  • Steampunk Sherlock

    Okay, I admit that I take a certain delight in bad movies and Asylum certainly knows how to crank out some low budget movies. If you a fan of Sherlock Holmes, low budget movies, and steampunk, you might consider giving Asylum’s version of Sherlock Holmes a try. Don’t expect a whole lot, just go with […]

  • Thelomeris – First Teaser 2011

    I like the dark steampunk look of this movie. I recently read Mann’s Ghosts of Manhattan (my review) and I imagined the city looking like this.  

  • Aurora – The complete film

    This wonderful steampunk movie was put together over a 3 year period with a modest budget of $1,800. I love it. It is amazing what people, who love what they are doing, can create.

    My last steampunk movie pick was “Time After Time” it was a very cool movie and well worth your *ahem* time. I thought that I would stick with the steampunk time theme with this movie pick, free ebook, and game. The Time Machine. If you are like me you may prefer the old 1960 version […]

  • This week’s steampunk movie pick: Time After Time

    I loved this movie back in the day. It’s a very strange movie, I once watched this movie on my VCR and the time did not change. It flashed 12:00 — very strange indeed. I wont be around tonight, my nephew Will is graduating from High School. I guess “time” has been rolling around in […]

    It’s Friday, and time for me to pick out another steampunk movie. The last two have been a little on the dark side so let’s shift gears and pick out a classic.

  • The Prestige trailer

    My previous picks for steampunk movies have been The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen , and Young Sherlock Holmes. This Friday I have picked “The Prestige“. I really enjoyed the movie.
