The iPad are all *approximately* the same weight and size. It's up to you to decide how much storage space you need (16, 32 or 64 gigabytes). I would also recommend that you go to a nearby tech store like Best Buy and handle the iPad to get a feel for it.

You can get by with 16gb, but I'd def. recommend 32GB or more.
In regards to thickness/weight I'd say that the difference is so small it's neglible. Try it out for yourself and see if those extra 100 grams make a difference for you.
BUT here is the really hard question: A 32 gb iPad2 or a 16gb ipad3?!? I'm not sure, lol, some days I'd def go for the first one, some days the other...

I'll have to admit the space on my ipad was used for kid stuff a lot. If you don't have that to worry about?
Of course you can load it up with movies but will you truly need them on there to watch? There's some apps on my ipad I opened like once and never used again. Same with movies that were never watched but was "nice" to have on there.
I'd start with the lowest one. Try it out. You have time to return it if you feel it's not enough space. Look at apps that can stream. Use apps like dropbox.

The one thing I do often on my iPad is watch Netflix so there is no need for me to load any movies on it. Any DVDs I get, I watch on my home theatre system. I also watch a lot of sports on my iPad via the WatchESPN app, especially college football because oftentimes I am able to watch the U when their game is not being televised in my region. So you see, I can enjoy watching videos without the need to purchase a 32 or 64 GB device.

I think it took me about a week to fill up my 16gb, lol, but I'd still say start out with 16 if you're not sure.
Why? Its an iPad! Keeps the value so well, that if you run out of space after a month or two, you can sell it for pretty much the same you spent on it (minus sales tax and 20-30$) and get a bigger one.
That's the way I would do it, if I wasn't sure what my needs are...

Since the iPad 3 and developers making apps take advantage of the retina display, 32GB is a must. I bought a 16B and quickly returned it since my apps/movies/music ate up almost the entire 16GB. 32 is is a nice middle ground.
