Am I doing something wrong with my TV or DVD Player?

I just got a 32" Samsung LCD TV, and hooked it up to my Surround Sound/DVD player. Its connected by a HDMI cable, and when I play some movies, I'll get maybe a 6-8" portion in the middle playing, with black bars on the top and bottom. I'm not really sure if its suppose to do that, but it seems kind of pointless to get a bigger TV to have these black bars. My roommates 50" doesn't do this, but he watches blue rays mostly.

I've tried a bunch of different things but can't rid of them.. Any ideas?
