Bear Films is the quintessential bear site packed with big hairy men. Most so-called bear sites feature guys who aren't the real thing, but Bear Films gives us authentic bears, cute cubs and daddies. Bear Films is an entire production company dedicated to creating their own hot bear videos and DVDs, and they've been doing it for over a decade. It's been a while since we last reviewed this site, so let's head back and take another look.
You simply won't find a hotter collection of gay bears anywhere else on the web. The men come in all shapes and sizes from 160-pound otters with furry chests and backs to big-bellied bears. There are cute and cuddly cubs, silver-haired daddies, muscle bears - every kind of bear man imaginable -- and even some chasers, men who aren't bears themselves but who love them. Most of the performers have body hair, some plenty of it; you'll find lots of guys with beards, tattoos and some with pieced cocks; there are also bald men, lots of furry chests and backs, and both smooth and hairy butts. And you'll also find some chubs who aren't particularly hairy plus furry porn stars including some hot daddies like Ray Stone, Alessio Romero and Brad Kalvo.
The action is hot because these are real men who really love sex; they're not just doing this for a paycheck. These hairy men suck and fuck in mostly duos, but there are are a decent amount of threesomes and a few gangbangs with up to five or six men. A lot of the sex takes place in hotel rooms, houses and condos, but Bear Films shoots in California, so there's plenty of outdoor sucking and fucking in backyards, on the lawn, by the pool or at the camp ground. Kissing, sucking, rimming, stroking, and fucking - these bears and hairy men do it all; there's even a few videos featuring some BDSM action.
Bear Films now has 469 videos in their member area. These are streaming MP4s, the newer vids sized at 1378x776 plus two lower quality versions, the older at 1036x728 plus one lower-quality version. The newer are good amateur quality full scenes, the oldest lack sharpness and clarity; the vids play smoothly, and the newer videos go full screen without much loss of quality, although the oldest don't fare as well. My only real complaint is that the videos are no longer includded for members; there's a "BUY SCENE" link leading to the pay-to-download version of each scene. Bear Films sells a line of DVDs and many of the movies in their members area come from these, but there are also videos that are exclusive to the site.
The site also offers 1,613 picture sets. Many are from the 759 models listed, and many of the newer videos also come with sets of good amateur quality digital stills. The rest are action shoots taken in the classic days of the site, and while the picture section is gone, if you type "Photos" in the search box, it will list every single pic set. The photos are digital stills, the newer sized at 1976x2400 at good amateur quality, the older at a still decent size of 768x1024 at pretty good amateur quality also; the oldest are smaller. Each picture set can be downloaded in a zip file or you can save only the pics you want, and while there are no slideshows, you can navigate from pic to pic using the arrows to the left and right of each photo.
Full members get access to 16 feeds that are actually the feed versions of sites from the company that owns Bear Films. Each offers 16 streaming videos, so there are a total of 256. The videos are similar in size to the Bear Films videos, and there are no dates so I can't tell if the feeds update. The sites range in model type; you'll find masculine men and daddies in Alpha Males and Bulldog Pit, more hairy men and bears inside Hairy and Raw, Latin men, twinks and Euro guys. And you'll find barebacking, too.
The site has some downsides. First off, there's a pre-checked offer on the billing page that looks like you're agreeing to the site terms and conditions, and there's a second unchecked one. These are below where you input your credit card info about above the START MEMBERSHIP button, so be sure and read them. The yearly membership price is only listed as "$8.33/month"; the full price isn't listed anywhere, but it should be $99.96 or within a few cents. The site terms say that trial members may get limited access; it's safest and likeliest to assume the trial doesn't give full access.
The new navigation isn't an improvement; it makes it harder to get around the site. First, you can only navigate three pages forward or back in any section - there's no link to first or last pages, so since there are 20 pages of videos and 51 pages of models, this means you may find yourself doing a lot of clicking; even more if you choose to browse the over 1,600 pic sets. The picture section is gone, and while there's an option at the end of the row of new pic sets to view all pic sets, it didn't work - you can type Photos into the search box, however, to see all the pic sets. And speaking of pic sets, each of the oldest photos carries two good-sized watermarks plus a copyright.
One last thing that bothered me is that the things that gave Bear Films its personality are gone. The events section is gone, which is disappointing since seeing the community of bear events from around the world made this site stand out. The stories have been gone for some time, and now the model info is gone, as well. On the other hand, the newer streaming videos are bigger and still look good, so that's a plus.
Despite some missteps, Bear Films delivers some of the hottest real bears on the web in sweaty hardcore action plus some smoking solo jerkoff sessions. If you're looking for big hairy men, this is the place to find them in 469 exclusive streaming videos and over 1,600 photo sets, and a new video and pic set are added every week. I loved the wide variety of men here from trim otters to bears with huge bellies and everything in between. If you are looking for real amateur bears (as well as some woofy porn stars) and more hairy men in all their natural and unshaven glory, get yourself over to Bear Films - you'll be glad you did!
