AwesomeThe Defiant Ones is a 99.9% perfect documentary that tells the parts we know and the parts we don’t know of the legendary story of Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Aftermath, and Interscope Records. It won’t change your life, but it will show you how two very different people worked together to make real world magic. You will learn the story of Interscope’s world famous Christmas records, Dr. Dre’s the Chronic, the beginning of the careers of Kendrick Lamar, Trent Reznor, and more. The interviews with Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Eminem, Bono, and more, are insightful and well made. The way that this documentary presents events from the past is thrilling. I thought I knew almost everything to know about the legendary men and women featured in this documentary, but I was wrong. I learned things I never knew, and a few things that surprised me. If you love music, Dr. Dre, Eminem, U2, documentaries, 80’s and 90’s hip hop and everything in between, this is a doc for you. HBO and Universal knocked it out of the park with this genuinely entertaining story of two real world heroes, the struggles they faced, and the triumphs they made happen..Score: 5/5

Really interestingFound the weaving together of the two stories quite interesting. Learned a lot, amazing the influence Jimmy I had on several generations of artists. Gave too short treatment of the negatives and challenges, but at least flagged some of them..Score: 4/5

AmazingI would absolutely recommend it if you are a fan of anything Dr Dre has done. I was a little discouraged when I saw that it was about Jimmy Iovine as well but I found his story interesting. Absolutely recommend!.Score: 5/5

Amazing. Top 1st or 2nd doc I've ever seen.First off, I wanna say that good music died in the 90's. Second, I consider Trent and Dre to be the top 2 producers of all time. So when I saw how intertwined all of this was, I was blown away. It's amazing that one man can have so much influence in music and in history. Without Jimmy, I and millions of others would have been deprived of some of the best music ever made. This was an amazing, in depth and thorough look of what I consider to be the best time in music's history. Extremely well made, entertaining and vastly educational on what really went on behind the scenes. Thank you God for Jimmy Iovine..Score: 5/5

RivetingThis is one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen full of interesting stories of these men plus terrific film footage of many of musics best artists. Told in easy flowing narratives I was so pleasantly surprised at the depth of this documentary..Score: 5/5

InfomercialThis is a four hour commercial for crappy headphones with too much bass. This is great marketing but it isn't a documentary. Proceed with your eyes wide open..Score: 1/5

More garbage from the garbage menNot worth a penny....Score: 1/5

One of the best docs on cultureA great doc that intersects stories of race, culture, and (of course) music. Part 3 in particular should be considered a case study in skillfully dealing with a large amount of information in a short period of time. One of my favorites!.Score: 5/5

1Part 1 (The Defiant Ones) recap, spoilers

Part 1

09 July 2017$3.99

Years before they brokered one of the biggest deals in music history--the 2014 sale of Beats Electronics to Apple for $3 billion--Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine navigated very different environments towards destinies that would, ultimately and improbably, bring them together. Dre's story began in Compton, CA, where his fascination with dance music, DJ innovations and sound brought him into contact with Eazy-E, Ice Cube, DJ Yella and MC Ren. Together, they would become the core of the 1980s gangsta-rap supergroup N.W.A. A native of Red Hook, Brooklyn, Jimmy gravitated to music following an indifferent academic career, and with a determination to avoid continuing in the family business as a longshoreman, he turned stints answering phones in recording studios to connecting with artists like John Lennon, Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen through a combination of hard work and old-fashioned luck, eventually building a reputation as a fearless, talented, indefatigable producer.

2Part 2 (The Defiant Ones) recap, spoilers

Part 2

10 July 2017$3.99

Dr. Dre's formation of hip hop supergroup N.W.A. brings forth the seminal hip-hop record Straight Outta Compton. Though Dre's creative direction is integral to the group's success, his relationship with the original N.W.A. contributors, especially Eazy-E, deteriorated due to artistic and financial conflicts. Jimmy Iovine's work on highly successful albums from Tom Petty, U2 and Stevie Nicks reveals his knack for production and collaboration. But his massive workload and tumultuous personal life lead him to reevaluate his future in the music industry.

3Part 3 (The Defiant Ones) recap, spoilers

Part 3

11 July 2017$3.99

After leaving Eazy-E and Ruthless Records, Dr. Dre's independence results in his debut solo album, The Chronic and the start of his noteworthy collaborations with Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur. But Dre's artistic success came with numerous challenges, including growing cultural and political concerns about the explicit content in his music. Jimmy Iovine's transition from music producer to music executive gives him an opportunity to utilize his eye for talent and business savvy, culminating in his creation of Interscope Records and signing Dre. However, Jimmy's partnership with Dre and Interscope's provocative roster of musicians means absorbing their problems with the law.

Part 4

12 July 2017$3.99

After cutting ties with Death Row Records and Suge Knight, Dr. Dre starts Aftermath Records, (an imprint under Interscope) and discovers Eminem, producing him to international success. Though Jimmy Iovine and Dre continue to produce a top-tier roster of talent, structural changes in the music industry force them to innovate their business model, leading to the creation of Beats Electronics and their flagship product, Beats By Dr. Dre.
