Trying to figure out which discs to pick up with the 5-free promotion. I have no interest in any of the movies from groups 1 and 3. Are any of these movies worthwhile from a demo/show-off-the-system standpoint?

Group 1 (pick 1):

The Guardian
Pearl Harbor
Invincible
Chicken Little

Group 3 (pick 1):

Stealth
RE 2
Underworld Evolution
Stir of Echoes

Based on the Tier list the best-looking titles out of that group would be:

Chicken Little
Pearl Harbor
Stealth

I'm a new PS3 user too and am waiting on my first Blu-Ray disks from Amazon.

stealth is probably a better demo, but underworld evo is a much better movie. and unless u're female, you'll appreciate underworld:e in HD much more than Stealth.

Jessica Biel Vs Kate. Underworld is a much better movie. Stealth is just terrible.

I'd pick up Pearl Harbor and Underworld if I was going for a mix of demo and something you can sit through. Purely demo only, Chicken Little and Stealth.

For Sony, I'd get Underworld. Buena Vista, I've only seen Pearl Harbor, but the kids all say Chicken Little is the better package (movie and reference). Your call on that one!

I finally watched Pearl Harbor on BD yesterday and from what I had remembered from watching it in theaters it wasn't that good, but I actually found myself into the movie. It took a while to get going but if you have a nice audio system the 45 min scene of bombing and gun fire will knock you off your feet.

And def underworld for the 2nd movie. Good movie made better by Kate :-)

Home Theater, 700 HP cars, golf, and snow skiing are all expensive habits for a 24 year old!
