Netflix Instant: Cool TV & Movies: BTSNAT Edition!

Javi here with another set of Netflix picks for your weekend. This week's theme is going to be "Movies by director Brian Trenchard-Smith that also happen to be on Netflix Instant." That is in honor of my first trip to the world-famous BTSNAT festival, whose name is derived from the director. that was started by a few of my friends down in Austin about 4 years ago. Much like the annual Butt-Numb-A-Thon festival that Harry Knowles organizes every year, this will be a marathon viewing of approximately 24 hours worth of movies in one sitting. The only real requisite is that the last movie has to be a Brian Trenchard-Smith movie. Looking for movies to recommend, I see that I actually haven't seen as many BTS movies as I thought I did. The ones I picked out are just a few one of the ones available, but they look like a fun time. Check them out after the jump.

This is one is giving me a seriously weird Syfy/Asylum vibe to it. I'll definitely be watching it soon. It looks like cheesy fun. 

As cheesy as it sounds, this was my first BTS movie. The big draw was the fact that this was Nicole Kidman's debut. And as is obligatory for any movie set in Australia, it reminds me of my best friend. Overall, it's a pretty fun movie to have in the background. Lots of cool shots of BMX biz going down during the last 20 minutes of the movie..

I haven't gotten around to seeing this one, but it's got a pretty concept. In the future, society's outcasts are quarantined in drive-ins given junk food and movies as a way to sedate them. 

That's it folks! As you read this, I should be heading down to Austin to partake in the festivities! I'll come back with a report sometime next week.
