Ric Recommends: The Bear

For my latest recommendation we go all the way back to 1988 for this amazing adventure story.

Don't be fooled into thinking it's for kids (although some might like it), this is a unique movie about an orphan Bear cub's struggle for survival.

Told entirely from the young Bear's perspective it mixes high drama and wonderful footage with cute moments all wrapped up in what is ultimately a tale of redemption.

The quality of the trailer isn't great but the film is available everywhere in it's full glory on DVD. Check it out.


  1. I remember that movie. The bear's cries were really human-sounding.

  2. Looks interesting. I'll catch it up sometime.

  3. It's worth re-visiting. I just ordered myself a new copy.


Let me know what you think. I value all comments and fully intend to reply.
