In opposite to their respective TV versions the two concluding movies of Evangelion and Ideon are similar in theme as well as imagery and even in music. The Ideon movie clearly inspired the epic conclusion of Evangelion. 
Mindblowingly epic and beautifully tragic movies. If Tomino had the chance to make a sci-fi epic back in the day without having to worry about mech's, Queen Millennia may have been one of the results. The progression of the movie does feel similar to his style, so many things pile up to make an explosive finale. You do need to get through the Ideon series for Be Invoked, though that's probably not the case with the Queen Millennia movie, which is more than likely a redux on the series (like GE999 vs the GE999 movie). Epic sci-fi mastery right here.
