Finally, a celebrity speaks out against something actually important

You may have never heard of the "Soap Opera Effect," but if you buy the Blu-ray (4K or standard edition) for Mission: Impossible Fallout, you'll be treated to an unusual plea before the movie begins: Tom Cruise, the movie's star, and Christopher McQuarrie, the movie's director, encourage you to turn off the motion smoothing feature in your TV's settings. 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.

You know, I never bothered checking my TV's setting sin the first place, and until reading Painboy's post I had no idea there was any such thing as a motion smoothing feature, but now that I know I kinda wanna check it out, and only my inherent laziness is keeping me from doing so.

If this isn't the most on-point PSA by a celebrity, it has to rank in the top 10.

I view their plea the way I view stupid "LIVE LOVE LAUGH" kitsch. Don't tell me what to do and go fuck yourself. Yes. I've been drinking. So what?
