    Cool "Have beens" meeting

    To express that a lot of old action movie stars from the past two decades meet somewhere, do you find correct to express it as "A meeting of the last two decades action-movie "have beens?
    A movie "have-been" meeting? Is "have-beens" possible?

    If not, how would you say it?

    Thank You

    I believe that the term is has-been.

    A meeting of two action-movie has-beens.

    I believe that the term is very rude and hurtful. It means that

    you were once somebody important; now you are no longer

    wanted (in the movies, etc.).
