15 Things I like about the movie Heneral Luna

1. The laughter of John Arcilla
2. The musical score of Jerrog Tarog
3. Production design and costume. Authentic but unobtrusive
4. Assassination scene in Cabanatuan
5. Binondo family flashback
6. Jose Rizal encounter
7. Drinking dance of Heneral and Isabel
8. Cabinet meetings
9. Support groups: their capability, dedication and loyalty to HAL
10. Guitar solo and poetry of HAL
11. Stoic, calculating but scheming Emilio Aguinaldo
12. Seeded thought that brilliance comes with eccentricity
13. Inferred message that we deserve what we get
14. Mascardo and HAL and Felipe Buencamino and HAL showdowns
15. Implied humanization of Goyong as a sequel by the same production team
