    I just saw a short film on Sundance called The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello which was a pretty cool animate steampunk horror film.

    @ orwellseyes

    Shame you didn't like 'Perfect Creature'. I remember seeing a trailer for the DVD a while back. The concept sounded like it had potential considering the glut of vampire films we have. Ahhh well, sounds like it's worth renting for the world building alone.

    Morello was great...

    also was dark city even if it's not steampunk (one of the best genre movies from the 90's)

    Atlantis and the treasure planet were interesting movies.

    I can recomment one similar...not sure if really steampunk buuuut....

    THE AERIAL an argentinian semi-silent film from esteban sapir:

    What I find so funny about the writing of the Wild Wild West movie was that it assumed that we can accept steam-powered inventions and mechanical spiders, but figured it needed to explain a black secret service agent. And it was a convoluted explanation in the first place. Didn't people go to the theatre knowing Will Smith was in the flick?

    @jmarquiso: You know, I never quite picked up on that until you pointed it out. Now I have to watch it again.

    City of Lost Children and Steamboy are the first that come to mind.

    There's steampunk elements in a LOT of anime. Not a whole lot in live action, though...

    Someone ought to remedy that.

    This is actually pretty tough to decide once I ge to thinking about it... MY list so far would be:

    Steamboy (Well, DUH! They can't let five minutes of running time go by without mentioning the word "steam''')

    The City of Lost Children has some amazing Steampunk elements to it, but I'd put it as more of a surrealist fantasy than anything else.

    And as much as it pains me, the utter dreck that was both "The Wild Wild West" and "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" had some cool elements to them.

    I'd also think the anime Last Exile has some steampunk elements in it, though it's a bit more Final Fantasy than Steamboy.

    Parts of the original Dune movie came across as 'steam punk" ...
