Do you REALLY want to either a) blow the film up so you're only seeing about a third of it (but it fills the screen) or b) stretch the film so everyone looks fat? Because those are your options.

The black bars are telling you that you are seeing the ENTIRE picture area of the film. Different films were shot in different formats, and there's nothing you can do about that other than the two options I mentioned above, both of which are (IMO) crimes against cinema.

My advice: don't worry about the black bars. Focus on the movie.
