NYT Crossword Puzzle 10-10-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 43A Tax pro, for short: CPA because I’m a CPA and I do not do tax. I knew when I went into financial accounting that people would ask me tax questions and that people would not remember that I do not do tax. It has panned out that. Some people don’t even believe that I don’t do tax. Some say, “But you used to, right?” The answer to that always is no.

The title of this puzzle is Clue: The Movie.

23A Field of Dreams: PSYCHOANALYSIS.
38A Star Trek: THEREDCARPET.
50A Top Gun: TSHIRTGUN. How are those always awesome?
66A Letters From Iwo Jima: KANJI.
67A The Imitation Game: SIMONSAYS.
69A The Fifth Element: BORON.
84A A Man for All Seasons: BINGEWATCHER. OK, so Calah and I started watching Squid Game, and it’s sooooooooo slooooooooooooooooow. It was described to me as a Netflix show in Korean rather than a K-drama. We’re not even halfway through the show yet, but the formula tends to be that they telegraph what’s going to happen, the obvious thing happens, and then they remind you of the thing that just happened. That way you never fall behind. Or have to think. Or pay attention the whole way through. It’s not a popular opinion, but still.
97A Scent of a Woman: CHANELNOFIVE.
113A Wayne’s World: GOTHAM. Bruce Wayne.
114A Space Jam: FLYMETOTHEMOON. And let me play on the red carpet?
