Stampunk Movies

On Facebook I’m in a group calld “Steampunk Tendencies“. It’s a pretty cool group, because of the pictures and videos.

In the group, they said that the movie ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” was a steampunk movie. I saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when I was a kid, and thought it was good at the time. So I started wondering what other steampunk movies there were. So I looked it up.

Last night I watched the first half of Going Postal By Terry Pratchett. I was quite good! It’s about this con man, who gets put in charge of the Post Office instead of death. At first he resists, but then things start going pretty well. Then he starts having dreams (hallucinations?) of the people he wronged when he was a con man, including the woman he’s falling in love with.

At the same time, the Post Office competition, a kinda flashing light telegraph service, is trying to foil his post office successes. And there’s more!

Suprisingly good plot, really really nice visuals, I can’t wait to watch part two.
