In terms of graphic horror and shocking visual images, there's never been a war movie quite like Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan." The film, which opens today, is a far cry from the majority of war films--especially the propaganda movies of World War II--which were made to boost the country's spirits and encourage young men to enlist. But over the decades, there have been numerous films that attempted to capture the intensity, carnage, fear and unbridled heroism of war.

Ceremonies to mark the start of construction of Edwards Cinema Plaza, a 12-screen movie theater and two restaurants, will take place at 4 p.m. Monday at Foothill Boulevard and B Street. The City Council approved the controversial project 1989, but it was delayed by lawsuits challenging the completeness of the city's environmental studies.

Developers will install a traffic signal at the entrance to the new Metro Pointe Shopping Center under construction on South Coast Drive, despite opposition from residents who live nearby. Residents of the Greenbrook neighborhood complained about the signal, saying it would be too close to Greenbrook Drive and create safety problems by causing traffic backups that would block access to South Coast Drive.
