Figure about 4.5 to 9 Gig per movie, on a 1Tb drive you can fit at least 100 movies

No, you will not need that much space. You should be storing them in a compressed format (such as H.264) which means they should take up about 700 MB each.

Total Space needed:
0.7 GB * 700 = 490 GB

I would recommend going with at least a 750 GB hard drive to store your movies.
