Star Wars: Empire Of Dreams By First Class Reviews
Star Wars: Empire Of Dreams Review By First Class Reviews: Some Documentary's are so informative that you think you are reading a dictionary. And well Star Wars: Empire Of Dreams isn't one of them, you cannnot find a better source of information on the original Star Wars trilogy than this one. Filled with lots of information, set photos,actor interviews and anything else that has to do with star wars. But it doesn't have too much that just makes you sit there with a sigh and have other things on your mind. And i think that more documentary's should be like this. It's just real fresh to see a good documentary like this, well i guess it's fresh to just see a documentary.
