An additional report from last month's screening in Chicago of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is now up at Movies Online. The report discusses the Riddle House scene at the beginning of the movie, Hogwarts, the first and second tasks and the new additions to the cast.
The first task of the competition is amazing. It is very well produced. Professor McGonagall gives the students a firm speech about the yule ball and it's importance for social reasons and then gives a dance lesson using one of the students as her partner. Ron and Harry have made up at this point, and they have an awful time finding dates as all the girls are chasing around Victor and Cedric. Cho Chang is brilliant, she speaks with a heavy accent and is very pretty. Ron is in total denial that Hermoine has a date to the ball, and she is beautiful when she arrives. Victor and Hermoine hit it off, Ron becomes very jealous, and Hermoine ends up yelling at him. You really see the sparks fly between them in this scene. The only person to really enjoy himself is Neville, who comes home very late after dancing the night away with Ginny.
