  DVDFILE.COM: From Here To Eternity review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
From Here to Eternity is the third movie that I've seen adapted from a novel by James Jones (Some Came Running and Thin Red Line being the other two).
From Here to Eternity follows the stories of the men stationed at the Army base in Pearl Harbor in 1941 (and the women who love them, to use a cliche), and culminates in the December 7 attack by the Japanese.
From Here To Eternity is finally on DVD, and while the presentation of the film is as solid as one would expect of Columbia's prized assets, I'm surprised the supplements are so weak after so long a wait.

From Here to Eternity offers a much more heartfelt interpretation of the event that propelled the United States into World War II than any film made in recent years.
Here there are no angst-ridden scenes where "true love" returns from the dead, no costly CGI and definitely no Hallmark happy ending.
FROM HERE TO ETERNITY presents a realistic portrait of army life in Hawaii immediately before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

 From Here to Eternity: Superbit (1953)
While From Here to Eternity won’t qualify as one of my favorites among the films on the AFI’s Top 100 list, it still offered a generally solid experience, and one that wasn’t what I expected when I first watched it.
At times parts of Eternity felt contrived, especially in regard to the run-ins between Judson and Maggio; the latter seemed to act out of character to a degree just to suit the story.
From Here to Eternity appears in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1 on this single-sided, double-layered DVD; due to those dimensions, the image has not been enhanced for 16X9 televisions.

When, at the height of McCarthist America, James Jones’ controversial novel From Here to Eternity topped the best-seller list, it was generally considered unfilmable; packed as it was with illicit sex, violence, and being a sombre indictment of the peacetime military.
Produced in 1953, From Here to Eternity is approaching 50 years old and was filmed at an aspect ratio of 4:3 (full frame) - the standard at the time.
From Here to Eternity is one of Hollywood's true classics and the most enjoyable of the 19 films of the '50s that populate the AFI top 100 films of last century (well, of the several I have seen anyway :).

"From Here to Eternity" is filled with one character after another who is desperate.
All of them are either desperate for power, desperate for love, desperate for acceptance, or desperate to escape their past.
And even though it's legacy may be slightly diminished, "From Here to Eternity" will always be fondly remembered as the film that more than any other made making out at the beach fashionable.

But now here comes my whippersnapperish colleague Mark Reiter with his PopMatters review of From Here to Eternity, a 1999 compilation of songs the Clash performed live between 1978 and 1982.
But here you must re-read Mark Reiter, who talks about "these here cynical days," and know that the Clash first appeared in "those there cynical days," and know that cynicism is the demon they, and the best agit-rockers, (and artists in pretty much general) have always set out to exorcise.

From Here to Eternity (1953) Directed by Fred Zinnemann.
The novel and film's explanation that the Army was a home to him when his own family failed him seems weak justification for his tolerating the torture devised by a superior office determined to make him a member of the boxing team.

This study examines one of James Jones's novels, From Here to Eternity, published in 1951, the first book of a three-part World War II trilogy.
From Here to Eternity is much more than a fictionalization of historic events.
Jones's approach was set out in a letter to Mack Morris in 1957, roughly six years after the publication of From Here to Eternity.

Eternity is time and space without boundaries or limits and having no beginning or end and we all (not just God) forever, in one form or another, inhabit a certain period and position within it.
Funk and Wagnall may well define eternity as a very long duration OF TIME, but then again Funk and Wagnall is not exactly at the top of scholastic achievement either.
But to give you just two verses here that shows that not even all those who claim to be believers are actually true believers, and are saved for eternal life, we need look no further than Jesus words in Matthew 7:21 and Luke 13:24.

Adapted from a popular, yet controversial novel of the time, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY is a very adult film, filled with complex characters each carrying their own weight in emotional baggage.

Trivia: The title phrase comes originally from Rudyard Kipling's 1892 poem "Gentlemen-Rankers", about soldiers of the British Empire who had "lost [their] way" and were "damned from here to eternity".
Though a little uneven overall, "From Here To Eternity" has some compelling moments and sequences, and it also has an assortment of interesting, if not entirely sympathetic, characters.

 The Clash: From Here to Eternity: Live: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Secondly, if you're not familiar with the Clash, From Here to Eternity is more or less a sampler of what some would call the band's greatest hits, save for "Rock the Casbah," which is notably overlooked.
The bottom line on From Here to Eternity is that it seems to be geared more towards the legions of punk kids who are just discovering the Clash than to those fans who are already well-acquainted with Strummer, Jones, and Associates.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing, though, since no fault can be found with the tracks themselves, and since they accurately depict a great band performing a smattering of their most renowned songs live.

 Judi Hoffman Introduces From Here to Eternity
James Jones based his first novel in 1951, From Here to Eternity, on his own military experience as a World War II veteran, and created a scathing portrait of peacetime military life in the U.S. army in the months before Pearl Harbor.
From Here to Eternity was filmed in only 41 days, from early March to May, 1953, at the Columbia studio in Hollywood and on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

 Giorgio Moroder: From Here to Eternity: Pitchfork Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
From Here to Eternity was Moroder's third solo LP (after 1972's underrated, if redundantly titled Son of My Father, and 1976's Knights in White Satin), and is a marvel for disco historians, and a perfect nugget of dance music for anyone else.
The second half of From Here to Eternity loses some of the charge, if only due to its comparatively conventional, disconnected structure.
Still, the dark vocoder intro and rising intensity of soprano harmonies during the chorus of "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone" is a interestingly compact specimen of Moroder's way with a pop song, and only suffers when you compare it to his work with Summer from the same period.

While Eternity won’t qualify as one of my favorites among the films of the list, it still offered a generally solid experience, and one that wasn’t what I expected.
Not surprisingly - given the era in which it was made - Eternity largely opts for social responsibility, but not for the expected reasons; the characters see more personal motivations to do the right thing.
Ultimately, From Here to Eternity was a strong enough film to merit a look, but the DVD presentation seemed lackluster.

From Here to Eternity takes places at the Hawaiian army base Schofield, where the jingoistically-named boxer Robert E. Lee Prewitt (the sublime Montgomery Clift) makes waves for refusing to earn his stripes in the ring.

 St. James Encyclopedia of Pop Culture: From Here to Eternity
First as a novel and then as a film, From Here to Eternity enjoyed enormous critical and popular success in the early 1950s.
The novel's two central characters, Robert E. Lee Prewitt, a boxer and bugler of unusual talent and unyielding principles, and Sergeant Milton Anthony Warden, also a man of integrity but a master manipulator and covert enemy of the officer class as well, are exceptionally well realized.
Largely because of its unrelenting expose of the corrupt officer class in the old peacetime army and the frankness of its treatment of sexuality, From Here to Eternity benefitted, in its popular success, from the public's appetite for sensationalism.

Massive confusion reigns in the Phase 1B area: people have been told they will have to find their own place to be relocated, and then LHDA will rebuild their houses – or maybe just pay them R9,000 to build their own, no matter how many buildings they now own.
The pace of relocation here is also a source of confusion: some have said they have to move in a few months, although the dam is still many years away.

From Here to Eternity (1953) is the powerful, realistic story (and fierce indictment) of the lives of American military men (and their women) stationed in peacetime Hawaii (near Honolulu) in the summer and fall before the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in late 1941 and the US entrance into WW II.
It was also re-made as a glossy, 2-hour TV melodrama titled From Here to Eternity (1979) starring William Devane, Natalie Wood, Steve Railsback, Joe Pantolino, Peter Boyle and Kim Basinger, and directed by Buzz Kulik.
