You can use whichever DVD writable format your DVD writer supports. 

Generally speaking DVD-R discs are more widely supported on consumer
DVD players.

For more information of the competing DVD formats, check out the
following website: it outlines the details
of the formats and the advantages and disadvantages of each. The same
site also has guides for nearly everything you should need to know to
do what you want.

Of course, copying movies is generally an infringement of copyright.
It's a good idea to find out what is and is not allowed where you are.

Hope this helps.
