Hello,

I'm pretty new to steampunk, and trying to find out what fits in..

Is the movie 9 (nine) considered steampunk?

At the time of release it was discussed at length on here and I believe 'Stitchpunk' is the term settled on.  Smiley

ROFL. "Stitch" as in the fact that most of teh characters (heroes, etc.) were basicaly beiungs made of stiched-together coarse cloth and othe rbits and bobs; kind of like sentient golems. Lots of steampunk elements, but all about this crazy millinery type world, so "Stitch" punk.

I'd say 9 is not inherently steamy (the setting is more occult/WWI/dieselpunk) but the style and feel is very much within the steampunk "Ethos", if you will.

Firefly is another example; a TV show without any physical steampunk elements, but a mentality that runs parallel with what most of us consider steampunk.

Both are also really excellent movies/TV shows, and should be watched regardless of whether you'd label them steampunk.
