iMovie leads naturally into final cut express which is the entry level version of final cut pro - there is virtually nothing you can't do on the express platform, certainly for web publication and it's only about $199 as opposed to $999 for VS's pick (which includes a shed load of pro gear you won't need unless you are making a feature film commissioned by theBBC!!)
iMovie is cool but is it professionally adequate? The lines are definitely grayer between pro and consumer these days. I did read that final cut express isn't worth the money in that you actually get more functionality out of iMovie.
