You should still try to attempt to critic/judge the film on whether the plot and actions of the characters work within the world of the constructed film. You don't have to agree with it's message but that doesn't mean the movie is bad.
I do think people who are viewed as professional critics, the ones who publish for magazines and newspapers,etc (whatever ones are still around) should show more naunce in letting their personal politics take control of a review. They shouldn't let the review become a launch pad for their own diatribe against something they see as wrong in our society. That's also something Ebert did. He wouldn't post reviews like the ones in Time magazine of Entertainment Weekly just did for this film.
Shazam was a good movie, not a great one. Didn't change the genre or anything but it was ok. Aquaman wasn't well received by a bunch of critics so I don't think it's some underrated gem. It's just really crazy and dumb and overstuffed and unashamedly so and maybe some people admire that about it, I dunno...
