This looks brilliant....I hope it will be
I agree, and for me what robs it of its power how casually Dan decides to take the fight there. At that point in the story, they've regained the upper hand and have no particular reason to assume Rosie the Hat would be more of a challenge than the rest of the Knot – in every encounter, Abra singlehandedly curbstomped her, and she doesn't even know Dan exists. We needed to feel that there was desperation behind his choice to return to the site of the worst experience of his life and there isn't, just an explanation that he assumes she'll be too powerful (which, again, it's been demonstrated she isn't). If the main character doesn't act afraid of the Overlook, then why should we be?But, there's something that didn't feel right about the scenes at the Overlook Hotel in modern-day (maybe it's just me, but honestly, I had more of a reaction to The Shining Challenge scene in Ready Player One than I did for the final act at the Overlook in this film).
