Train to Busan [XDBX Film Club 10]
You ever wondered what would happen if you were on a long train ride and suddenly a zombie apocalypse broke out??? Then you will LOVE watching this with us this month!!!!
The concluding half of our Halloween Horror double bill was nominated by @Spinnaker1981, who chose the 2016 South Korean zombie thriller, Train to Busan.
The first live action film directed by Yeon Sang-ho, after the animated films The King of Pigs and The Fake, Train to Busan is a classic zombie apocalypse thriller with a twist.  What if you were on a train when the world ends?  This is another selection I haven't seen, but Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) said of the film "best zombie movie I've seen in forever."  That's a man who knows his zombies.  

Train to Busan stars Gong Yoo as a workaholic father who, for her birthday, takes his daughter on the train to Busan to see her mother.  But just as the train departs a woman with a bite on her leg boards, and starts acting strangely...

Crew Challenge 196 - Dune
Crew Challenge 196 - Dune
I should have done this a couple of week's ago to tie in with Film Club really. But anyway, this is a solo time trial challenge locked to a certain large off road vehicle. The track is basically a recreation of Rock Star's Just Deserts, but only the Dune is available, so this can be done with randoms without anyone picking a faster car / bike.

Track - Just Dunes https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/job/gtav/CoXwcWNuvEuECKg3ZbSFYg
Should be locked to the Dune, if for any reason other vehicles become available, please do not use themfastest lap wins any time of day any weather as many laps and attempts as you like

Monday Motor Mayhem Mischief and Merriment
Monday Motor Mayhem, Mischief, and Merriment (M5)
A racing and driving focused weekly playlist that is in the evening EU time.
May have the occasional combat or adversary job, but again vehicle focused.
While it may bear some striking similarities to TNT, and may even feature some of the same events, it most decidedly isn't TNT. It doesn't happen on Thursday.

A chance to enjoy the whole range of vehicles in the game, not just the best 5% of them.

The Lost Boys [XDBX Film Club 09]
Come watch the first film that made me want to be a vampire and also put the fear of death getting my first hickey!!! The Lost Boys a classic little tale of puberty and danger, what could be better?

The first half of our Halloween Horror double feature is the film that made vampires cool again, blazing a trail for stuff like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twilight.  Nominated by @Pb76, 1987's The Lost Boys.

Directed by the man who nearly killed Batman, Joel Schumacher (Falling Down, Batman Forever, Phone Booth) and starring an ensemble cast of established and up-and-coming actors like Corey Haim, Dianne Wiest, Kiefer Sutherland and Corey Feldman, The Lost Boys is the story of a new kid in town who suspects something is up with the local biker gang, led by the charismatic David (Sutherland).  I've got not much more to say, having not seen this before, but I know how iconic this film is so am looking forward to seeing why it has such a big cult following.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer [Film Club Extra 03]
Ever get that not-so-fresh feeling while watching a thriller? Then you will love watching this as the underlying current is thick and you will have no idea where it is heading. This is what Lime had to say....
I'm gonna be selfish here, and throw this film in as an extra for Halloween simply because I can't stop thinking about it since I saw it a few weeks ago and would really like to hear your guys' opinion on it.  The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a psychological horror/thriller from Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Favourite), a Greek filmmaker who has fast become one of my favourites.


The film stars Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman as Steven and Anna Murphy, a seemingly perfect couple.  They are both medical professionals, they have two bright young children, and live in a luxurious home with all the trappings that entails.  But Steven has a strange relationship with the young Martin (Barry Keoghan), one that threatens to tear his family apart.

If you know anything about Greek mythology, you can probably get a good idea of the plot from the title, but I won't say anything about it here, because each new revelation pushed me further towards the edge of my seat.  I will spoil the score I'm going to give this now though by saying that, for me, this film is a perfect 10/10, and Lanthimos's best film to date (despite The Favourite being nominated for a butt-load of Oscars).

XDBX Chronicle #79(skinny edition)
XDBX Newsletter Time!!! Check out what went down this past month!!

THE NEWS IN TEN
1. Sunday Racing League week four belonged to @Dodge 🇺🇸 , fresh from taking over the leadership of the crew, he took over the leadership of the SRL points table with another solid performance which included his first SRL victory. @Protocawl 🇪🇪  remained in 2nd, @omarcomin71 🇺🇸 sat in 3rd.

2. Sunday Racing League had a tense final week with nothing to separate @Fido_le_muet 🇫🇷  and @Protocawl 🇪🇪 , I mean literally nothing as they finished level on points to share the title. @omarcomin71 🇺🇸  was third overall.

3. Crew challenge 174 - Repo saw @Protocawl sorting out Simeon’s shit swiftest (4:27), @Lann was 2nd (5:24), @Skorpion managed 3rd (6:18).@Con (6:57), @djw180 (6:59) and @Spinnaker1981 (8:00) also took part.

4. Crew challenge 175 - Rockford crossing is a 2-player time trial on the aforementioned track, one player in a compact, one in an SUV. Still another week or so to wrestle an inconveniently sized vehicle around this tricky track.

5. It’s a horror double bill as the XDBX Film club celebrates Halloween, The Lost Boys (1987) is the pre 1990 pick, with Train to Busan (2016) as the modern choice. I personally can’t wait to hear what @LimeGreenLegend makes of them...

6. Congratulations to @JustHatched who has worked his way from piss ant to the manager of the facility he recently took up employment with, his passion for the job has led to them increasing sales of their Lady Gaga merchandise by 400%

7. I hope @Banketelli has plenty of laundry powder after all of this diving around (and blood splatters are murder to get out)

8. Over on @ConTV, the latest episode of Doctor Pimplepopper:Xtreme saw @Beez get a radical new treatment......

9. And on ‘Dancing with the stars’ @Con won the dance-off against a STMT crew member 

10. And finally.....did you know? If you rearrange the letters of DOMESTIC BATTERY, you get BATTY DIME ESCORT or COSY BEDTIME TART or CAT BEDTIME STORY.

2 @Lann 5:24
3 @Skorpion 6:18

On to the next challenge!!!

ONLY A FEW DAYS TO GO!!! Get those times down!!
Crew Challenge 194 – Repo
This challenge comes from a suggestion by Lann for another mission challenge, this time one of Simeon's Repo missions. Fastest time to complete the mission (solo, hard) wins. You will need to save and upload a video.
The mission is Burn Rate.

Rules

mission settings


solo


hard




not allowed to be used


flying vehicles


explosives


special ammo




Save a video


timer starts when you appear outside of Premium Deluxe Motorsport


timer ends when the mission passed message appears





Quick restarting is allowed but there is no advantage in it, given the above start point for the timer. If you did quick restart then both the failed and successful attempts would add to the total time.

 

Any rules I've missed that need adding?

Combat Guide (Aim Settings, Weapons & Tips)
A combat guide was requested so I'm gonna try to explain the reasons behind my aim settings and give my two cents on the different weapons since I dabble quite a bit with virtual guns. It has to be said that I'm still not sure about a lot of the settings so I mess around with them quite a bit to see what works, and what works for me might not work for you...
