Blue Story is a 2019 British musical crime drama film written, directed, and narrated by Rapman (Andrew Onwubolu) through the medium of rap and starring Stephen Odubola and Micheal Ward, with Eric Kofi-Abrefa, Khali Best, Karla-Simone Spence, Richie Campbell, Jo Martin and Junior Afolabi Salokun in supporting roles.

The website's consensus reads, \"Raw and riveting, Blue Story overcomes its somewhat prosaic story with powerful performances and an impressive clarity of purpose.\" On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 69 out of 100 based on reviews from 15 critics, which indicates \"generally favourable reviews\".
Afterward, I was watching the film and thinking where to add more raps to the story that would help to push it forward. I aimed this at a younger audience, wanted every rap to say, this is what can happen. We had a lot more in there than what we originally planned.
It was originally a 3-part YouTube short that I had made in 2014 and a lot of the comments were saying to make it into a movie. I wanted people to write the script and people said it would cost over $30,000. So I wrote the story in Microsoft Word and it was a nightmare. Someone suggested I get Final Draft and it was amazing. It took six months to write and there was no pressure on me because no one was expecting it.

\"It's storytime and Blue wants to read her favorite story, so we play Blue's Clues to figure out what the story is. Couched between the clues, we help Shovel and Pail act out Jack and Jill, arrange our photo album in order, and help three bears choose which bowl and cup belong to whom.\"
Blue does not want Steve to read \"A Puppy's Day,\" so they play a game of Blue's Clues to find out Blue's favorite story. Along the way, they help Shovel and Pail play out \"Jack and Jill,\" put the pictures tell the story of how Blue met Magenta in the right order and match the three bears with their belongings. The clues were bricks, a wolf, and a pig. Steve thinks it is the story of \"The Little Pig Who Cried Wolf,\" but the answer was \"The Three Little Pigs,\" because it had a pig who built a house of bricks and a big bad wolf tried to blow down the brick house. After figuring out the answer to Blue's Clues, it was Storytime. Shovel, Pail, Tickety Tock, Magenta, and the three bears all came to hear the story. After the story, Steve sings The So Long Song, and the episode ends.
The message is very clear in Blue Story, but the terrifying truth at the heart of the story leaves the viewer feeling that there is no answer to the problems that are addressed, and the screenplay leaves the audience with little to cling onto at the end.

Click on items you would like to remove from the playing field to get the blue box to fall, slide, or flip to land on the blue ledge. On some levels you may need to remove multiple parallel blocks in rapid succession, whereas on other levels you may need to roll a ball into an object to make other items move. Some levels require precise timing while others are more slowly paced.
To beat level 15 you need to make the lever stronger by increasing its range of motion. Remove the middle of 3 brown wooden planks in the bottom area, then after it stabilizes remove the bottom plank, then the pink boxes on each side. After that you drop the plank at the very top of the page then quickly remove the yellow box which is sitting above the blue box. When the yellow box from the top falls down this causes the right side of the lever to fall & the blue box flies across to the blue bar.

Based on a trilogy of short films by rapper, YouTube star, and director Andrew Onwubolu aka Rapman, Blue Story charts the story of best friends Timmy (Stephen Odubola) and Marco (Micheal Ward) as they are caught up in vicious and dangerous cycle of post code gang wars.
Gang turf warfare meets Shakespearean melodrama (as told through the language of rap) in Andrew Onwubolu aka. Rapman's Blue Story, an impassioned feature-length adaptation of the British musician-filmmaker's YouTube series inspired by his real-life upbringing. The film made headlines after violence broke out at screenings in the UK last fall, yet the actual movie is anything but a sensationalized drama and is fiercely critical of the machismo that fuels the destructive behavior of its depicted versions of real-world London gangs. It's also clearly the work of a first-time director who's already found their voice and is ready to take the next step of refining it. Blue Story can be messy in stretches, but it's undeniably passionate and carried by its simple, yet effective, and sometimes lyrical storytelling.
Altogether, Blue Story does what any good debut feature should: establish its director as a storyteller with a unique style and a voice worth listening to. It's the type of non-American film that might've struggled to make its way across the pond (much less, attract a sizable audience) in the past, but is thankfully more accessible in the current market. That's all the more meaningful, considering its messages about toxic masculinity and young black lives should resonate just as much with people in the U.S. as it does in the UK. All in all, it's a story to pause and take in.
New stories are published frequently throughout Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (March), as well as the rest of the year. Each story puts another face to this disease. If you have been touched in some way by colon or rectal cancer, you are a face of blue.
BLUE STORY tells the story of two childhood friends whose relationship is wrecked by a turf war. Friends since school, Timmy (Stephen Odubola) and Marco (Micheal Ward) have successfully managed to avoid the gang violence taking place in the streets around them. But as they grow older, the fact that they grew up in different neighborhoods causes a rift between them, and a set of tragic events is put in motion.
A tough watch, this film doesn't hide from the destructive violence that it's shining a light on. The fact that the violence involves teens -- some of whom start Blue Story as innocents -- only adds to the shock and despair. Rather than glamorize it, director and writer Andrew Onwubolu (also known as Rapman) shows how easily teens can be drawn into gang life, no matter how reluctantly. The filmmaker actually appears sporadically throughout the movie, breaking the fourth wall and rapping directly to viewers. It's a technique that risks distracting audiences, but it's handled with aplomb and helps fill in gaps within the narrative. Odubola and Ward are great as the best friends who become warring enemies, and though it's a familiar path in storytelling -- think Greek tragedy or Shakespeare -- there's a genuine sadness as you see their relationship deteriorate beyond repair. A twist in the final act feels forced, and there's no happy ending. But, as is reflected in real life, this story rarely does. 59ce067264
