' I usually say 'No. Pack them more. ' not to mention the idiots who put non fridge stuff in the one fridge bag and then ask 'is ok for the meat to go in the plastic bags?'

Cinemas in many Asian cities are installing bullet screens for live tweeting, and it's proving popular with young people.

Cinema chains are turning to technology to help lure their audience back to the big screen, but does this go too far?

With fewer digital natives going to the movies cinema operators are considering a range of options to lure them back.

Personally, live tweets in a movie would make me leave. Seriously. I might whisper discreetly to my friend about something I find funny or incongruous in a movie, but having everyone posting up whatever they think is not just distracting, it's disrespectful. And I think it'd become a race for "who can tweet something funny" - which is going to get boring really quickly.

I think the next stage would be men trying to come onto women, or even public insults or harassment (since even though the handle might be displayed, throw-away twitter handles are dime-a-dozen, and who knows where that tweet came from in the theatre?).

And finally - all those bright phones throughout the cinema? Yeah, even if you somehow manage to block out the tweets, you've still got a bunch of other things taking you out of the movie.

Let's face it, movie cinemas were invented when media was broadcast. Now we have narrowcasting, we just don't need them. I think they'll go the way of the horse-drawn wagon - still around but just a specialist niche in a much wider industry.
