 Not sure if it was mentioned but "Full Metal Alchemist", both the Movie, and both tv shows. Then there is Castle in the Sky, which seems to have inspired "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" a bit. And has anyone mentioned "Young Sherlock Holmes"?

Also, any lover of steampunk must check out the Quay Brothers and their amazing stop animation films. Part one of their short "Street of Crocodiles":

Not entirely a motion picture (although I did see it at a picture house) however; the national theater are now filming select plays to be shown in picture houses about the world the particular one I went to see was Frankenstein with Benadict cumberbatch playing the monster.  It most definitely had some rather steamy moments & was generally rather amazing- I would highly recommend it!

Yes, I got their DVD set for Christmas, and I have to say it is an essential for anyone loving eerie stop motion or victorian style silent films.

Yes, I think it would. Has the right mood to it. I second your nomination of this quite amazing film to be considered as Steampunk.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret is due out November 2011 according to imdb. I think the book is definitely steampunk and I hope the film is half as good as the amazing illustrations by Brian Selznick.

Plus it has Johnny Depp and Christopher Lee *drools*

It wasn't mentioned on the pages I have read (maybe on ones I didnt) but I highly recommend The Prestige for a very steam-noir type feel with magicians and great Tesla elements.

I remember two Vincent Price movies: "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" and "Dr. Phibes Rises Again" as having some elements of clockwork although settings seem to suggest early 20th century, perhaps, Art-Deco styling.

Having seen nothing but trailers for it at this point, I would respectfully like to offer "Sucker Punch" - meaning the new one that was out in March, with Emily Browning - as a potential Steampunk movie.

Ah, and see, this is why I should never answer things in the order I read them... it appears that very movie has it's OWN thread.

Enjoyed Jonah Hex,
And the Age of dragons with its steel land ship, nods more than a hat at the Genre, although not such a great film, especially if you've seen Moby Dick

Enjoyed Jonah Hex,

You Sir, are one of the few. I'm sure there was a good film in there somewhere but the fact that it was cut down to such a short running time and had so many confusing jump cuts made it an unpleasant experience for me. I'd love to know if there's an extended cut with any of the (supposed) missing hour and a half going to surface at some point. Some nice visuals though. Loved the horse mounted Gatlin. Grin

Not entirely steampunk, but Delicatessen is a brilliant film, & has all of the important bits of steampunk (to me anyway) in it! & Dominique Pinon is in it <3

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

First one to mention the Sean Connery geriatric ego trip "League of Extraodinary Gentlemen" {NOT to be confused with the graphic novels} will be given a revolver with one bullet & expected to do the decent thing.

 Grin Cheesy Grin !


Delicatessen is definatly a classic, and the underground "Veggies" definatly steampunkesk.
Love it

Got 'em on DVD, directed by Robert Fuest who directed the hard to find (and I'm still hoping) Final Programme, with Jon Finch as Moorcock's Jerry Cornelius.  Any road up, Dr P is definitely dripping with Art Deco, so slightly (but only just) outside our milieu.  They did have setam trains in those days, I believe (my father was born in 1925 and he remembers it all)

But comrades why should we constrain ourselves - or indeed constrict - to a narrowish timeline?  Style, grace and courtly manners should be timeless.  As long as the clothes look good and we conduct ourselves with decorum...

I didn't have high expectations which I find often increases my enjoyment, not too familiar with the source material either which helped, Find a lot of films nowadays are so much effects driven, and with so fast cuts, story and character development take a back seat.
 Watching the Treasure of Sierra Madre tonight, Love some Modern films, especially Sci Fi but a bit of a classic Fan.
Completely agree about the Visuals though, Made the film for me, and just on that edge of fantasy and believability

Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Brazil
Dark City (or is that just antique cyberpunk?)
Young Frankenstein?
The Day The Earth Stood Still
Metropolis  (both Fritz Lang and anime version)
Treasure Planet


this thread's been done before, but bugger that. if a new gem pops up, it's worth it.

Brazil must be up there, real classic, Love Gilliams work, and could make an argument for a lot of his films as steampunk, but that aside, I challenge anyone to watch brazil without humming "la da da da da da doooo" for a week after.
Origional "The Day the earth stood still" is a classic of any genre too
