When John Cho heard of "Manzanar: An American Story," a work featuring orchestra, two choirs and spoken text that commemorates the World War II Japanese American internment camp experience, he loved the idea of participating in its Los Angeles premiere. But he wasn't sure he should do it. "At first I felt funny -- being a Korean American -- doing the piece," says Cho, who was born in Seoul and immigrated to the United States with his family as a child.

Comic effrontery is the Bic that lights the bong in the "Harold & Kumar" movies, but willfully strained outrageousness can turn sour like that. For a definition of "that," there's "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," the weakest of the three. Here, the boy-men — now 30-ish men-boys, dealing with adult concerns and relationships, in addition to their perpetual White Castle jones — hunt down a Christmas tree, mix it up with Ukranian gangsters, briefly turn into Claymation-type animated versions of themselves, consort with virgins and meet Santa.

Troy Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom Warner, $30 No one would call director Wolfgang Petersen's epic about the classic hero Achilles a great movie. Some critics didn't even call it a good movie. But there's no denying it's old-fashioned fun entertainment. Petersen, who directed "Das Boot" and "The Perfect Storm," is an old hand at action films.

The presence of the ever-reliable Steve Buscemi adds a welcome boost to "Saint John of Las Vegas," an otherwise unremarkable debut feature from writer-director Hue Rhodes. At first, this askew look at Buscemi's John Alighieri (yes, as in Dante), a compulsive Sin City gambler self-exiled to an insurance company desk job in Albuquerque, promises some decent comedy in the "Office Space" vein. But after it turns into a road movie filled with more forced quirkiness than inspired story development, it's clear this one's going nowhere not-so-fast.

Alfredo Delgadillo broke a 1-1 tie with a sixth-inning home run. Savanna (13-13), the third-place team from the Orange League, advances to face San Luis Obispo (14-8), a 12-8 winner over Goleta Dos Pueblos, in the second round Tuesday at a site to be determined.

Before Marine Cpl. Corey Griggs went on his last patrol in Afghanistan's restive Helmand province, he had a premonition of sorts. "I was joking with my buddies that it was going to be a bad night," said Griggs, 23, of Portland, Ore. He was right. As darkness settled on a recent Saturday over the desert village of Sangin, someone threw a bomb over a mud wall at Griggs and his squad. The blast shattered his right forearm and embedded jagged shrapnel in his left. After emergency surgery at a military outpost, Griggs, who is also being monitored for possible brain injuries, was placed aboard a specially outfitted cargo plane airlifting him to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center next to the U.S. air base at Ramstein, Germany.
