Everyone is digging Tom Cruise’s PSA about motion smoothing

That's the motion blurring effect on your television set that makes sports look good but leaves movies looking like soap operas or Canadian television shows.

We can hope. In the meantime, your mission is clear: Google how to turn off the motion smoothing or interpolation on your TV and turn it off before you watch any more films on it. Listen to the movie people on this - they know of what they speak.

Anyway, because both Cruise and McQuarrie are just so passionate about this issue, they took a break from filming "Top Gun: Maverick" to tell you that if you do happen to watch "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" - which, hey Cruise starred in and McQuarrie directed - that you should dig into your television settings and turn off this feature. This is decidedly not what the filmmaker intended, and Cruise and McQuarrie want to make sure it doesn't impact any home viewings of Mission: Impossible - Fallout on Blu-ray. Cruise and McQuarrie spoke of the dangers of motion smoothing, particularly for fans interested in seeing movies as the filmmakers intended, and provided a quick lesson about how to change the settings on your TV to disable the built-in feature.

The video sent ripples through Hollywood, with many praising Cruise and McQuarrie for their efforts.

Cruise is correct. Motion smoothing-often referred to as the "soap opera effect"-is meant to "reduce motion blur in sporting events and other high definition programs", and according to McQuarrie, goes by a number of different names".
