MA (**) same as it never was

“There are no real bad performances, but the editing in the third act is enough to turn this horror into a comedy, however unintentionally.”

I Don’t Have A Vote: The 90th Annual Oscars – Great Year for Film, Not Politics

“Hugh Jackman had a great year, with The Greatest Showman and Logan. On the latter film, he does the near impossible in creating an unbreakable character who is finally driven to the point of breaking. His work with Stewart is some of the best of both of their careers. He should have been rewarded for this.”

Divergent Series: Allegiant (***) gets worse than it gives

If they’d finished, the series, it likely would not have been improved much. The same can be said for every film set that tried the same gimmick outside of the last Harry Potter film.

Zootopia (****1/2) preaches effectively (mostly)

The best thing is that the bad actors in the end are bad because they use differences to scare the larger voting base into being afraid of the smaller one. Fear, as we know, is the way to get votes these days. Saying someone who scares you is worthy of being scared of is a cheap pandering method that is used now more than ever, unless you’re Libertarian.
