Default Good Reference/Demo quality disc?

I need a disc that really showcase the best that Blu ray PQ has to offer. I want to make my first purchase a good one. And I also want to see what the differences are in PQ compared to HD DVD with my own eyes. Thanks!

1) Crank
2) Underworld Evolution (Excellent for details and sharpness, not much in the Color department).
3) Corpse Bride (Simply 3D)

Don't overlook Flyboys. Amazing detail; an almost flawless transfer, imo (A few contrast issues here and there) and a breathtaking DTS-HD MA soundtrack to boot.
