"A Clockwork Orange" has blackbars on the left and right, not the top and bottom.

With a 16x9 HDTV, that gives you a screen ratio of 1.78:1. With a standard 4x3 TV, the ratio is 1.33:1. Movies are filmed in various screen ratios.
Alot of them are filmed in 1.85:1 which is close enough to a 16x9 screen that they can stretch it enough to fill the whole screen.
On the other hand, alot of movies are filmed in 2.35:1 (even 2.40:1) - it is an even wider screen, which will create black bars on the top and bottom on a 16x9 HDTV. You will lose alot of the viewing area (on the sides) if you have it cropped in order to fill the whole screen.

Other half hates it and adjusts the picture on the tv from Wide Screen to Cinema and that gets rid of it but I think the picture then loses some of its sharpness.
Maybe its my eyes!

No black bars appeared...

I just don't see the point in paying for a good TV then watching a badly distorted picture.
|Quoting RIHNOSAUR (Reply 13):|
you loose (in absolute terms) lines on your screen if you want to not loose quality. And that is my pet peeve, that I payed for those darn 1080 lines..so its annoying to not use them all!!!
