Tom Cruise Wants You To Fix Your TV Settings

Watch Tom Cruise's Impassioned PSA About the Dangers of Motion Smoothing

It's a matter close to Tom Cruise's heart and to your eyes. Tom Cruise also explains that, rather annoyingly, manufacturers don't make it particularly easy for owners to disable this feature, should they so choose. Often referred to as the Soap Opera Effect, the feature removes motion blur and makes film look like video, which is not how the filmmakers intended Mission: Impossible Fallout to look.

Tom Cruise has urged everyone to turn off a default setting on their high definition (HD) TVs to improve the experience of watching films at home. The message was timed to the release of Paramount's "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" on Blu-Ray on Tuesday.

"If you own a modern high-definition television there's a good chance you're not watching movies the way film-makers intended, and the ability for you to do so is not simple for you to access", McQuarrie added.

The motion smoothing setting is present in almost all TVs incorporating HD and 4K resolution support and is most often left on by default by manufacturers - creating what some lament as the "soap opera" effect.

Huawei's First Handset With Display Camera Hole Coming On Dec. 17
The much anticipated Huawei Mate 20 Pro is now available for purchase in India from today exclusively for Amazon Prime members . As we can clearly see, this phone ditches the notch, replacing it with a display cutout for the front-facing camera .

In a passionate video posted to Twitter, the "Mission Impossible" actor appeared alongside screenwriter, director and producer Christopher McQuarrie to explain the feature.

Broadcasters have started to film sport at higher frame-rates, with Premier League matches shot at up to 50 frames per second.

But many in the film industry hate it, however, as it can degrade the image quality of the original film, and alter colouring.

Cruise and McQuarrie acknowledge that it can be hard to navigate how to change the setting, so they're working with manufacturers to make it easier out of the gate.
