** There's the way the queen [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashes]] people into serving her. She knows magic, so you'd think she'd just cast a spell. Nope. She has this sort of medal with a huge spike on the back, so when she puts the medal on someone, she ''stabs them in the chest with it''. And they become so devoted to her, they don't care! [[spoiler:In the climax, she does this to Will while he's lying on the ground from a knife wound and is too weak to fight back. After she's been killed and the tower collapsed, Will ''still'' gasps out "serve my queen" when asked what to do next.]]

** The spider horse. THE FUCKING SPIDER HORSE. *shudder*

** The spider horse. THE FUCKING SPIDER HORSE. *shudder**shudder* [[spoiler: For those of wanting to scar yourselves: at roughly the midpoint of the film, the Mirror Queen sends an enchanted horse to kidnap a little girl, something it does by spitting webbing at her to ensnare her, then yanking her into the air and [[SwallowedWhole swallowing her whole]]. The fact we see her vanish down its throat by way of a shadow on the wall does '''not''' help. Of course, for added measure, when the heroes catch it, we can see her moving around inside its belly, and we get a shot down its gaping mouth & throat to see her terrified eyes before it carries her off into the woods.]]

** Also, when cranking the brother out of the well, the "ratchet" is reversed. It would never lock to hold its position as it was turned.

* CriticalResearchFailure: "Jack and the Beanstalk" was not written by the Brothers Grimm. It's an old English tale, and not well-known in Germany.

* WhatDoYouMeanItForKids: The original stories have always been NightmareFuel specifically designed to scare the bajeezus out of any kid who hears them. The same thing here. Gilliam, however, has stated that he intended the film for children.
