Why are film critics grading "inclusive" and/or minority led films with a curve?

I mean, just in the past few months films like Respect, Cinderella and Dear Evan Hansen, who all should have gotten critics in the single or teen digits, all got middling reviews.

All three films are pure crap.

"who should have gotten..."

Oh dear.

They don’t want to be canceled.

I have zero interest in any of these movies.

Dear Evan Hansen hasn't been released yet. So not sure how you arrived at your review, there.

"film critics" don't exist anymore.

Critics have lost their integrity. They’re too worried about getting cancelled that objectivity is out the window, their agenda is a motivator, and they’re critiquing what they’d like the movie to be instead of what it actually is.

Roger Ebert would’ve had the balls to call out the new Candyman as the boring, preachy piece of shit that it was.

Do you know what a critic is? It's a person. No one "gets a critic."
