Here is how to disable intro movies for Xcom
Some advice for this is to overwrite the existing movie files with blank ones. This is a bad idea because they will get updated when the game gets patched, making you waste bandwidth. Instead do this
Goto My Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\Config
Make a copy of XcomEngine.ini
Find line contaning "StartupMovies"
Delete the 4 lines that contain this
No more intro movies. This will survive future game updates as well as reinstalls of the game.
Thank you very much, Satoru.
Alternatively, add the lines:

Thanks for this one, way to lazy and clumsy to figure this one out myself.
The change has shortened the start-up of the game from 2-3 mins to about 2-3 sec (No exaggeration I'm running SSD), and since restart is the only way to load during enemy turn this made my day.
+1 Internets to you my good man
