Here's a super little steampunk film from Germany that has some really outstanding CGI, as well as being just beautiful to look at.  Before you start thinking there's something wrong with the lipsynching, yes, it's dubbed into English both to reach as many viewers as possible, and because the original German dialog's sound quality was too poor (according to the production notes.)

A week or two ago, Republibot 1.0 (My boss) reviewed "The Three Musketeers." (You can read it online here ) Despite the fact that it wasn't at all a glowing review, I found some aspects of it fascinating (Airships. Milla. Etc. No, really, there's no "Etc" about it, it's just Milla and Airships, truth be told) so I decided to see the movie myself and review it *only* if something interesting struck me about it. We don't generally do multiple reviews of the same film, after all.

Found this via the almost always excellent ToplessRobot ( - the Friday Fan Fiction highlight is always a bit scary, but the site generally stays away from politics and focuses firmly down on good old fashion genre geekery and nerdery.

However, this is by far the coolest thing I have seen there yet. It is up to R3 to discuss the relative merits of it as SteamPunk though...
