Akira [RSC Film Club 39]
The first film of 2022 will be our second animated film, and that is Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira, nominated by @djw180.

An absolute landmark in the history of animation, Akira is a cyberpunk film about a biker gang getting involved in military experiments exploring the limits of telekinetic power.  Incredibly detailed backgrounds of the towering, neon drenched Neo-Tokyo set the standard of what cyberpunk looks like and the soundtrack, a mixture of the traditional and the futuristic, perfectly sets the mood.  And then there's the finale, which I'll leave you to experience for yourself.  I only watched this recently but I'm glad for an excuse to re-watch it as this was a hell of a trip.  


you called for me, didn't you?  and I heard you.

Crew Challenge 252 – Get Trucked
Crew Challenge 252 – Get Trucked
A two player team time trial in Trophy Trucks or Desert Raids. For this one both teammates can use the same vehicle if they like, since I think most people have the Trophy Truck rather than the Desert Raid and they are supposed to be pretty much identical performance wise. The track is locked to these plus the Liberator and Marshal. You're welcome to use any the monster trucks, but I don't think they will give the best lap times. As usual sign up now, semi-random teams will be drawn when we have enough players. Recent winning pairings to be excluded are Me and Rammstein (CC250) , Ally & Rammstein (CC246), Me & Skorp (CC244).

 

The tracks is Dodge's SST: Vespucci

 

 

Usual rules (other than no restriction on teammates cars)

Fastest lap


Any weather / time of day


Any number of laps / attempts


Non-contact if racing with others


No run ups


add up the two team-mate's times for the team total

Ends 19:00 UK time 24th Jan

1979 Rallye De Paleto, Wed 12th January 8PM
The Annual Rallye De Paleto will be held this Wednesday 12th January.
Where is it?
Paleto Bay is a quaint little town in the North of Blaine County, San Andreas.  It's Northwest of Paleto Forest and at the foot of Mount Chiliad.  It's mixture of great shops and amusements as well as the Procopio Beach making it a great place to visit for the whole family. 

 

What is it?


Set over 3 gruelling stages totalling more than 35miles the Rallye De Paleto promises to break cars as well as spirits as it winds through the Paleto Forest, Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, Raton Canyon, Cassidy Creek, the Alamo Sea, Mount Josiah and the Grand Señora Desert. 

It's a multiclass event with cars and drivers from all over the country taking part and racing on the same course at the same time.  Cars will be released in pairs at 30 second intervals with the slower cars at the beginning through to the faster cars near the end meaning everyone will converge near the finishing line in the heart of Paleto Bay for an epic finish of each stage.

There will also be a Special Spectator stage at the end with full contact on.

Who is in it?


 

This is scaled down from last year to just 8 of the closest, and fastest cars.

You can choose from the:

Retinue Mk1

Retinue Mk 2

Tropos Rallye

BF Club

Zion Classic

Comet Safari

Omnis

Savestra

Pick any racing livery you like, a classic race suit and open face helmet would be a bit of a treat too!

Winter Olympics 2022
The Winter Olympics start Feb 4, are you planning to watch? What are the events that you watch?

While I won't set time aside to watch any event, if I happen to catch the Luge to Bobsledding I will watch those, always figured I would like to try Luge but I figure those days are past me.

Certainly though, Curling is at the top of mine and @Dodgelist of events to see.

Crew Challenge 251 – Jingle Those Bells
Crew Challenge 251 – Jingle Those Bells


 

It's that time of year when snow comes to San Andreas so we do our traditional holidays crew challenge, a solo time trial in normal weather and the snow. This year in custom sports cars on Ally's Chaparral Ring Short (R).

 

https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/job/gtav/kIrpN04DbkCJVtJzbVqleg

 

Note this is the reverse direction version of the track.

 

We will start now, assume the snow arrives sometime this week, then it will finish at some point after the snow has gone, whatever gives us enough time to get times in snow and no-snow. So actual end date will be confirmed later, probably early in the New Year.

