Didnt see it browsing the thread, but what about the film The Prestige with Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale? Besides being victorian its oh so steamy, with DAVID BOWIE playing Tesla!! Luved it.

'The Prestige' is absolutely my favorite film, steampunk or not.  Bowie's presence is helpful, too.  Wink
Has anyone mentioned the anime series 'Last Exile'?  I loved it when I first saw it; it was much more accessible for me than other anime, not being too technicolor or (dare I say it?) silly.

For those who, like me, adored 2007's 'Stardust' there's good news.

A sequel is in the works.

I just saw Sherlock Holmes, very Steamy!  Every Steampunk should love it.

First time I saw anything to do with Last Exile was about three weeks ago, when I ran across somebody's amv using Last Exile as the action sequencing for Abney Park's tune She. I love those Vanships, and those blocky green airships, and especially the battles. Is it still in circulation for sale?

You should still be able to find Last Exile easily enough. Its a good example of Dieselpunk style and a very accessible adventure story by anime standards, though I found the 'hero' was a bit wet. I only wish the series had been around when I were a lad. The younger me would have lapped it up all the more.

Its funny when i was a kid I remember seeing Captain Nemo and his under water city. I was enamored by it. having seen it now 35 years later though the city exteriors and the bridge of the Nautilus are exceptional the sub itself and the interiors don't hold up as well. Still a great little movie.

I love to hate Dr Loveless and his incredible steampunk wheelchair (see its glory 3mins 15secs into video).
What do you think?

The Wild Wild West may have been reviewed as Vile Vile West and given a three asteroids (terrible) rating, but the aesthetics and steampunk elements are fantabulous!!!!

ENJOY the clip

I know that it's TV and not a cinema release but has anyone else noticed the number of Steampunk friendly episodes there are in the Canadian series 'Murdoch Mysteries' set in Toronto circa 1895?

 References to Tesla, H.G. Wells, dirigibles, Conan Doyle, Buffalo Bill, Jack The Ripper, Houdini, werewolves.....

I'm enjoying this a lot.

I was gonna say that. You stole my words.
You're a bad person. :<

But, yes. Shakespeare's airship was certainly steampunk.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't that film have a giant steam-powered spider lookin' thing?

I just watched this:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112682/combined

The original title is 'La cité des enfants perdus'. I'd recommend you watch it in French with Fnglish subtitles, the English soundtrack is terrible.

It's dark, trippy and surrealist, with lots of brass, contraptions, brains in jars and mad scientists.

Damn, someone else got there first :lol:

I thought it would be quite cult, considering it was from the director that did 'The Delicatessen'.

Don't think it's really worth starting a new thread for but any one in the UK who'll be at home at 1pm today can catch  Disney's 1954 classic '20,000 Leagues Under The Sea' on C4 at 1.05pm

although a bit odd as a honorable mention ihave to put "Sukiyaki Western Django" in there because of quentin tarantinos wheelchair.    plus well the hand cranked gatling shotgun towards the end was neat. ( there would be a clip here however as im typing this youtube is apparently down)
