The Call of the Wild

Happy Monday to you!  Yesterday was a cold and dreary day, so hubby and I decided to go to the movies.  We usually go on Tuesday's during the winter, but haven't seen any lately that drew us in-until yesterday.  You all know what a dog lover I am, so this was a must see.  I believe my girls and I read this book decades ago, but I really didn't remember the story.  It was such a good movie, despite Buck being animated as well as the other sled dogs and Timber Wolves.  It didn't hurt that the setting was Alaska-a state hubby and I love.  I will be honest, the only thing that kept me from crying was that they weren't real dogs.  A good friend went with her hubby to a later showing and she did cry.  The robotic/animation has gotten so good that at times it was hard to remember the dogs weren't real-especially when they were about to be mistreated. I'm sure if I go back and reread the story now, the movie may disappoint-but it was good just the same.
So if you are looking for a good flick on some cold day, go see this one.  Harrison Ford is fantastic and never disappoints.
Tomorrow hubby and I are heading down to Boulder to meet a friend that I haven't seen in 28 years.  We both left Silicon Valley at the same time; we headed to Sonoma County and they headed back to Indiana.  She was such a pivotal woman/mentor in my life when I was a young mom; I can't wait to meet her for lunch and catch up.
Hope you are all having a great day!


  1. Movie dates with our dh's are always so special, this seems like a good one. I especially love going to the movies for the popcorn! ~grin~
    Enjoy catching up with your dear friend.

  2. Thank you for sharing your views on this movie, I've heard it was good. I didn't realize the dogs weren't real. I hope you enjoyed your lunch with your friend/mentor! How very special!

  3. Your review is giving me the idea to see Call of the Wild, thanks. Nice to meet up with your friend after so many years.
