Just watched a film about a dog called Goodyear. The film’s called Finch. You’ll have heard about it.
It’s a futuristic, but pretty retro, sort of film, with clear reference to Silent Running from the early 70s.
My kids cried when they first watched Silent Running and there’s a chance they might do the same if the see Finch.
Obviously, there was no dog in Silent Running. But there were robotic equivalents.
In Finch, there was a robot-ish Huey, but instead of the other two robots, Finch has a Jeff.
As a dog owner, Goodyear pretty much has a leading role. And it was good to see that the dog came out ok in the end.
