ensure that you have drm (direct rendering) enabled for your video card.

as for movies check out xine and / or mplayer

What graphics card are you using?

You must make sure that you have set up 3d-acceleration correctly..
This is mainly done in the file /etc/X11/XF86config
(There are also some graphical tools that are supposed to help you making changes to your configuration - you may try these as well)

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

after you've started X windows type in a terminal
'glxinfo | grep -i direct'

if it comes back with
Direct Rendering: yes

then you're fine else you'll have to fiddle with it.

For most movies you need /usr/lib/win32 - I don't think that comes with a default RH installation - check at http://www.mplayerhq.hu and download the win32 codecs.
