MacWorld says:

iTunes movie rentals are unlikely to appeal to everyone, particularly people who still prefer to own their media as well as others who have no qualms about taking what they can get via BitTorrent. But for those users who are more interested in an easy, straightforward way to download premium movies that can be watched on multiple devices without a return trip to the video store, iTunes rentals will fit the bill. Despite a few opening-day glitches, which Apple is likely to smooth out, the new service is surprisingly robust and easy to use.

Jobs said:

Apple says it plans to add more than 1,000 films by next month; the company will likely continue scrambling to increase its catalog. Apple’s ability to add films quickly will be crucial to its success in this area, because when people decide they want to see something, they’ll search for it where they know it is available — not where it might possibly be in stock.

Reality is very different:

A complete count of the number of movies available on the box on Wednesday was elusive, but appeared to be between 400 and 500. A menu option that showed all movies at once has been removed, and some movies can be found only by searching for words in the title.

Download this utility and install it as a Finder Plugin (copy to ~/Library/Workflows/Applications/Finder/ )

Select some movie files, right click on one of them, and select the workflow from the Automator menu. Quicktime Player will each movie, export it to an iPod-friendly video format, import it into your iTunes Library (and Videos playlist), and play it for you. Next time you sync your video-capable iPod, your movies will be viewable on the iPod!
