you can use an xbox 360 and media centre on your laptop

the best way would be a hdmi cable, but not everyone has a port for that on their laptop.
probably the easiest is to use your tv as a monitor, (regular monitor cable- most laptops have this port) you'd also need an audio in/ out for the sound to come out of the tv speakers.

Do you want to see the screen on your laptop or watch files off of your laptop?

Budget - Wdtv live
If you're happy with 720p - Apple tv running xbmc
Correct - revo running xbmc

Bear in mind if you're using wireless you won't be streaming incredibly high quality videos easily

Just put your films on a memory stick and plug it in your tv

Memory stick doesnt have wires and its simple

Cheapest method VGA cable from laptop to tv and an audio cable.

If you want a tidy setup WDTV live.

You could also look into a nas to store your files, then homeplugs/hidden wires and a Wdtv would be a decent set up.

However if you're watching 1 movie a month then it might not be worth the outlay
