I'm pretty sure ffx-2 uses 'point list' fmvs and they just take a lot more cpu power to render then a conventional ps2 movie since its done in points (this is also why upscaling doesn't work well with these movies), Dirge of Cerberus is another game that uses this format.
The mtvu hack can sorta help on these movies (if you have a quad cpu) you can get about 15~+fps increase. other then that there isn't much you can do to truly speed them up.
You could mess with the EE and VU cycle rate sliders in speed hacks but usually setting them to anything higher then 1 will start to break the movie or audio even worse, however if you are just on the borderline of 60fps and only need a few more fps then it's a potential fix.

well, to be fair, if you look at the CPU benchmark, you can see that most of the sandy bridge desktops (and laptops) have already begun to run these FMV scenes at 60fps in software mode so I reckon by ivy bridge or Haswell it shouldn't be a massive issue.

And as noted: The MTVU speed hack would allow even slower machines to run this fast enough.
