Call Of The Wild Bluray Review Twitter Party

Movies

Twitter Party with Prizes May 12th

Just a few months ago The Call Of The Wild (Rated PG, 2020), the live action/animation hybrid feature film starring Harrison Ford  entertained audiences on the big screen. As of May 12 the most modern and technically-sophisticated cinematographic interpretation of Jack London's classic novel to date is coming home. Set against the backdrop of the Canadian Yukon during the historical 1890s Gold Rush era, this epic adventure is now available for home entertainment on Digital and Blu-ray.


The Call of The Wild Buck Dog


Since the book by the same name was first published in 1903, The Call of the Wild has been made into at least five films, including versions starring Hollywood's leading men like Clark Gable (1935) and Charlton Heston (1972).  

What's notable about the latest remake, this time by 20th Century Fox Studios, is that the relationship and bond that form in the Yukon Territory between a lost-in-life man named John Thornton (played by Ford) and a dog named Buck (ironically portrayed by a dog named Buckley, a St. Bernard - Scotch Collie mix rescued from an animal shelter by the movie's animal trainers ) is more realistic than ever. This is largely because this is the first time stop motion technology was used to animate all of the animal action in a full-length feature film of this magnitude.

The scenery, sets, costumes, and music are all spectacular -- which is no surprise considering 20th Century Fox was acquired by The Disney Company just over a year ago. However, what viewers will find particularly fascinating is how Buck's character was brought to life and so convincingly portrayed. You'll be looking at Buck in action scenes throughout this picture thinking how did they train that dog to do that because it sure doesn't look computer generated.

After watching this movie yourself, do not miss the behind the scenes making of extras that are included with interviews with the cast and crew. There you'll get a peek at -- among other backstage things -- how professional actor, stuntman and movement coach Terry Notary (AvatarThe Hobbit  film trilogy, Avengers: Infinity WarsAvengers: Endgame), once a Cirque du Soleil performer and UCLA gymnast, channeled his inner focused hyper energy for the many stop motion sequences. In one of the bonus feature you'll be intrigued to see Notary at work as the action was filmed, wearing a tight gray suit and cap, and carbon fiber arm paw-like extensions that made it possible for him to walk, run, jump and move about on all fours like a real dog.
