Default Question regarding Sammy 1080p 5084 and Ps3 BR set up

Equipment:
Samsung 50" FPT5084
BR player- Ps3

Was simply wondering if any of the gear heads here could help me out.
I was watching Spidey 3 this weekend on BR (Incredible) and was still getting the black bars above and below.
I thought having a widescreen plasma that I would no longer have the black bars. Did I possibly do something wrong in my settings(Ps3 or Sammy??)

I know depending on the set there are certain screen adjustments I can make but clearly
16:9 / Zoom 1 / Zoom2 and Just Scan does not seem to eliminate them when playing the BR.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

SungofSam

The OAR of the film is probably one that is wider than that of your "widescreen" TV. Just because you have a widescreen TV does not mean you will not get the black bars still. Someone with better technical knowledge can probably give you a more technical explanation but bottom line is you will still get black bars on certain movies even with a widescreen TV.

oh cmon. are you seriuos?
your tv aspect ratio is closer to 1.85, so when you'll watch movies that have 2.35 OAR (it's always written on cover) you'll get two black bars. it's ok. it's just how director wanted it.

Cool . I thought it might have something to do with the aspect Ratio but I didn't want to make any assumptions.
