Tom Cruise Is Going To War With A Setting On Your TV

Tom Cruise breaks silence on the 'soap opera effect' and we couldn't be happier

Now playing: Watch this: Tom Cruise tells you the best way to watch Mission: Impossible. "This is sometimes referred to as the 'soap opera effect'". 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. Although creating new frames in between the 24 or 30 frames per second in video content can be useful for enjoying sports, this effect can change the look of TV and films for the worse and not actually deliver the "smooth" effect its name purports.

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

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

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.

People also loved the Cruise-McQuarrie PSA pairing more than they would have ever thought. In the video, they suggest googling "turn off motion smoothing [your brand of TV here]". Cruise and McQuarrie recommended that consumers do an internet search to find out how to disable motion smoothing on their HDTV sets. According to BBC, part of the reason is because the actor is lacking when it comes to height.

Cruise took time out from shooting Top Gun: Maverick to shoot the short public service announcement and posted a tweet about it.
