Tom Cruise hits out at 'motion smoothing' on high definition TVs

Tom Cruise and Christopher Mc Quarrie – Top Gun Maverick set

In a now-viral Twitter video (see below) Tuesday to mark the DVD and Blu-ray release of "Mission: Impossible - Fallout", the movie star and director Christopher McQuarrie urged viewers to turn off the "video interpolation", or motion-smoothing, function on their high-def TVs.

"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.

It's a matter close to Tom Cruise's heart and to your eyes.

Facebook is accused of using this data to assess "not just how many people had downloaded apps, but how often they used them". Collins also alleged that Facebook took aggressive positions against competitor apps by denying them access to any user data.


In his tweet, Cruise wrote that he was "taking a quick break from filming" - he's now at work on the "Top Gun: Maverick" sequel - to address the subject.

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.

Sometimes known as the "soap opera effect", McQuarrie acknowledged that many people notice something "strange" about the film they're watching with the feature enabled but few can identify the issue specifically without a side-by-side comparison.
