I have 1TB of storage. Even if I delete all the movies that are listed under "All My Files" it doesn't seem to be that much. Where can I see what is taking up how much space?

Run Disk Utility. Verify the disk. You might have some orphaned clusters. Nothing to worry about if so... You'd just need to boot into the recovery partition and run the repair procedure in Disk Utility there.

Movies is only taking 200GB and “Other” is taking up 580 GB. But I don’t know what that Other is.

It says it was found corrupt and need to be repaired, so I am repairing it now…

I repaired it but still I don't know what the "Other" is. Is there some sort of app you can download to find out?

Other could well be local Time Machine backups.
There is a thread that explains how to clear them somewhere.

Oh, yes. This will eat up a lot of storage memory. However, it is a "reserve" usage and will be overwritten if need be. I hate it, because it makes it look like you have used up all your memory.

I found four .iso disk images that are about 46.5 GB each. I wonder what it is.

The names are: VWBS-1399 etc (the four numbers are different for each .iso)
