- Crowning Music of Awesome: The score by Jerry Goldsmith. The parts with Japanese instruments and pentatonic motifs especially add a lot to that side of the film.
- Vindicated by Cable / Vindicated by History Buffs: It was a box-office flop in the U.S. and for the most part, critics didn't like it. But it did pretty well in Japan (eventually breaking even), the expensive special effects shots were convincing enough to be re-used for over a decade, and if you need historical accuracy more than you need character-driven drama in a film, this is a good go-to.
- Visual Effects of Awesome: So... now that we've listed this trope, guess which Academy Award it did get?
