Slate's Spoiler Specials are not reviews of current movies, but "postviews" -- audio critiques meant to be played AFTER you've seen the film. Slate movie critic Dana Stevens leads discussions of twist endings, plot holes, and other secrets you won't read in the reviews. It's the kind of discussion you have with friends as you're leaving the theater. Part of the Panoply Network. WARNING: Listening to these podcasts before you've seen a film could be hazardous to your suspension of disbelief!

Customer Reviews

The spoiler podcast fills a valuable niche

We've all had the experience when we get together with friends and start to discuss a movie, then discover that one of us hasn't seen it yet. It's frustrating trying to share our opinions with each other without spoiling the movie for others. A film critic is always in that position. This podcast relieves that frustration. I am very interested in what other people get out of a movie, and I've found the spoiler podcasts very entertaining. Without exception I've come away with some new ideas about the movies reviewed after listening to it, whether I agree with everything or not. Regarding all the negative reviews, I'll note in passing that the number of stars is inversely correlated with the sum of misspellings + grammar mistakes + illiteracies.

Doesn't do it for me...

One review put it: "dismissive and smug" I agree with that. I like the concept of the discussion. The dialogue is something left to be desired.

No idea what everyone else is talking about

The whole concept is cute and fun, like the Slate spoiler specials graphic on the upper left hand corner of your screen. Quick witted and smiling movie discussion that doesn't purport itself to be anything else.
