The Crossroads of the Aether
You people with flix likely know exactly how i feel about this stuff. On a constant surch for instant steamy goodness. So we as a community will compile a steam punk playlist (with links) to all the best Steam or close enough to be enjoyable type videos on the web.
please feel free do debate what should and shouldn't belong here. Is it "steam punky" enough? let me know.

I just wanted to jump in here to recommend The Prestige (starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale, with a cool cameo by David Bowie playing Tesla), which I think has a really steampunky feel to it. Weird inventions being passed off as magic, etc.
Aside from the (very slight) Victorian techno angle, it also has some really lovely costuming and shows a a pretty wide range of period style.
Also, it is an amazingly good film, and I highly recommend it for your viewing pleasure!
Absolutely. I'd even say... watch it twice.
The Illusionist with Ed Norton came out about the same time and was somewhat eclipsed by The Prestige (which I like much better), but it's worth watching if you like period pieces. Norton was, as usual, very good.
I would add for the victorian aspect at least - and some of us here are big Sherlock Holmes fans I know, that the entire series with Jeremy Brett is available streaming. The costumes, sets, etc. alone are worth it, even if some will point out it lack sci-fi elements altogether.
The Episode "Tooth and Claw" from Doctor Who Series 2 of the revamp is extraordinarily steampunk for the series. The entire show is quite fitting as well.
Would any one consider The Bicentennial Man to be steam punk?
