So what would you say about movies like Gattaca and Equilibrium?
Equilibrium also has airships and Albert Speer architecture.
Blacky, I think that you are working too hard at trying to Pigeon Hole the Pigeon Holes. LOL
I think that I like that term 'Dieselpulp' as well. Though I'm not to sure if ~ MY ~ interpretation exactly melds with yours. (Go Figure.)
To me, 'DIESELPULP' might actually be a better umbrella descriptive for all of that which we try and cram under the 'Dieselpunk' header. If one takes into consideration the vast variety of topics that the old Pulp Magazines encompassed (everything from Romance, to Western, Crime, War, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, etc., etc., etc.) then the 'Diesel' prefix would merely define the era of those subjects, stories or interests. As such 'Dieselpunk' would be more aptly described as just one more subcategory within this generic Pulp-Diesel grouping.
Is it time to shoot the Pigeons yet??? LOL
