Default Black borders in HD-DVDs

Hi, I'm using a 24" Dell LCD to watch HD movies (connected to PC). I believe all movies will have a slight black border on the top and bottom due to the monitor having 1200 lines and HD being 1080 lines...

But, while some HD movies have this small border top and bottom, I was watching Tokyo drift last night and the top and bottom black borders are massive. Am I doing something wrong or is it supposed to be like this?

If this is correct, is there any way I can tell in advance if a movie is going to look like this before I buy it?
