Can't get IMDb to load in my browser (computer)

This has been happening for awhile (weeks?). I can't get IMDb to load in my browser on my laptop. I've tried Chrome (my default browser) as well as Edge. I even tried it in Incognito Mode in Chrome to see if that would work but no dice. I've tried various links to IMDb through Google (like searching for an actor or a movie and clicking on that hit in the Google search) as well as just going directly to www.imdb.com. Nothing works. Absolutely nothing.

However, it opens in Chrome on my phone every time with no issue.

What gives?

@mreid72 It looks like you have tried everything on https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/general-information/why-is-imdb-displaying-differently-on-my-browser/GF2ZAR69V859XLHF 

This will be a local networking problem, likely a VPN or firewall issue.  Unfortunately this is not something we can really diagnose or fix, sorry.  Can you use your phone as a hotspot and connect your laptop to the internet via the phone?  If it works there, this will confirm it is your network.
