The Crossroads of the Aether
shhhhh..nurse Ratched is around here somewhere
To quote the Animainacs: Helllloooooo nurse!
Just finished watching it. Not perfect, the story needed to be a little less confusing and the ending could have been more meaningful, but overall I liked it, especially Eva Green.
Here's the guy's other film, Thespian X: http://vimeo.com/31732260
I may be way off here, pardon my interruption if so, but I've enjoyed both Quills, and The Warrior's Way and felt there was some steampunkish elements to each. Plus as an added bonus Geoffrey Rush is in them and I enjoy his acting. While both are a bit ... bizarre, they have their charm. I'd not recommend Quill's for family viewing obviously.
The recent Three Musketeers (2011) was a fun romp through the topic as well. And one that I enjoyed in spite of its being widely panned by critiques everywhere. If only for the airship chase and battle scenes I's think it would find an audience here.
Also very recently, maybe still in theaters actually, I very much enjoyed Cloud Atlas and it had a few Steam Punk moments in there.
As a side note, here is an article and list regarding Steampunk films from Wikipedia.
HUGO! More of a family/childrens movie, but with steampunk in it none the less as it is about a clock maker! Its a really great movie, I recommend it to anyone at any age, my dad was the one who told me about it as he enjoyed it!
Prestige! About Magicians and Telsa! Whats not to love!?
Hello & Greetings Aloysius Also To All Of You All Who Are Here.
Well my assessment if things are that I have a mix of pride and disappointment. I feel proud that
Sir Thomas Sean Connery's "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" the last on screan movie of his carer is a Steampunk Movie would have liked to seen him do just a little more movies with some of the current Actors of today, he had been in other movies with Actors like Alec Baldwin & Nicholas Coppola aka Nicholas Cage as he did with Kevin Costner in "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves" & "The Untouchables", "OH" Diddos to "The First Men in the Moon" from the HG Well's novel and "Steamboy" are my favorites too.
But here is one I don't think that anyone would ever imagine a real Sleeper that is Steampunk that is Ian Flemming' 's "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang " those who are Flemming Fanatics would know that movie was from his one and only Children's Novel that he ever wrote other than The 007 Jame Bond Novels he wrote. I thought that he should have written more Chitty Bang Novels most like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes & Lost World Novels Serieses that he wrote.
And I just Love The New Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downing Jr. & Jude Law. I can't wait for their take on "The Hound Of The Baskervilles" or "The Sign Of Four" in that one as I remember that is the one where Dr. Watson meets Mary his wife and she's Holmes's client.
I'm rather a purest that I don't think much of CBS's "Elementary" which I can't buy it at all! Even though I do watch it I guess I'm one of those kind that likes to pick at my own sores can't leave it heal! The English version I would have liked it if not for where they have Holmes not as much as a Pipe Smoker for which I am a Pipe & Cigar Smoker!! Being rather Predigest here and not may be looked or classified as Steampunk but "The Twilight Series" appealing to "The Wolf" in me!
Growls & Howls
Not strictly Steampunk, but I really loved, "Hysteria" :D
