November is here, and Netflix is adding a bunch of Filipino movies, starting with Heneral Luna. For the longest time, Netflix has had a serious lack of Tagalog titles, leading Pinoys to competitors like HOOQ if they want to watch Filipino movies online … legally, that is.
So, in case you missed these Pinoy movies in the big screen, this may be your chance to watch them online for free on Netflix.
