Tom Cruise is Worried You're Watching Movies at Home Wrong

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

Tom Cruise has stepped up the fight against motion smoothing.

But high-definition widescreen TVs could be ruining your movie nights, according to one of Hollywood's biggest stars. 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.

They wanted to inform audiences that when enjoying Mission: Impossible - Fallout, as well as other action films, home TVs are set in such a way that detracts from the filmmakers original intent. While most movies are shot in 24 frames per second, motion smoothing works to insert extra frames between the ones that have been shot to, as the name suggests, smooth the motion across the screen.

Cruise and McQuarrie, speaking from the set of "Top Gun: Maverick", said that the so-called "soap opera effect" can make most movies "look like they were shot on high-speed video rather than film" and they advised users how to navigate their TV controls and turn the feature off.

Your TV's motion smoothing setting is probably buried somewhere in its video menu.

McQuarrie added, "If you own a modern high-definition television, there's a good chance you're not watching movies the way the filmmakers intended".

As McQuarrie puts it, "without a side-by-side comparison, many people can't quite put their finger on why the movie they're watching looks unusual".

But many in the film industry hate it, however, as it can degrade the image quality of the original film, and alter colouring. Those who watch a lot of live sports might want to take note of where it is located, so they can find it next time their team plays.
