Neon Genesis Evangelion, the ending, (last 4 to 5 episodes, movie is counted as 2 episodes)

i didn't get it, i don't know who won, if humanity is surviving or not (it seems as if everyone dies, yet... 5 seconds later humans are fighting?), or if the ending was mostly part of Shinji's dreams and illusions :s and what was the giant Rei all about???? also the short relapses made me schizophrenic -_-

help me sort it out please, sort out the ending a bit for me maybe a chronological order of most important events?
