* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "Breath of Life" by Music/FlorenceAndTheMachine.
* EvilIsCool[=/=]EvilIsSexy: Queen Ravenna.
* FanPreferredCouple: Most fans preferred the Snow White/Huntsman pairing as opposed to Snow White/William.
* HarsherInHindsight or HilariousInHindsight: Now that it's public knowledge that Kristen Stewart (playing the ''title role'') and Rupert Sanders (director) had an affair, it makes the movie either more watchable or cringeworthy depending on your tastes. Let's just say lines about Snow White having the "fairest blood" or being "pure" are full of retroactive irony. One wonders what the DVD commentary - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhXb_aTtH0w not this one]][[note]]unlike producer Joe Roth, Rupert Sanders is on the real commentary track[[/note]] - would have in store...
** Not to mention the fact that one of the fairytale's themes is that of an older woman being supplanted by a younger beauty. Now consider the fact that Snow White's mother was played by the director's real-life wife...
* JustHereForGodzilla: After a fashion, for those who may watch for the Queen, the Huntsman, the dark fantasy, the action scenes, etc. - with Snow White low on the list of priorities. It's telling that Snow White isn't even FEATURED in some of the posters...
** Just Here for Thor with a Scottish Accent.
* MoralEventHorizon: The wicked queen crosses it when she [[spoiler:poisons Snow White with the poison apple]].
** She could've easily crossed that in the beginning by murdering Snow White's father.
** Her brother Finn is even worse. He seems to cross the line with his AttemptedRape of Snow White, but later we discover he crossed it a long time ago.
* {{Narm}}:
** Every other line uttered by [[LargeHam the Queen]].
** The rousing speech that Snow White does can come off as this, though...
*** NarmCharm: ...others found her speech to be this.
* OneSceneWonder: Early on, one of the resistance fighters and his son are captured and brought before the Queen. The father stays silent and ignores the Queen's taunting, but the son [[spoiler:grabs a dagger and ''stabs her in the stomach.'' Granted, it doesn't kill her but you have to admire his spirit.]]
* OvershadowedByControversy: The stigma of Kristen Stewart's fling/affair with the (married) director will likely follow this movie forever now.
* [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]: Some who haven't seen KristenStewart outside of Film/{{Twilight}} are getting this reaction. Others feel the [[DullSurprise complete opposite]].
* SoOkayItsAverage: The critical reviews appear to be leaning between SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome and the exact opposite. The fan reaction, meanwhile, has been more in the middle.
* {{Squick}}: Good Lord, there are examples everywhere. The Queen's creepy relationship with her brother, the Queen's creepy relationship with Snow White, the scene where she eats the raw hearts of dead birds, the scene after she [[spoiler: poisons Snow White and all her disgusting dead crows slowly ooze together to form her body.]] By far, the creepiest moment has to be [[spoiler: when the Queen tricks Snow White into eating a poisoned apple by pretending to be William and ''allowing Snow White to kiss her.'' Even if you claim FoeYay, it's downright gross.]]
** A deleted scene seen in promotional videos of the film show the Queen apparently having an orgasm in her milk bath. The milk that's flowing outside the castle to the courtyard for the peasants to collect and drink...
*** The fact that she's bathing in it is already pretty squicky.
**** AluminumChristmasTrees: Milk baths were a common beauty treatment.
* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Special mention goes to the dark forest, the glass soldiers, and the dwarves.
* WTHCastingAgency: Many people are wondering at the movie making KristenStewart out to be prettier than Creator/CharlizeTheron, let alone "the fairest of them all".
** Lampshaded by [[Series/TheColbertReport Stephen Colbert]] in his interview with Theron.
*** For that matter, this is how most people (such as genuine dwarf Warwick Davis) felt about the dwarves being played by normal actors digitally imposed to be short, as opposed to casting real short actors for the roles.
