The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

Ladies & Gentlemen,

So what Steampunk Movies to you consider to be decent? Despite having some great moments "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" was an overall disappointment for most folks, but what other films have actually left you satisfied? Some favorites of mine are, "The First Men in the Moon" from the HG Well's novel, and "Steamboy." Next year will see "Larklight" which looks promising, but what are your thoughts?

Yours Faithfully, Aloysius

This is in no particular order:

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Around the World in 80 Days

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

The Time Traveler

Journey to the Center of the Earth

The Land That Time Forgot


The Mysterious Island of Dr. No

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines

I would have to say I believe it is called "Island of lost children " a french film with subtitles. It has been around for a while but it is the best steampunk film I have seen in a while. Not a lot of FX but a lot of steampunk stuff. Also Dune works for me as well

Well, the movies that I was drawn to growing up - 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Time Machine, Island at the Top of the World, Journey to the Center of the Earth, had an aesthetic and technology that I really appreciated.  They are still fun to watch.  I had the 20,000 Leagues Viewmaster set and spent a long time imagining myself in that world. I really enjoyed Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and Game of Shadows, although the second movie was a little over done.  

My first is "Island of lost children"  a french film but available at my local library   then perhaps "The Wild Wild West" with Will Smith. The "Time Machine" both early one and the latest one. Dune is a bit steampunkish plus of course Metropolis and "things to come"  

I watched on Netflix yesterday, "Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart". It was neat, weird, and sad at the same time.

Our microbudget steampunk film version of Frankenstein has been released! (think Edwardian) Please rate and share. Original score. 

For some reason Amazon separated the streaming vs the DVD reviews. If you review for one it won't show up for the other. No idea why.

Link for Amazon Streaming: (this is standard quality)

Link for DVD on Amazon: (good quality)


Thank you again everyone.

The Golden compass is one of my favorite. I personally enjoyed the role played by daniel craig.
