Aspect Ratio question

Got a clips on DVD, I need to edit in iMovie and put on U tube.
When i play the clips From DVD using VLC software, the clips are slightly 'stretched' (vertical wise). But the Aspect Ratio for the clips are 16:9 (this is stated on the clip at beginning with the countdown clock, it's done by pro TV company). When I select Aspect Ratio in VLC (Video/Aspect Ratio/16:9) the clips playback in right ratio.... within VLC.
But, when I load the clips into iMovie.... the clips are still strecthed = not 16:9! and some captions at top of screen of clip are cut / missing!
Is there a way to fix this? Is there a conversion tool to do this? Is there a tool in iMovie (cant find anything). I'v egot Handbrake and VLC.

My guess is that it has to do with the presets you are using. I'm not familiar with VLC, but there is a nice blog post from Jeff regarding pixel aspect ratio. It may be of help to you.
