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

Viewers have also complained that the action looks "too real" and excessively sharp. Motion smoothing, once called "liquid diarrhea" by Rian Johnson (director of Brick, Looper, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi), is a setting on many televisions meant to reduce the blur created when an object is in motion.

But Cruise says that when it is applied to big-budget movies, it makes them "look like they were shot on high-speed video". 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.

As Fallout hits Blu-ray and DVD this week, the pair have released a short clip warning about the "motion smoothing" interpolation setting that tends to be automatically activated on lots of HD TVs. Cruise and McQuarrie recommended that consumers do an internet search to find out how to disable motion smoothing on their HDTV sets.

"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.

It means the average viewer finds it too hard to turn off - and many realise something looks odd without being able to pinpoint what it is.

The actor appeared in a video posted to Twitter, alongside director Christopher McQuarrie, warning of the impact of "video interpolation" or "motion smoothing", a technique used to smooth moving images on modern televisions - most commonly used to improve the viewing of sport. 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.
