In your base game directory (something like /Program Files/EA GAMES/Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour/) and files a folder named Data. Open it and go into English/Movies/. Allt the game's movies are in there. To disable them, simply rename the movie file (they're all .bik movies, BTW). I did this to the EA Games logo, since you can't skip it otherwise.

From what I remember you can't stop the movies at the beginning of each mission. You can get rid of the briefing on the loading screen know (this does speed up loading times a lot). It's in the Command.INI file, just remove all the 'IntroMovie USACampaign1' type comments under each mission block. You even get a better background...
