Widescreen DVD != 16:9

So.. I got Mission Impossible today from NetFlix and started watching it. At start up it asked if I wanted Widescreen or Letterbox. Having a laptop with 16:10 — Widescreen it was. But.. It wasnt. It turns out it was 16:9 shrunk down to fit the letter box width. Yes! I want to watch a DVD on 1/4 of my 15” laptop screen — Please! Pick me.

Sigh. Where do they think up this shit?
