I actually enjoyed Young Einstein. I have not watched it since it was first released over twenty years ago. I was thinking that it was going to be very cheesy and childish. Which it was but in a most entertaining kind of way  Wink

I love "Young Einstein" too.  I'm collecting parts to build his Electricfied Violin. 
I need some help on some Tasmanian Electrical parts, but will start a thead in the Tactile Forum.
Someone really needs to know their Science History to enjoy many of the jokes.

If it has already been mentioned (and after 21 pages of this thread I think that plausible) I apologise....

The Great Race definitely, definitely has a certain steampunk flair about it...

Professor Fate - Daredevil Stunt #1




I love "The Great Race".  A friend of mine carried the soaking wet and scantly clad Natalie Wood out of the lake.  I asked him, "Ken, you actually accepted money to do that?"  Wink   Shucks, I would have paid Blake Edwards for the honor.
I do love the contraptions, especially in the begining minutes.  Professor Fates Bicycle for Two Air Ship especially.  Smiley

I've got a friend who writes for the Sci-Fi* channel, and just dropped a bug into his ear, "What the world wants is a good Steampunk movie.  We'll see how far it gets.  I'm half way tempted to give his e-mail address out and let all here bombard him with requests.  Wink

Another similar movie with some of the same cast and plot line was  Monte Carlo or Bust a.k.a. Those Daring Young Men in their Jaunty Jalopies  from the same camp as Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines

   Some of the characteristics that make Steampunk, IMHO, is science and adventures.  So while this film is not Steampunk, it contains some of the characteristics of Steampunk.  I would LOVE to see this remade as a Full Steampunk Aural-Ocular adventure.
   You will have to have a good memory to recall this 1967 adventure flick.  It IS available through Netflix, problem is, it looks like someone recorded it by aiming a video recorder at a TV screen.  The name of the film is "Island of the Lost".
   It contains a sailing ship, with a full scientific lab, pretty girls, a child and a pet seal, a strange lost island with never before seen wild animals (Which just happen to look like Dogs with Fans added to them, and flightless birds that oddly enough look like Ostrich with dangerous claws added to their feet.)
   Should any of you have seen a High Quality version of this movie, please let me know.  Even with a lower quality, it's still a great adventure film.

Happy to see Young Sherlock Holmes mentioned.  And another agreement on the scariness of the Wheelers from Return to Oz.

 So far this holidays I have watched   2   classic movies that may be more diesel punk than   steampunk

 The original 1966 Batman. It is replete with   faux Victorian and Edwardian  reference.

 Mad Max 2  or the Road Warrior.   Post apocalyptic Australia.  The precursors to Rat Rods  are pretty groovy

That was a really good adaptation. (One of these day's I'm going to get my hands on about 10 m of velvet and make a version of Adora Dearheart's dress-coat).

MM2 was always the best of the original films (I haven't seen Fury Road so can't comment on that one). Those vehicles are ripe for Steampunking though; once all the gasoline is burnt off can't you just see them kitted out with a boiler and pistons?

Interesting - as I've mentioned elsewhere, that was really savaged by the reviewers on the BBC's Film 2016. Of course, it's all in the 'eye of the beholder'. For example, I seem to be one of the few people who actually likes Van Helsing...

I loved 'Van Helsing'. And I'll no doubt watch the reboot.
And having just watched 'Victor Frankenstein' I have to say that, although it's in no way a classic, it held my attention and entertained me. Perhaps because I expected it to be the worst film in history based on certain critical reviews my expectations were very low. But it's a popcorn time waster. And that's fine by me.
