Are these movies any good?
 
THese are Blu-ray movies i was considering getting, but not sure if they were must have great titles or not:

Superman returns (saw the SD version. Not sure if its a movie you can watch again and again.)

The Departed (again, saw it in SD, but not sure if I would want to watch it again in HD)

Underworld: Evolution

Casino Royale (wasnt really into james bond before, but was thinking of giving this one a shot)

Ghost Rider

Black Hawk Down

AVP: Alein vs Predator (OMG i was waiting for this movie for like 8 years.)

Are any of these movies just rental quality and not worth purchasing. Which ones are worth the purchase?

Casino Royale is worth a purchase imo. Ghost Rider is a great rental. I'm not too much into any of the others, I'm sure someone else might have a different opinion.

I own Superman Returns, Casino Royale, U:Ev, and AVP. Pretty happy with all of them in terms of transfer quality. I already liked the films but that's really just your taste. I'd probably rate them against each other like this in terms of PQ/AQ (best first):

Casino
U:Ev
Superman
AVP

but none of these are bad.

Ye, theyre all pretty good, but please cross out Ghost Rider, its a HORRIBLE film (but PQ seems to be good) , i am just rating them on the "Movie Itself", i only have 1 BD, and The Departed and BHD are EXCELLENT films, must haves

I have Casino Royale (not Casino :p) on DVD and saw it a few days ago, i didnt find the movie intresting, I will re-watch it soon and i may change my mind

The quality of the film is really up to you. But if you're asking for PQ purposes, I think it would look something like this:

Ghost Rider
Black Hawk Down
The Departed
Casino Royale
Underworld: Evolution
AVP
Superman Returns


The last two, I would put closer to equal rather than 'one looking better than the other.' Hope this helps. :)

Black Hawk Down and The Departed are good bets.

Casino Royale is awesome. I could understand your reluctance with it after the abysmal crap that was the Pierce Brosnan Bond films. Personally, I'm not a fan of most of the Bond movies before Brosnan either. Think of Casino Royale vs. the Brosnan films like Batman Begins vs. Batman & Robin and you get the idea.
Definitely don't buy Ghost Rider. I cannot stress this enough. Horrible, just horrible.
Anyway, that my two cents, but everyone has a different opinion on movies. I would say if it's a movie you doubt you would want to watch again and again, don't buy it. I used to buy DVDs like candy and regret the money I've lost on many of them; I'm not going to make the same mistake with Blu-Ray, especially since you're paying more money for each title.
