2. The Golden Compass (2007)
Ok, let’s get it out of the way right from the start. For fans of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, this movie version was an abomination of the story. Watch it as a standalone movie and forget trying to match it to the book series plot and it is perfectly enjoyable. It is visually stunning which is what you want from a steampunk movie and set in an alternative world where technology’s evolution comes down in favor of airships and steam power, it almost defines the steampunk genre on its own.
