  1. Need to add the “FireFly” tv series and it’s sequel movie “Serenity” to this list. Incredible ship technical details.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Raleigh. However, I think the census among most is that both are actually Steampunk rather than Dieselpunk.

  3. Inglorious Bastards? Wizards?

    BLADE RUNNER???? Who came up with this list?

    • Wizards was included as a Dieselpunk movie in the landmark issue “Discovering Dieselpunk” published in Issue 1 of the Gatehouse Gazette. And both Inglourious Basterds (alternative ending to World War II) and Blade Runner (the heavy presence of Noir and Diesel Era aesthetics along with its Metropolis city view of LA) was agreed by the members of our organization through discussion.

    Love this WebSite !!!!! getting into this stuff !!!! Really Exciting !!!

  5. How about V for Vendetta?

    • Certainly an interesting thought, Raleigh. It’s a great movie. I’m not certain if we could place it on this list because I don’t recall a feel of the aesthetics of the Diesel Era during the movie. However, I will raise this among the members and get their thoughts.

  6. This is a great list! I’m really interested in knowing whether you decided to add V for Vendetta on here.
