Those top and bottom black bars in your movie. Movies with those bars are said to be in "letterbox" mode. That exists simply to give 16:9 video more height so it can fit properly on a 4:3 screen. And if it's anything like imovie or idvd you can just select the output ratio of your video as a finished product. Just make sure you have that set to 16:9 and not 4:3. And that you have letterboxing mode turned off.
