TV & FILM

I’m taking a quick break from filming to tell you the best way to watch Mission: Impossible Fallout (or any movie you love) at home. pic.twitter.com/oW2eTm1IUA

There are few things in this world as aggravating to me as going over to someone else's house to watch a movie and the god damned motion smoothing setting on their television is turned on. It's a scourge upon mankind that needs to stop. If your movies look weird and other-worldly while you're watching them, it's because you need to turn off the accursed setting known as motion-smoothing or TruMotion or Motion Flow or whatever other buzzworthy marketing term they use to describe this plague on our movie watching.
Hollywood action movie superstar Tom Cruise is now putting out a video demanding that people stop watching movies with this setting turned on. He and M:I—Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie want you to understand why this setting is so detrimental to most movies, particularly well crafted action films like Fallout.
So listen to your friend Tom Cruise, he's a cool dude, and if he wants you to turn this setting off, you turn it off. Simple as that. I think the only person who might be better equipped to yell at you about this might be Wilford Brimley. That guy could scare me into doing just about anything.
