There’s a lot of fantasy in movies to begin with. Gotta accept it for what it is, entertainment. My wife and I really enjoyed the movie

I haven’t seen it yet, but if the cgi is well done and doesn’t distract from the movie then I don’t care.

"Buck" was not only CGI, but movements etc were done with a human actor playing the dog.
From a USA TODAY article>


The new screen adaptation of Jack London’s famed 1903 novel, set in the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, features an unusual screen pairing: Ford and "Planet of the Apes” motion-capture actor Terry Notary, who plays Buck.

Having the human actor, who was digitally transformed into the massive sled dog, helped Ford. “I had an emotional relationship with this consciousness that was Terry Notary. And he became the consciousness of Buck,” he says.

Question: In those scenes where you are patting Buck on the head, was it hard getting used to head-patting Terry Notary?

Harrison Ford: Petting him on the head wasn’t the weird part. Rubbing him on the belly was a little weird at first. We got over it real quick. It just becomes normal.

Next thing you'll know is that the direwolves in Game Of Thrones were CGI.

Are the Direwolves In 'Game of Thrones' Real?

Yes and no for the Game of Thrones direwolves.


All About the Wolves in Game of Thrones Some CGI was used to make the real dogs look more like the ancient and now extinct direwolves.

My thoughts exactly.

The whole process of CGI rendering and motion capture is quite fascinating and amazing technologies. I had read that the human actor portraying Buck was a Cirque Du Soleil alum, so obviously very athletic and flexible. I'm sure it made it easier for Ford to act opposite someone who can make eye contact than just a blank green screen. Just like animated movies, if it's a good story well done, one can totally be swept up into it emotionally, whether "realistic" or not.

I once was a movie that featured a real dog. I think Adam Fethe was the co-star. And it had that actress that used to be on that show that was once on channel 12.

I thought Harrison Ford was CGI and the dog was real.

The Call of the Wild is quite good and has a lot of scenes which would have to be made using CGI or else they would be prohibitively expensive and next to impossible to create. Many feature animals of various kinds.

I just read yesterday that this movie is now projected to lose $50 million so it sounds like the reaction by potential movie goers who heard about the use of CGI was to not pay the money to see it. The article in Variety said the CGI was very expensive and drove the costs through the roof. It said they needed to gross between $250 and $275 million to break even. Sounds like the CGI decision was a costly error.
