Hey pallies, likes bein' on a Dino-high as we recently swankly shared a terrific trio of potent posts accentin' our most beloved Dino as swingin' spyster Matt Helm, we just couldn't resist puttin' the tags Dean Martin and Matt Helm into the ol' google search engine to see if more golden Dino-treasure a la Helm woulda appear. Well likes what popped up we woulda classify as "gold," but we still couldn't resist sharin' it with all youse Dino-philes gathered at our humble little ilovedinomartin Dino-conclave.
Likes what we found was a Dino-As-Matt-Helm post from July 15, 2014 from the blog, "WORSE MOVIES EVER MADE." While we never ever woulda comes close to agreein' with the terrible thought that the Helmers are 'mong the "worst" flicks ever put on the big screen, we decided to share the words of blogger Bryce with youse 'cause this dude has a way with words and the problemo isn't that he describes this quartet of Dino-epics incorrectly, it's a matter that he doesn't appreciate 'em likes true Dino-holics do.
We tagged this post with what we consider one of Bryce's coolest comments 'bout our Dino as Helm..."Dino played him as a lecherous, chain-smoking, permanently pickled lounge lizard who gets more crumpet than Greggs." We couldn't 'gree with him more on these true thoughts, but it is clear that he hasn't written them with the perspective of awesome appreciation for our Dino bein' able to play himself, cool, hip, and ever randy as Matt Helm. Truly, it appears that commentator Bryce doesn't "get Martin."
Likes 'nother reason that we share this review with youse is that recently, on August 29 of this Dino-year, a lone patterer tagged "konrad" has shared a deeply delightful defense of these deeply delight Dino-capers and we wanna shares his incredible insights with Dino-devotees everywhere and honor a true Dino-holic for bein' so open and affirmin' of our one and only Dino as Matt Helm. We quote konrad.....
"I am a huge fan of the “Matt Helm” Series and I’m very distraught that it hadn’t been prolonged or revived. In contrary to the James Bond franchise I can reenact it’s un-earnesty. It’s simply humour and Dean Martin plays its funnies with great pleasure and verve. In case of James Bond I’m still unsure whther they see it seriously or only ironically? But with Matt Helm the satiric content is a convinced break from everyday boringness! Why they’re seen as worst movies I have no clue.
Well stated pallie konrad, we couldn't have stated it better!!!!! It wonderfully warms out Dino-hearts to know that the wider world is full of pallies like konrad who "get Martin" and remarkably relish our King of Cool as Matt Helm. To checks this out in it's original source, likes simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram.
Yours in Dino,
Dino Martin Peters
