It seems that IMDB is now blocking requests to their assets...we might have to get rid of the images all together, or get them from the rotten tomatoes API.

Might try contacting IMDB, since it looks like DuckDuckGo is specifically blocked (probably for making too many requests).

I believe we've tried contacting them before and they weren't interested in talking. The problem is that we're using a 3rd party API, as IMDB doesn't actually have one. They only license their dataset.
