Be the Bear

I just listened to an interview with the guy who played the grizzly in the movie The Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and ahem…THE BEAR!!!!! Let me say right here that no matter how many well deserved Academy Awards this movie wins this weekend, I have no intention whatsoever of seeing this movie. This guy studied a lot of bear attacks, so he could…um…be the bear.

It was really interesting to hear about all of the preparation and mechanics/ technological magic that went in to making the scenes with the bear attack so realistic. If you’re interested, you might be able to catch the podcast on CBC’s Day Six.

However, I would never dream of boycotting movies containing …pandas. Um…KUNG FU PANDA 3!!! (which I have plans to see tonight!) 

So, in honor of both the bear (yay!!!!!) from The Revenant and the Kung Fu Pandas, here are some being the bear related cartoons for your Fabulous Furry Friday Fun!

"Is it a documentary?"

“Is it a documentary?”

Being the bears!

Huzzah! Bring pandas to Washington State!

And I’ll be sure to let you know what I thought of Kung Fu Panda 3 after I see it tonight. I bet is going to get an Oscar for best panda in a dramatic role!

Be the BEAR,

    There is no way I am seeing that movie either, although it is interesting that they used a real human rather than some kine of robot bear. Exciting news! There is a Panda Express restaurant opening in Manhattan, right near my husband’s, um, Cardiologist.

      Ha ha! I hope that a trip to the cardiologist does not follow every visit to Panda Express! Do pandas wait on tables there, or are they just in the kitchen? Remember, wash your paws with water, don’t just lick them.

          I’m glad to know their food is good. We don’t have them near my town, but I do see them in my travels. And panda stuffies are always a good purchase!
