Millions of Britons bought HD-ready televisions over the past decade on the promise of being able to enjoy their favourite programmes in superior picture quality.

Still, one might argue that because sports look just fine without it, and the setting has the effect of making most movies and TV shows look like they were shot on your iPhone, it should be kept off - at least as a default. Viewers have also complained that the action looks "too real" and excessively sharp.

TheMission Impossible star, 56, said a setting known as "motion smoothing" ruins films because it makes them "look like they were shot on high-speed video rather than film".

"If you own a modern high-definition television there's a good chance you're not watching movies the way filmmakers intended, and the ability for you to do so is not simple for you to access", McQuarrie added.

Test Breakthrough Could See Cancer Diagnosed In Minutes

Your TV's motion smoothing setting is probably buried somewhere in its video menu.

In a passionate video posted to Twitter, the "Mission Impossible" actor appeared alongside screenwriter, director and producer Christopher McQuarrie to explain the feature.

Baby born to woman with uterus from deceased donor
Deceased donor uterus transplants have been attempted in the past few years, but none resulted in the birth of a healthy baby. She received the uterus during a 10.5-hour surgery in September 2016 from a 45-year-old donor who had died of a stroke.

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 odd". If you do a Google search for your particular make and model and "motion smoothing", you'll probably quickly find out exactly how to turn it on and off. In the video, they suggest googling "turn off motion smoothing [your brand of TV here]". Some readers complained Cruise wasn't suited to play the part.

We'll be honest, this isn't what we expected of the first video from the long-awaited Top Gun sequel.
