Wonder Woman (2017)

When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, Diana, an Amazonian warrior in training, leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

This over-average super-hero movie has a conventional plot for its genre, and the exposition is a bit overlong, but it wins with an enjoyably refreshing feminist stance, its amiable hero perfectly cast with Gal Gadot, great action sequences and a fine sense of humour.

Slow West (2015)

A young Scottish man travels across America in pursuit of the woman he loves, attracting the attention of an outlaw who is willing to serve as a guide.

Indeed slow (and short) elegiac Western gives its conventional story depth with its good cast, beautiful landscape cinematography and a sense for the madness of violence.
