Not really - most of my movie files are about the same size (700Mb).
I tried some other file managers to see if they fare any better. Most of them don't, but ROX-Filer provides the RIFF (little-endian) data: dimensions, codecs, frame rate, mono/stereo, and sampling rate - everything except the duration. The "file" CLI application also gives these RIFF data.
I found in synaptic another CLI application called Extract which additionally gives the duration (in milliseconds). There is also AVInfo, which gives the duration in normal style.
