Tom Cruise Surprise Releases Late Contender for Film of the Year

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. Viewers have also complained that the action looks "too real" and excessively sharp.

"It takes the cinematic look out of any image and makes it look like soap opera shot on a cheap video camera", wrote American director Reed Morano, who started a petition calling for TV makers to turn the setting off.

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. "Then I see the best television money can buy with a feature that inadvertently makes even the biggest budget productions look like they were shot for the lowest possible budget".

"If you own a modern high-definition television, there's a good chance you're not watching movies the way the filmmakers intended", McQuarrie said. "Most HD TVs come with this feature already on, by default".

On most TVs, motion smoothing controls are under advanced picture settings, and each manufacturer has a different name for it.

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. Cruise and McQuarrie recommended that consumers do an internet search to find out how to disable motion smoothing on their HDTV sets. In the original film he plays a fighter pilot trying to secure the top pilot spot and win the heart of his flight instructor, Charlotte Blackwood, played by actress Kelly McGillis.
