Always good to see you again Mhatter99. I've finished with the 'Expendables' poster hubs, for the time being anyway. Next week back to the glory days of classic movie posters and real artistry.

Thanks for doing a poster hub on one of my favorites of all-time. I have seen every single one of these movies. I will be the first to admit that he has made some pretty horrible movies....Sunset, Breakfast of Champions(no poster here), The Whole Ten Yards and North come to immediate mind.

But he has made some great movies....Die Hard changed action films for years....Fifth Element and 12 Monkeys are two of the better sci-fi films of all-time....The Sixth Sense is one of the greatest thrillers of all-time with one of the best twist endings ever....Pulp Fiction is simply one of the best movies of all-time.

On the comedy side of things...Look Whose Talking and ......ok....his comedies are not very good. Sin City is a ground breaking movie. And then we have the guilty pleasures of Armageddon, Unbreakable, Red and Death Becomes Her. This year he already gave us Moonrise Kingdom- a wonderful quirky movie and Expendables 2- his scenes with Arnold might be the highlight of the movie.....and next month here comes Looper which I have high hopes for.

As for the posters...I like the Pulp Fiction one with Bruce in it and the Japanese Die Hard ones the best....with Looper looking very impressive as well.

Voted up, awesome and interesting.

Thanks Bruce, appreciate the comment, info, observations, preferences and vote.

I told you I'd get round to Willis eventually. :)

I left out a few movies that were low scoring, he only voiced, or he had a cameo in because there were too many for the hub.

I see Pulp Fiction as primarily a Travolta / Jackson film also starring Bruce Willis. Watched the Blu-ray recently outstanding quality.

My favourite Willis film after all these years is still Die Hard (1988) one of the greatest action movies of all time and featuring one of the best villains in movie history, Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman).

Thanks for posting amigo.


KTCat94 4 years ago

Very cool Hub on Bruce Willis! This is a good Hub for me, since I've seen a bunch of Bruce Willis movies. I haven't seen any of the reputably bad ones, but Bruce has made a lot of good movies! My favorites are The Fifth Element, Die Hard, and Unbreakable. I'm also pretty excited about Looper, and there are a few on this list that apparently it's imperative I watch...

Bruce is easily one of the best action stars out there - he even does alright in romantic movies. I heard he isn't that great a person off-screen and on the set, though...http://pinstor.us/viralcontent/7-celebrities-diffi...
