Snow White and the Huntsman

Saw Snow White and the Huntsman on Thursday.  (Didn't write before now because I got about 5 hours of sleep Wednesday night and 4 Thursday, and was just too dead Friday to do anything.)  Seemed like a decent fairy tale.  There were dwarves in the movie but they definitely weren't the Disney ones.  Some pretty good effects.  Some dark scenes, some pretty scary images, definitely not a movie for kids.  No sex, and very little gore (though plenty of violence), so no R rating.  Some bits seemed pretty authentic and realistic, and some bits were pretty jarring.  People going to war in court finery is silly enough, but coming out of the battle with only token dishevelment is silly.  It ended up being a pretty good movie, but in so many places it seemed like it was frustratingly just short of being really great.
