There's a program called DVDxDV that takes the compressed MPEG-2 files on a "movie" DVD (by which I mean a personal one such as the OP describes, doesn't work with commercial DVDs) and converts the contents to DV, one of iMovie's native formats for editing. The resulting file is HUGE but can be re-edited with minimal quality loss (given that the compression came from the original DVD-making process and must be re-done when you re-burn it after editing).
