Well, then - most probably - it could be a codec is missing?
The information ".rar-movies" only means that the movie-file is "rarred"/compressed/zipped/archived and it doesn't (on its own) conclusively tell what possible codec is needed. What kind of movie-file is inside the archive?
Did you - at installation - allow BS.Player to install codecs/filters locally (i.e. for BS.Player's own 'internal' use only, so not interfering with others)?
If not, you can still do this by going to BS.Player's installation folder and running "bspcodecdl.exe" from there.
(http://forum.bsplayer.com/bug-reports-codecs/2939-list-codecs-optional-if-bs-player-codec-manager-used.html#post8355)
Further, maybe it's even a better idea to first find out what codec it concerns for the file(s) under consideration?
In this connection please read item (3) of my Help2Help-post (maybe you have to unrar the file first for the utilities suggested there).

Very first line of item (3) of my Help2Help-post

... make sure to include in your post the type of the (video)file, in which connection it is important to know that just mentioning that it is an .avi-file doesn't really help.

Default Request to Windows7 users

Can any Windows7 user please share its experiences and confirm (or deny) this issue concerning .rar moviefiles?

I am using BSplayer on Windows 7 for months and I had that problem with early win 7 builds. I solved that by using "compability mode". Using Vista Compability can open Rar compressed movie files. Microsoft fixed that issue ; so using 7077 or 7100 builds are the best ways to use Bsplayer.
