Here is a good explanation of why there's black bars at the top and bottom of some widescreen movies, yet they are still better than pan & scan (fullscreen). Sidney Pollack, the director, is doing the explaining. I think I'll make it a sticky, so it's always an easy access to it.

Thanks for this information. I always thought that Pan & Scan is better than Widescreen. I found a video in Youtube where a comparison is made between pan & scan and widescreen. This video sure made a lot of difference.
Funny enough I don't even notice the black bars on the screen once I am about five minutes into a movie. However as soon as someone mentions them they come right back into view! I'm going to watch the video later as I can't play sound right now,
