The problem with the movies in NFS SE is that the game will use VESA hi-color 320xNNN resolution modes if they are available, but the movies look messed up in those modes. Using machine=svga_et4000 with a VESA driver will prevent the problem because the hi-color modes aren't available, so the game falls back on using a tweaked VGA mode instead.

The attached program launches NFS SE and stops it from using the hi-color modes, so the movies aren't messed up with the default machine=svga_s3 setting in DOSBox; no VESA drivers are needed. Put the program in the game folder and run it instead of the NFS executable.
