Assorted Bits & Pieces: Men On A Mission Meme


The awesome exploitation and general movie madness of Aaron, the owner of The Death Rattle, tagged me with coming up with a meme theme. I decided to go with various 'Men On A Mission' images. Not all of these are caps from films, though. I thought I'd mix it up a bit with some artwork, or images from magazines and DVD covers. Some of those capture the theme better than a screen cap, I think. Below the images are five bloggers tagged for a covert mission to find a meme, capture it and expose them for everyone to see.

I've left out some obvious choices, but figured I'd throw in titles some people might not have heard of. Whether they're attempting to get inside an impregnable fortress, retrieve a stash of stolen gold, rescuing a captive, or capturing a brutal warlord, all these guys have one thing in common--they're expendable! In order of year of production, these are....
