It's not straight mecha, but RahXephon is one of the better shows I've seen in the past decade, and you can get the movie, which neatly summarizes the events in the TV series, with additional footage even.

I, on the other hand, feel the complete opposite. I don't think the OVA could at all match the intensity of the series.

It's the only anime I've seen one half of an episode of and knew I had to go and get them all religiously as they came out. The dub is wonderfully done and so is the musical track. To top it all off it has a very good story line.
I'm going to second this recommendation. Last Exile seems to be one of those shows that comes along once in a great while, that just transcends everything else around it.
Oh and for sheer tear-jerkery, I'd recommend SaiKano (She, The Ultimate Weapon.) If you don't cry watching this, you are a heartless, inhuman monster.
