As a movie that suggests the US military can wage war without anybody but bad guys getting hurt, it’s an obscenity. Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx is stuck in a thankless best-buddy role; bland, blue-eyed Josh Lucas is the hero. (PG; runs through July 3)

Ararat ½

(Starz on Comcast) Acutely intelligent but trying, this Atom Egoyan film addresses the 1915 Armenian genocide at the hands of the Turks.
