Call of the Wild (2020)
While I liked the movie, it could easily be seen on the small screen. And while it's one of the better adaptations / remakes, I still wonder why Hollywood can't seem to tell a new story any more, and everything feels like a remake, sequel or borrowed from something else. Reviewers didn't like it (it wasn't art, or anything new or groundbreaking), but audiences appreciated it more for what it is and it got at 62/91 (reviewer/viewer split) on Rotten Tomatoes. And the story did deviate from the book, which was more violent and troubling -- but the early 1900's required children to mature quicker. The simplification and reduction in violence, make it more palatable (and sellable) to the more sensitive children of today. The Harrison (Thorton) character got Hollywood'ed a bit to make the story cheesier, and less complex... but simpler to digest and more cohesive plot, with a cleaner ending.
In the end, it is just an old classic, told in a Disney-esque fashion: feeling a little like "Lassie/Benji goes to Alaska"... in parts. But it's a classic story, and even Hollywood couldn't ruin that. One could argue the simplified and modernized adaption actually tells the story better, in the same way the cliff notes of War and Peace might be more digestible than the original, to modern audiences.
