Dear Readers,

Can I start a Doc Savage revival?

I recall seeing Ron Ely (TV's Tarzan) in "Doc Savage - Man of Bronze" at the local flea-pit.

This had all the necessary elements of SP although set in the 20's/30's.

Loads of gadgets, a touch of the occult, an Autogyro and spooky green things. Ripe for a big budget remake I say.

It is a travesty that this film is not available in the UK.


Yours outraged,

LH

I can't believe I forgot another Bruce Campbell steampunk-ish gem, Jack of All Trades.

A show where Blackbeard kidnaps Benjamin Franklin for Napoleon.  A bunch of gadgets and do-dads.  A psychotic descendant of Leonardo Da Vinci.  And I think I remember an episode with a brass submarine.

A little more dieselpunk/apocolyptic movie, but looks good.

Another film I feel is worth mentioning is "Perfect Creature". Basically it's a cross between a Vampire film and a detective story set in an alternate universe's steampunk London. Genetic mad science, influenza epidemics (and subsequent black marketeering of the vaccines), steam-powered automobiles, even this really cool cross between a telsa coil/taser thing and a police baton, this film oozes steampunk atmosphere. And the vampire element in this film is far from your sterotypical bunch of vampires. Overall the film is great simply for the fact it's unique. I'd certainly reccomend it.

I really quite adore Perfect Creature, it's a great movie.

My other steamy favorites are:
Disney's Treasure Planet
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

TV wise (it might have been said already, in which case I apologise): there's of course Dr Who and Torchwood, but who remembers the excellent tv show The Lost World?

I humbly offer forth my own Steampunk silent film which can be seen here:



We're making more...in addition to being a filmmaker, I'm also the mechanic on the Amaranth.

I think that Time Changer could be considered a Steampunk film.

I just caught this movie last night.  This Rich Christiano seems like a clever writer and I am tempted to find some of his other films.

I watched that recently but was put off by the overt religious messages.

The movie makes no bones about it's Christian message.  Ironically, the lack of this in other movies and how people react to it is part of what the movie is about.  Solomon Kane is nearly as overt and I enjoyed it despite not following the books very closely.  Time Changer is cleverly written like how he handles money in the future and the ending twist.  I had to laugh at how the all important goggles were included.

The Time After Time tv-series has now premiered. Like the movie of the same name it is about H. G. Wells chasing after a time-travelling Jack the Ripper.

 I ended up watching this recently late one night  by default.  Mordicai,   with Johnny Depp and Gwyneth  Paltrow.    It had strong dieselpunk overtones.  I didn't think it was as bad as the critics who panned it.   Depp did look a poor man's Terry Thomas though .
