Default Fake Dog

I don't believe it !! The new movie version of "Call of the Wild" uses a cgmi to create Buck--give me a break--why are we to paying good money to see video games. The last two movies I went to,were Ford vs Ferrari & 1917--not much cgmi--also, there are lots of unemployed dog actors--they need a break

Oh, I don't know about that


The scene of the parting of the Red Sea was achieved by using large dunk tanks flooded with Jello. The film was then shown in reverse to achieve the illusion of the sea being 'parted'. Gelatin was added to the tanks to give the water a sea-like consistency!
Directed by: Cecil B.DeMille

CGI isn’t limited by the laws of physics or the fragility of the human...or canine...body. When action and adventure are the goals, why would movie makers want to limit themselves. Get used to it.

Not to mention the trouble the movie A Dog's Purpose got into over the mishandling of a frightened dog... If it looks like a dog and is doing dangerous things, I'm okay with it not being a real dog.

Aren't movies pretend anyway? Actors are memorizing words and acting-out their character...yet we watch them. I'd have no issues "IF" I wanted to see this movie with the fake dog. LOTS of movies use props etc. What about Star Wars...???

Some of the actors lose themselves in their roles. Heath Ledger lost himself in playing the role of The Joker in The Dark Knight. And the most recent Joker actor lost 50 lbs to play that role.

The acutely obvious answer is, you don't have to spend your money watching them.

This is not a valid gripe the movie was good although I would have liked a different ending for Harrison Ford.

Not sure if you go to movies much but the 20 most popular movies since Gone With The Wind are not real. I don’t go to the movies to see what I can see out my window. I go to visualize the what if, wouldn't it be nice, look into the future, experience visualizations and concepts that are outside my reality.

I watched the trailer and it was apparent that Buck is CGI animation and so I gave the film two stars.

One for convincing me to wait for the Netflix showing; two for prompting me to re-read the book, which has been a favorite of mine for over 50 years.
