THE ENCOUNTER (2010)
Five years ago, I was alone in a Good Friday. (Holy week, exactly). I was hoping to watch a Tagalog classic movie. Sad to say, I wasn't able to find a local channel doing that anymore. I decided to switch channels by pressing the remote control to look for something interesting to watch. Suddenly, there's a film that caught my attention. It's about five strangers in a diner where they meet a mysterious man claiming he's Jesus Christ. They must decide whether they accept and obey Jesus or harm themselves as they follow the devil. Pureflix Entertainment made this film two years prior to the year when I watched it. This isn't a Close Encounter to the Third Kind thing. Instead, this is an encounter you'll never forget once you watch this. The movie touched my heart albeit no characters in the movie had an exact situation or circumstances in my life. This film made an impact on a personal level. It confronted some issues such as unbelief, trust, patience, second chances and a lot more. As one of the many actors who played Jesus, Bruce Marchiano portrayed a modern day Jesus Christ on an endearing and natural level. Jaci Velasquez, Madison Gibney, Steve "Sting" Borden and other actors made the film complete with their successful characterization. I admit that this is my favorite movie of all time. This movie cannot be categorized as one of the greatest movies of all time. It's surreal. I love other Pureflix Entertainment movies like God's Not Dead and Do You Believe? even Kendrick Brothers' War Room but The Encounter is still the best. Recommendations: This feature can be used as part of Encounter Retreat.
