There's murder afoot, at least at your local multiplex, and we've got two new Spoiler Specials to help you make sense of who's killing whom and why. If you're planning to see either Michael Mann's Miami Vice or Woody Allen's Scoop, download our critics' "post-views" and listen after the film (or come back to this page and play the spoilers from these links: Miami Viceand Scoop).

Remember, these spoilers give away key plot points and details about the endings, so listen only if you've seen the movies or if you have absolutely no intention of doing so.

Our Vice spoiler features Slate movie critic Dana Stevens and staff writer Bryan Curtis. Discussing Scoop are Slate's June Thomas and special guest Oliver Burkeman, New York correspondent for Britain's Guardian newspaper.

And in case you missed them, here are links to our four previous Spoiler Specials:
