I hate to go on about this, but I see that there's now a minimum of 50 characters for a review. Could you change this to, let's say, 200 characters? 50 characters is short, as short as this sentence. (!)

Hi Marco,
I moved your reply and marked it as an Idea, since it's feedback on the review requirements. This way other staff members can see your feedback on this and other IMDb members can provide their feedback on this.

I'm curious. Why does it matter?

Obviously, it's not the biggest problem in the world, but what is currently written, is just plain silly and, IMHO, factually incorrect because I don't believe it's possible to write a proper review in anything under 100 characters.
Apart from that, it leads to a lot of useless reviews because some people will create these very short "reviews". This makes the user review sections less useful and I don't think it's good to let sections of IMDb become less useful.
