All the movie formats..including dvd's..the wont work, totem returns an error message stating that the file is invalid when it really isnt and doesnt play the video

What types of movies?  Totem works fine for me for almost everything. 
The ocassional windows media 9 or 10 file fails to play for me of
course, but that's a codec (licensing) issue and not Totem.

Reading this for some issues with certain codecs is good:

You may also check to see if you have installed a handful of the
gstreamer0.8-* packages for various plugins and codecs.
