Richard Brooker mentions a hockey team called "The Detroit Islanders". Was he thinking of Detroit Red Wings or New York Islanders? See more »
There came a point where, you know, you had to chose a side. And I was a Jason guy. Always. So for "Jason vs. Freddy" I didn't wanna see anything but see Jason kick Freddy's ass.

His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th (2009)
*** 1/2 (out of 4)
Entertaining documentary covering the nearly thirty-years that Jason has been stalking movie goers and cutting up film critics along the way. Fans will certainly see this as a dream come true considering the large number of people they've gathered from all the movies. The only noticeable people missing are Steve Miner and Corey Feldman. I'm really not sure why Feldman wasn't involved since he was interviewed on the Paramount disc from the box set but a few of the interviewees take a couple pot shots at him. It's also worth noting that there's really not too much discussion dedicated to parts four and five but then again I'm sure fans could take 90-minute documentaries on each film and not just the entire series. On the whole this is a fun documentary as we get to hear from countless victims, fans, producers, directors and so on. Tom Savini hosts the doc and does a good job, although they could have left out all the newly filmed horror sequences, which usually just features cheap death scenes and women screaming. Some of the best moments deal with the surviving women trying to give their ideas on all all-star revival of them going after Jason. If you're a fan of the series then I'm sure you've already heard or read these stories countless times but it's nice to have all of them together.
