I don't get Equilibrium and The Day the Earth Stood Still (TDTESS, hereafter)

Can someone defend those as SP?

I´d imagine Equilibrium is on there because some airships are seen in it. Some people have low standards. I don´t see how a movie about two hallucinating school girls who kill their parents fit either.

I personally don't see Tank Girl, Buckaroo Banzai, or Dark City as being particulary SP. 

Here's a link to the essentials list on Aether Emporium.  http://etheremporium.pbwiki.com/Steampunk%20Essentials.  I'm working on an update, and will post it soon for comment.  In the meantime, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Added the suggestions and pulled Tank Girl and Equallibrium, not sure how they got there. It was late.

Anyhow I must thank Dax for the Link to Aether Emporiums Essentials:
http://etheremporium.pbwiki.com/Steampunk%20Essentials

I will add those and the other ones from the old threads soon.

Stardust (2007)
Series of unfortunate events (2004)
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)
Treasure Planet (2002)


While I agree with bits and pieces of Stardust - not the whole movie was steampunk, and I don't think that was the intent - the ship was, and the outfits were, but I don't think that was what they were going for;
Agreed with Series, but it wasn't that great of a movie;
Sweeney Todd: YES.  Very gorgeous in all the outfits, the ideas, the general feeling of the movie (save for the singing, ick);
Treasure Planet - classic steampunk + space.  Almost perfect in every way for steampunk (save for the spacey bits) but the book itself was about pirates, and Disney thought why not make it steampunk!  And it worked!
One thing: you didn't include Atlantis, and that's dripping steampunk.

Although random question, is Titan A.E. steampunk?

I wasn't necessarily saying they weren't - just that I could not see the steaminess.  If someone can provide some good evidence, they could be SP movies.

Titan A. E., while a decent movie, is not what I'd call steampunk.  Better to classify it in scifi and move on.  If I could find my old VHS copy, I'd give it a whirl, though.

I have been busy, school, the last few days but I am glad to see the responses coming, I took Tank Girl ad equalibrium out becuase they real aren't steampunk, and if a movie is on simply for eyecandy purposes I would prefer to be more steamy eye candy.

added a few more titles, remember they are all up for discussion and review.

What was that pre-green lit movie the Star Trek writer told us about at the Comic Con International panel? Has there been any updates on that? I've been away a while. I remember he said Orlando Bloom showed interest in it and it included Harry Houdini and such...

Stardust is fantasy rather than science fiction, as is, I think, The Golden Compass, yet I find both to be visually inspiring.

Hmm, I'd be tempted to suggest Porco Rosso (1992-Hayao Miyazaki) it is a little late, being set in World War One Italy so it is a personal thing, but I don't really feel the diesel era starts till the 1930's.
The earlier 1910-20s of more experimental aircraft, while not "steam" does for me fit more with the steam era experimentalism.
