The Disney Atlantis movie
Doc Savage (okay, pretty diesel)
Dr. Who/Torchwood - TV Series, available on DVD, some very steampunk planets and tech, clockwork villains, in one episode 51st century's space ship is intertwined with 18th century Versailles.
Fearless Vampire Hunter
Fifth Element. The flying noodle bar And the (spelling) Monacheewa ship. Firefly: (TV SERIES) Okay, more like space cowboys meet steam technology. But the series is great and well worth a watch :D Haven't seen the movie (titled Serenity after the ship) but I hear it's good too.
First Men in the Moon
Food of the Gods
Full Metal Alchemist
Fullmetal Alcehmist: Conqueror of Shamballa
Geo-Armour (anime),

Jason and the Argonauts (just for the big metal dude)
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Any Hammer film with the word "Frankenstein" in the title Any Hammer film with the word "Dracula" in the title Hellboy - Props, Abe's office, and the clockwork villain The Holy Mountain -The weapons
Howls Moving Castle, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, and Nausica: Valley of the Wind: (ANIME/MOVIES) Only Howls Moving Castle has any evidence of Victorian-era inspiration, but all of them employ technology that seems much more advance for the time. Laputa, especially, with it's air pirates and steam-powered mine trains. Nausica is almost post-steampunk, but the lives of the people are dependant on jerry-rigged technology.
Kronos: the Vampire Killer
Last Exile
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - (With Sean Connery) lots and lots of period/advance technology
Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland: (ANIMATED MOVIE) Based loosely on the early 1900's newspaper comics. The beginning is set in Victorian/Edwardian era, and follows Nemo -who is NOT a fish- as he finds himself in Slumberland. It's definitely a kids movie, but there are steam trains, airships, and Victorian-styled clothing, so I think it's a good movie for the little Stempumpkins in our lives.

Metropolis - the Anime version, steam world.
Moulin Rouge
The Mutant Chronicles (B-movie, made for Sci-Fi)

US The Secret Adventures of Jules VerneValley of Gwangi (cowboys and dinosaurs, hurray!) Van Hellsing - Crap Movie, cool weapons Voyagers (Old TV series now on DVD) I know- not a movie- but the plot often involves mixing of technology across different time periods in unique ways to solve plot issues...
