Although, I personally prefer durations in minutes. I can see your point.

Since this is likely to be a personal preference, allowing the user to select this via site preferences would be useful.

If you ask me, minutes are highly preferable when browsing the main site. The mobile version is not just uglier, it's less intuitive and less informative than the main IMDB site.

However, as another commenter said, this is largely up to user preference. If anything, there could add an option in the user profile to allow users to choose between a minute-based and hour-based display.

But certainly, changing the display to hours for everyone would be absurd.

Within the last few months, the technical specs pages have been updated to show runtimes in both formats:

However, this does not affect the display on main title pages.
