Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database (impdb.org) has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

Movie (2005)

Starring:
Jake Gyllenhaal (Pvt Anthony Swafford)
Jamie Foxx (Staff Sgt. Sykes)
Lucas Black (Cpl Chris Kruger)
Brian Geraghty (Fergus O'Donnell)
Evan Jones (Dave Fowler)
Chris Cooper (Lt. Col. Kazinski)

Anthony Swafford joins the United States Marine Corps because he doesn't know what else to do. He is soon enrolled in Scout Sniper School where he eventually becomes a shooter. Before long, the Marines find themselves in the middle of the desert fighting in a war that barely exists for them. The Marines have to learn how to cope with life in the desert when they're not actually fighting, and how to deal insanity of boredem. After many uneventful days in camp, the Marines are finally sent on a push only to find the enemy have been and gone. Swafford and Kruger finally get the break they've been hoping for when they're sent on a sniper mission, only to have their moment stolen from them at the last moment. By the time they get back they find the war is over, without them even firing their weapons.
