Movies to Watch for Steampunk and/or Dystopian Genres

In one of the writing groups I am in on Facebook, someone asked for recommendations in these genres. I ended up with a pretty big list, and I realized it might be useful one day. So, in the spirit of sharing, here it is. It’s a combined list for both genres, because many of them overlap. (I did, however, begin with Steampunk, so those specifically may be more toward the top of the list, if that helps.)
