    The biggest tech revolution of the 21st Century isn't digital, it's biological. A breakthrough called CRISPR has given us unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life. It opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere, and designing our own children. Human Nature is a provocative exploration of CRISPR's far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families its affecting, and the bio-engineers who are testing its limits. How will this new power change our relationship with nature? What will it mean for human evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.

Sweet dreams are made of this...

I had the chance to sit down and watch the 2004 documentary "Empire of Dreams: The Story of the 'Star Wars' Trilogy" now for the first time in 2020. In fact, I wasn't even aware of its existence before now. Shame on me, especially with my love for the "Star Wars" franchise.

Well, initially I must admit that I didn't really have much of any high hopes for this documentary, as the previous many "Star Wars" based documentaries I've seen have been halfhearted ones that didn't really offer much of new insight or information. But hey, it is a "Star Wars" documentary, so of course I had to sit down and watch it.

Turned out that "Empire of Dreams: The Story of the 'Star Wars' Trilogy" is actually the best and most insightful of documentaries that I have seen about the "Star Wars" franchise. And I was definitely amazed with the amount of information and behind the scenes information they managed to cram into the limited playtime.

"Empire of Dreams: The Story of the 'Star Wars' Trilogy" is a MUST watch for fans of the franchise, especially people around my age, whom were children during the first three movie, the original trilogy.

My rating of "Empire of Dreams: The Story of the 'Star Wars' Trilogy" is a sure eight out of ten stars. This is one documentary that you have to sit down and watch, provided you get the chance. Well worth the time and effort.
