So the "Evangelion Remake" is pretty much the series compressed into 4 movies? The animation looks really good, though i'm also hoping they do some improvements to the way the story is told.

According to something else there's a few changes too though. Different looking symbols, some thing(s) happening sooner, a new character, and such. Though I did read those on wikipedia.

Rating sounds good, from what you mentioned Iri. I'm not going to read any reviews until I've seen it myself though.
