With its themes of sacrifice and failure, “Avengers: Endgame” offers much for Christian viewers to think about.

The all-Asian cast and critical acclaim of the new film “Crazy Rich Asians” may remind viewers of “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (2000), but as a romantic comedy about a wedding filmed almost entirely in English, “Crazy Rich Asians” is probably more accessible to a North American audience.
