We previously reported that a screening of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was scheduled for Chicago this weekend and now we are seeing some feedback.

From Ain't It Cool News (profanity warning*):
First off, the best action scenes deal with his tasks during the tournament. The entrances of the two competing schools are clever and done very well. There's an awesome scene where Harry has to deal with a dragon that had me on the edge of my seat. I won't spoil it, but just think of a Jurassic Park version of Quidditch. There's also a great scene underwater with some seriously bad-ass mermaids (I know - go figure). The usual characters make an appearance (Dumbledore, McGonagall, Snape), but this time around they don't get a lot of screen time unfortunately.
This movie is by far the greatest movie we've had yet! I have a lot of love for the third, because Sirius and Lupin are my favorite characters, but I can't deny the absolute fabulousness of this one. The hormones are running even higher and this installment- even higher than they were in the book. I hate to say it, but even though they kept in all of the great Ron/Hermione issues (i.e. Krum), there's a lot of Harry/Hermione going on. Fred, George, and Neville all play MUCH LARGER parts.
