Tom Cruise urges home movie watchers to turn off motion smoothing for a better experience.

Cruise and Mission: Impossible — Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie — reunited on the set of Top Gun: Maverick — appeared in a 90-second video meant to bring attention to motion smoothing, known more technically as interpolation or more casually as the “soap opera effect.” Cruise acknowledges in the video that “the unfortunate side effect” of motion smoothing technology is that it makes it seem like movies were “shot on high-speed video rather than film.”

Consumer Reports recommends three changes when you buy an HDTV:
*turn off motion smoothing, aka "judder", aka "auto motion plus", aka "trumotion", aka "motionflow"
*turn "sharpness control" and/or "edge enhancment" down to 0
*turn off "noise reduction"

If you go here: https://www.rtings.com/ and find your tv, they’ll give you specific recommended settings for your specific model. Should also decipher the brand jargon.
