We can post a discussion for Sonic the Hedgehog, if anyone asks, and we’ll have a review soon of The Invisible Man, see? But for now, we’re reviewing a Disney family movie that opened to… a disappointing box office. The Call of the Wild isn’t exactly our usual genre, but this adaptation does feature Harrison Ford and a LOT of CGI.
And I’m willing to bet quite a few people who check in on this site have read Jack London’s most famous work. If you haven’t, you probably should.
But should you see this most recent film adaptation?
The two-part conclusion of this season feels like old-time Doctor Who, but it also retcons a good deal of what we know, and raises questions that, presumably, will be the focus of the next season. Certainly, they didn’t answer them in this one.
We do, however, get to meet the Doctor’s mother, and we encounter a new mystery in the form of this Irish lad named Brendan.
It’s a light week, and it is getting lighter as The Doctor ends her season when she takes on the Cybermen. On Better Call Saul, Jimmy’s business enters new territory, our post! Black Lightning goes it alone again as the only show on this week from his Disappearing Compatriots. Our Good Doctor Shaun also ventures into unknown territory with a new mystery disease. Riverdale gets an Alice Copper documentary. Picard works with Soji to let her figure out what she is. Also, if you didn’t rush through it, Altered Carbon’s second season is still out there.

The new vision for Star Wars is a new era, set 200 years before The Phantom Menace. Not quite as old as the (now non-canon) Old Republic era, but at a point when the Republic and the Jedi are at their height. Sounds promising.
