Going Blu-Ray and need your help deciding which movies to watch

Alright guys, I've decided to give Blu-Ray a try. After being HD-DVD exclusive since July, I see Blu-Ray has improved alot since its initial release, there are some titles I cannot resist from exclusive Blu-Ray studios and frankly, I'm sick of not being able to enjoy any movie I want in high definition. On top of all that, I have customers at my store telling me how they love their Panasonic or Sony Blu-Ray players and the movies they watch LOL. So when I get the next batch of Panasonic Blu-Ray players (because Panasonic is my favourite brand and I have no use for 1080p/24 at the moment), I am going to grab one for myself. I need your help in determining which three Blu-Ray movies are best to watch for myself to be wowed immediately when I receive the player, in video AND sound. Please pick from the following list: Kingdom of Heaven: DC Enemy of the State X-Men: The Last Stand Black Hawk Down Tears of the Sun Total Recall The Punisher Terminator 2: Judgment Day Lord of War House of Flying Daggers The Terminator Crash The Fifth Element Thanks for everyones input in advance!

Black Hawk Down Kingdom of Heaven X3

Definitely not 'The Fifth Element', the transfer is a PoS (my upscaled SuperBit version blows away the BD version.)

ENEMY OF THE STATE looks superb. TEARS OF THE SUN got great reviews, but I don't personally have it.

Black Hawk Down Enemy Of The State Kingdom Of Heaven All look terrific but BHD just blew me away with it's attention to detail!

And all of the Warner Brothers classic releases currently in HD-DVD and coming soon to BD. Good viewing.

Harminder, I've read some really good things about Kingdom of Heaven. Enjoy!

Crank is reference quality.

I can personally vouch for X-Men 3, and I've also heard a lot of good things about KOH and Black Hawk Down. I have those two, but haven't gotten around to watching them yet.

Kingdom of Heaven: DC Enemy of the State X-Men: The Last Stand Black Hawk Down Tears of the Sun You gotta love those uncompressed/lossless tracks (48/24 to boost on the first 3). Those are reference in my book, the others don't look or sound so well, even though they are all great movies for me.
Support the use of seamless branching on Sony BDs to always present the original theatrical cut along with the extended/alternate versions

It's not on your original list, but I watched THE LAST SAMURAI today on BD, and the video quality is superb, every bit as three dimensional as the best HD I've seen.