 

Rules

fastest lap time in snow + fastest lap time in no-snow

custom sports

any number of laps, any number of attempts

non-contact if racing with others

no run ups

 

Starts now

Ends TBC, early next year

Die Hard [RSC Film Club 38]
It's taken three years, but we're finally celebrating Christmas at the Film Club with Die Hard thanks to @TheFox2000unit's nomination.  


Directed by John McTiernan (Predator, The Hunt for Red October, The Last Action Hero), Die Hard is a holiday classic about family, friendship and a terrorist takeover of a Los Angeles skyscraper.  Bruce Willis stars as blue-collar New York cop John McClane, in town to visit his estranged wife and kids at Christmas.  But soon after he goes to meet her at Nakatomi Plaza, the skyscraper in which she works, it is taken over by a group of terrorists led by Hans Gruber, played by Alan Rickman in a fantastically hammy scene-stealing performance.  

I don't think we'll get any argument over whether this is actually a Christmas movie here, because it is.  It's at least Christmas adjacent, and is as much about the actual holiday as It's A Wonderful Life.  This deserves to be ranked amongst the all time Christmas classics just for the awesome Run-DMC song Christmas in Hollis.  I'm sure we've all seen this before, but I'm not gonna complain about having to re-watch one of the most entertaining action films ever made.


if this is their idea of Christmas, I gotta be here for New Year's

Crew Challenge 250 – Go Karting
Crew Challenge 250 – Go Karting
A two player team time trial in go karts. I don't know how many of us have customs and I'm not sure how much faster the customs are, so I am going to say CUSTOMS OFF for this one. Rather than each team mate using a different car there are two tracks. One teammate does the first, the other does the second. As usual sign up now, semi-random teams will be drawn when we have enough players. Recent winning pairings to be excluded are Ally & Rammstein (CC246), Me & Skorp (CC244), Con & Skorp (CC242).

 

The tracks are

Go Karting A Mile https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/job/gtav/9fOfO4OrOUW0K55_lRB0nA


Go-Quartz https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/job/gtav/sLElpKzuFkG0ei7d1obSFw




 

 

 

Usual rules

Fastest lap


Any weather / time of day


Any number of laps / attempts


Non-contact if racing with others


No run ups


non-customs


one teammate does Go Karting A Mile, the other does Go-Quartz


add up the two team-mate's times for the team total

Barton Fink [RSC Film Club 37]
This month's film club selection comes from the filmography of Ethan and Joel Coen, as nominated by @djw180.  The winning film is their lesser known 1991 thriller/comedy/noir film Barton Fink, selected by @Con.

Set in the early 40s, Barton Fink stars John Turturro as the titular character, a hot new playwright who goes to Hollywood to start working on movies.  However, upon arriving he finds that he is being told what to write, and has to stay at the rundown Hotel Earle, which may in fact be hell.  This film has a great, and terrifying, supporting turn from John Goodman as Charlie Meadows, his hotel neighbour, and smaller but memorable roles for the likes of Steve Buscemi and Tony Shalhoub.  

A dark and sometimes surreal film, this has elements that remind me of Mulholland Drive, but with that distinctive Coen Brothers twist.  This is actually my favourite film of theirs and need no excuse to watch it again.

Crew Challenge 249 – Double Entendre Photo Contest
Crew Challenge 249 – Double Entendre Photo Contest
This a photo contest suggested by @Beez based on one he has run before. Take a photo in game (GTA) of something with a double meaning. The hidden meaning is usually s*xual or violent and always funny. There's lots of advertisements and logos like this. The logos look normal until you give them a second look.

To start with we'll say you can submit as many entries as you want. The winners will be decided from a poll. If there are too many to go in one poll I may ask you to pick your best 3 or something like that.

Post your photos here as we go along so that someone else doesn't duplicate your entry. We have done this before a few years ago, so if you took part then try to find something new (if you can remember what your entries were last time). Photos can be taken any way you like, screenshots or snapmatics.

Please try to have all your photos posted before this ends so we can get the poll started ASAP.

 

Starts now

End 19:00 UK time 29th Nov.
