No they're not
wget and perl LWP retrieve the page correctly.
I'm now pretty sure you have a resolv problem.
I wouldn't (yet) bother with Dan's (useful) CPAN suggestion - I don't
think that's your problem.
for now do this as root:
cp /etc/hosts /etc/hosts.safe
echo 184.108.40.206 www.imdb.com >> /etc/hosts
make sure there are 2 >> signs ;)
Then try perl and wgt again.
FYI I've been having intermittent problems with name resolution for a
couple of weeks with Freeserve (or whatever name they're now using ;) )
