I just got out of Call Of The Wild

I have to say, I enjoyed the hell out of it.

Ok, the CGI dog is nowhere near Planet Of The Apes levels of greatness, but it's certainly better than the trailer suggested and I was moved at all the right times. The CGI in general was a bit ropey at times, but it's only a minor gripe.

Harrison Ford is as reliable as you'd expect, and truthfully, he is more invested in an original role than he has been in a while, at least in anything I have seen.

I think it is quality family entertainment, there are some funny moments there is no bad language and it moves at a quick pace. But I think this will have to find its audience on home release.

As sadly, I don't think this will find much of an audience, as there is too much kid friendly competition. I think it would have been perfect for a Thanksgiving/Christmas release!! I think it would have done better, if it was released then.

It was about half full in my screening, about 40/50 in a 100 seat hall.

Trivia

The number A113 (famous as a room at CalArts where young character animation students honed their craft before going on to careers at Disney or Pixar) is briefly visible on a bulletin board. Director Chris Sanders is a graduate of CalArts. An A113 Easter egg can be found hidden in Disney and Pixar films, as well as other films.


Quotes

John Thornton: This is a map of the Yukon. My son was always reading adventure stories, crazy about the news coming out of the Yukon. Wasn't the gold, he didn't care about that, it was the mountains. He spent all day looking at maps and pictures of the mountains, ...


Goofs

In the 1890s, business signs atop town store facades would still be using periods in the names displayed. So, for example, the signs would say "Barber Shop." and "Post Office." (using periods) rather than simply "Barber Shop" and "Post Office" (no period).

Alternate Versions

Prior to re-shoots, Mercedes, Charles, and the remaining dog team die (off-screen) on the broken-up river; only Hal survives to return to Dawson and confront John Thornton in the Argonaut saloon. (Paraphrased: "I lost everything because of you: my dogs... my sister...") Despite successful test screenings, studio heads changed this to Hal saying, "My dogs ran off" -- indicating the team and (one assumes) Mercedes and Charles survived -- in an attempt to keep children from being upset.
