Top Teamwork Films To Inspire Your Tribe!
Popcorn at the ready!Now, for all our differences and idiosyncrasies, there's one thing that we all have in common: we all adore a good film!
Maybe you're a horror fan who gets a buzz from being spooked. Or, maybe you prefer films that have you on the edge of your sofa from the off. Perhaps you enjoy marvelling at mega-glitzy blockbusters rammed with jaw-dropping special effects. Or, maybe you love nothing more than to spend Saturday nights curled up with bar of choccy and hugging a box of tissues, sobbing your heart out to a mushy, girl-meets-boy romcom.
Genres aside, every film makes us feel. Moving pictures have the potential to elicit every type of emotion from within us. We feel anger, pain, excitement, satisfaction, happiness...you name it, we can experience it.Films can also teach us a thing or two. They can educate us and help us to learn about things like periods in history or cultures different from our own. And, they can also help teach tribes how to be better tribes!
