So it turns out that you can't re-download movies. That really sucks and I wonder why not movies but you can with TV shows.

I got it now. I read a bit more and realized there were 4 files (.itl, .xml, and a couple of others) which also needed to be copies. Also, it expected it under an iTunes Media directory. Once I did this it is all there including playlists and purchased music.

I should have taken a closer look at how Apple organizes their stuff before I copied. Now I understand it. Given that I am changing the structure of the filesystem between the computers, it did a pretty good job adapting to it once I understood how it organizes its files. Also have my apps there now.
In 2011 I had it figured out. Now it's 2018 and I got to figure it out again. LOL

New computer. Nice and fast. And no more blue screens.
