If you were to watch a 1.78:1 movie (list), then you would have no black bars, horizontal or vertical.
Most widescreen movies are filmed in 1.85:1, and 2.35:1. Since these are wider than the 1.78:1 format, you'll still get black bars on top and bottom.
HERE is a pretty comprehensive list of DVD aspect ratios.
And yes, V for Vendetta and Peter Jackson's King Kong are among the "widest" DVDs, at 2.35:1...
Sorry to say but after the years of the widescreen TV a lot of producers decided to film in widescreen or whatever.
Most theatrical movies have been filmed in widescreen WAY before any widescreen televisions were available. The original (1976) King Kong movie was ALSO filmed in 2.35:1...

edit: took a quick look and seems the list is for regular DVD movies. Im trying to find any decent films worth watching in HD in a nice 16x9 format. Unless the list lists HD movies which I dont think it does because im not finding king kong under the 2.35:1 section.
