RED TAILS

(HBO on Comcast) George Lucas produced this action movie about Tuskegee Airmen stationed in Italy during World War II. This is a story people have been waiting decades to see, so it’s no fun feeling responsible to run out and go to a movie that isn’t very good. It means well, but it’s too basic to be rousing or even heartening. Directed by Anthony Hemingway. With Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Terrence Howard. (PG-13; runs through Jan. 28)

THE FOG OF WAR ½

(Encore on Comcast) The 95 minutes spent listening to former secretary of defense Robert McNamara explain his roles in World War II, Vietnam, and the Cold War achieve both a lasting chill of relevance and a blood-quickening intensity. This stirring documentary consists of interviews between McNamara, who was then 85, and the filmmaker Errol Morris, though their conversations often feel more intimate and surreal than a director interrogating his subject. He’s in confession. (PG-13; runs through March 7)

FOR RICHER OR POORER

(Starz on Comcast) Witless comedy about a glitzy Manhattan couple in trouble with the IRS, hiding out in Pennsylvania’s Amish country. Game performances by Kirstie Alley and Tim Allen can’t keep it from succumbing to sitcom clunkiness: It plays like a sendup of “Witness” with a laugh track. (PG-13; runs through April 1)
