Viewers have also complained that the action looks "too real" and excessively sharp. The something in question is regarding TV settings, more specifically the default settings on modern TVs that will leave your lovely movies and TV shows looking like a low quality soap opera.

Tom Cruise has gone to war with a lot of things in his career, but the latest is something of a surprise: it's a setting on modern TVs that makes films look a bit rubbish.

They continued to share the fact that Hollywood is working with TV manufacturers to make motion smoothing easier to turn off. But until then, Cruise and McQuarrie say, Google how to turn of "motion smoothing" on whatever brand of TV you have.

Appearing with Mission: Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie, he said: 'The unfortunate side-effect is that [motion blurring] makes most videos look like they were shot on high-speed video rather than film.


Something is keeping movie star Tom Cruise up at night: motion smoothing.

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".

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".

In the meantime, the pair recommends a quick internet search to find step-by-step instructions on how to disable the setting. On an LG TV, motion smoothing takes on the name TruMotion and can be found under picture options in the menu. One place you won't see Cruise anymore is in a Jack Reacher movie or television series. In this movie, Cruise reprises his role as Maverick from the 1986 film Top Gun.
