Looks like none of these will rip a DVD, for use in iMovie without buying another program and this one here

Handbreak will do it for free. I've used it in the past to extract DVD video for use in iMovie.

The ripping is not the problem, MacTheRipper and other free ripping apps should do that for you.
The transcoding (or "converting") is the problem, as iMovie does not seem to take every .mp4 file (due to different codec settings maybe), thus HandBrake might be comme ci, comme ša with its results.
The method I linked to works, though you need some MPEG-2 plugin for MPEG Streamclip of course. Maybe there are ways around this, for example, rip and transcode via HandBrake and one of its presets, then try the .mp4 file in iMovie, if that files does not work, use MPEG Streamclip to transcode to a .mov file using the Apple Intermediate Codec, as shown in the guides I linked to (just replace the video DVD as source with the .mp4, settings stay the same).

You could also use the Advanced Search or MRoogle to find similar threads, as this has been asked a lot, quite a lot, thus the guides I made some years ago.

From my experience, that is what you have to do, get it in the AIC.

Yep, and it is an easy procedure, but I guess the 20 USD for the MPEG-2 plugin might put people off.

Could be right. It's been a long time since I have done any of that work. Didn't remember having to buy a plugin for it.

If you had Final Cut Studio (pre X) installed, you did not have to, but many people using iMovie do not have FCS installed, and thus need to purchase the MPEG-2 plugin or get it via other means.
