Perhaps Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus might be steampunk...can't really tell yet though- but Terry Gilliam talkies seem to have that sort of feel...

I watched the 2008 version of "The Red Baron" a couple nights ago, the story was fairly predictable and we all know the ending, and it wasn't really any kind of 'punk'... but the aerial combat scenes were amazing.

Ladies, Gents, et al,

May I suggest: "The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu" (1980) with Peter Sellers. 
.                    "Mouse Hunt" (1997) The house, the string factory, Christopher Walken's gadgetry.
.                    "Edward Scissorhands" A maybe.
.                    "The Addam's Family" movies.Even more so the TV show.
.                    "Sleepy Hollow" (1999) Period early, but gadgets definitely Steampunk.
.                    "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (1993)

Regards,
 Thistlewaite

 Don't take it personally... you rarely see your movie mentioned because it's sort of a "given".
Yes 20,000 Leagues is steampunk.

Ladies, Gents, et al,

This one just occurred to me as I was awakening this AM, and the thought struck me that it might be the grand-daddy of all Steampunk movies, and it's not one which immediately comes to mind;

The African Queen(1951)

It's anachronistic, there's a steam engine which figures prominently, there's drinking, plenty of old guns and shooting, the element of the individual going up against the powers that be, and a generous helping of do-it-yourself engineering, particularly towards the end, as Bogart "mods" the torpedoes.

Am I right?

*Tips hat respectfully*

 With all due respect Sergent major,in my opinion"Le Voyage Dans la Lune"1902 would be the grand daddy of steampunk films.
However you have brought up a point that has been naggin at me as of late. When I was young (real young) I watched a number of movies with that "steampunk" feel. Shows like "Island at the top of the world","20,000 Leagues under the sea",and "Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory". I was also impressed with the John Wayne movie "The War Wagon". I'm hard pressed to call it a steam punk movie but I can't recall any historical reference to a Wells Fargo coach on a steroid trip. And with a Gatling gun on board it was pretty much a horse drawn tank.

 So, would "The War Wagon" qualify as "steampunk"?

 As far as "The African Queen" goes, I'm afraid I have to reserve my opinion till after I actually watch it. *hangs head in shame*

My Dear M. Arvis,

By all means, see if you can find a copy of The African Queen, SP or not, it is still an excellent movie, starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn, actors of talent you just don't see anymore.
I saw The War Wagon at the theater when I was a kid...spent the summer trying to figure out how to build one! Grin Now if that thing had been equipped with a vertical boiler steam engine on the back, they'd have had something...unfortunately, the "tank" concept sort of falls flat when all one has to do to immobilize it is to shoot the horses!

Thistlewaite

 Good Morning Sergent Major. *tipping hat*

 I whole heartily agree about the ease of immobilizing the war wagon.  Where it wasn't easy was the guard."Thirty-three of 'em. Twenty-eight outriders and five in the coach. Each man is armed with a Henry repeating rifle, two Colts and two hundred rounds of ammunition."  *Taw Jackson* .  And thus the trick was leading the guards away and keeping them at bay.(where the nitroglycerin came in)

 Makes the idea of an armored coach a bit silly. But with out the silly coach we lose cool factor in the movie and then they would have had to come up with a new name for the show. And worse yet you would have had a dull summer with no war wagon to build!

 Reminds me of being five or six years of age sitting on top of a busted baby buggy with all my toys arranged around making up the wings of the great Lunar Moth and flying back to Puddleby. Cheesy

 "The African Queen" by the by, is high on my viewing list. Wink

My Dear DeeMan,

I just noticed on your "Continentals" card that your companions name is Monique MacNaughten-she and I are doubtless related, probably only distantly, but nevertheless related, as MacNaughten is my matrilineal  Sept and Clan.

Unfortunately Thistlewaite you're probably not related because Monique's last name is "MacNaughton" not "MacNaughten". Sorry.

Is little late (1920s, perhaps) but The Abominable Dr. Phibes starring Vincent Price, has much of Steampunk - clockwork jazz band, for example, and SP devices in Phibes' lair. Also, one man killed with clockwork murder weapon - very Steampunk, yes?

On what grounds sir?  I believe the term movie refers to a moving picture show projected upon a screen in a cinema establishment.  I would therefore have taken this piece of work to qualify on that basis.

You may not have enjoyed the plot or story etc and therefore feel able to dismiss it  but I must say that I found the visuals (production design, art and costumes) on the "movie" to be of first class quality and it was these elements I was primarily referring to in my post.

Perhaps I was not clear in my question. May I rephrase? Are any of the good people here of the opinion that the visual aesthetic of "Moulin Rouge" may be considered as Steampunk.  My reason for asking? I am always interested in the visual in this genre and I am interested in the opinions of others with regards to this aspect.

As a seperate example - "Girl with a Pearl Earring" was a film I would not have chosen to go and watch, I did not enjoy the story and felt the plot was thin and weak however it is currently the film which I consider to be the closest to visually perfect of any similar movie I have ever seen.

I LOVE Moulin Rouge. To be truthful, as far as my own dress goes, I use the aesthetic of this movie as inspiration more than anything else.

There's an accompanying book that goes into a lot of the thought behind the costumes/sets, etc. and it's really good too, plus it has pictures of some of the individuals not shown in the movies except for a split second.
