Sci-Fi Steampunk

Sci-Fi Steampunk Movies & TV Shows

The stories in this category are set similar to the history of the 19th century’s American Wild West or British Victorian era in a theme portending a future apocalypse in a fantasy world that employs steam power.

Also, steam punk may include additional themes from the genres of horror, fantasy, alternate history, historical fiction and other arms if speculative fiction thereby making steampunk a hybrid genre.

This genre is one of the oldest Sci-Fi sub-genres to have existed with stories like A Trip to the Moon (1902), 20,000 leagues under the sea (1925) and Impossible Voyage (1904). All these shows were released far back as the nineteen hundreds. Here are more recommendations worth watching:

  1. Now, this is a genre I was not expected to see. I remember some of the movies you mentioned and the series very well. I am a fan of the Full Metal Alchemist series. Have you seen the live action movie? That is how you have to do it. It has the same feeling as the series and the characters and I’m seriously not kidding, it looks exactly like the anime. Hollywood can definitely learn something from these creators. They tried similar projects like Avatar, The Last Airbender, and Dragon Ball Z which resulted in cinematic disaster. The genre has been outshined by other most popular like the Space genre but it has the potential to produce cinematic gems.

    1. Hi Jane,

      I know what you mean. I saw Full Metal Alchemist on Netflix and was very surprised. It is true that this genre is not as popular as the others but if you think about it has the most interesting stories.
