How would we show someone harmonizing with a Space Stone, for example? And could it be done in the course of a 2 hour film?

    Thanos still shows himself the same plot-breaking badass as in the comics, and then did it again without any of the stones. I thought it was a hell of a conclusion to the first wave of the films.

    Both are equally valid and both work, just in different ways. Like the sequence of Ender training (Ender's Game), in the film vs the novel; I was a little disappointed at some of the bits that were compressed together, changed, or left out of the film, but it still got the point across in a viscerally understandable way.
    1 film? I think not. They did over a dozen relating to the stones as part of phases 1-3.

    The stones could have been explained differently, but making them as powerful as the comics would have rendered the heroes all but useless except as a distraction (all they did in the comics basically).

    Thanos in the movies is nothing compared to comic Thanos for badassery.
