I've been dabbling in Google sheets, and since it's online, seems to be a lot of JS , scripts and so on, makes them slow.

Does open office calc have the same functionality as Google sheets?

Are there any benefits to using Calc vs Google sheets?

I don't need any collaboration tools, this is all for me, and actually I prefer to work offline.

The answer for your last statement is obvious. Use Calc of OpenOffice or LibreOffice.

Benefits? There are some differences, see incompatibility comparison of Excel|GDocs|LibreCalc in a German Libre forum thread: https://www.libreoffice-forum.de/viewto ... excel+calc
In short:
German: Blau: möglich, Rot: nicht möglich, Schwarz: nicht bekannt oder Kommentar
English: Blue: possible, Red: not possible, Black: unknown or comment
Formulae are in German Language, for better understanding ask specific questions in this forum...
