I presume that you've got a separate HD for your movies? If so, an issue of this sort could be caused by a problem with the movie HD - or it could be caused by a lack of resources elsewhere on the computer.
I'd suggest opening Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and looking at the Performance tab when this happens. See if you can tell what component is being hogged as the system slows down.
You can also go to the Processes tab in Task Manager. Then click on the View menu, then on Select Columns, the put a checkmark next to IO Reads, then click OK to exit the dialog. Then watch the CPU, Memory, and IO Reads column for excessive use as the system slows.
