That took way longer than I should be willing to admit, but I get it!

I wonder if most folks will want to see an ending like that more than once; expect Infinity War's opening weekend to beat Black Panther's, but in subsequent weeks it'll be tough to hold up as well BP has.

Hey, it actually has, until now.  Apart from its first and last weekends, Infinity War's daily totals have been uncannily close to Black Panther's, as if the same people waited the same amount of time to see them:

Now it's falling off the pace despite reaching $600M.  BP will probably crack $700M but I wonder if IW will.

But that's just in the US.  Overseas it's a completely different story, and IW's simply crushing it.  It topped BP's entire foreign run in just two weeks (without China), and topped Force Awakens in just four.  I didn't foresee that at all.

Part of me is content to not mind that factor too too much. What really matters to me is that it's very high on the IMDB's top 250 and that is NO small feat at all.

This guy's better than me at cataloging the postive stuff.

Sure is a good thing that Thanos doesn't know about the Addams Family theme song.

I just noticed on my second viewing Monday evening that when they went to Nidevelir there was another gauntlet.  I guess Thanos didn't want that one?  He burnt out his gauntlet after the snapture, but he still has the stones.  Without a functioning gauntlet, he'll be less formidable.  Maybe the other gauntlet will be used to undo things.  Maybe Iron Man will use it, and that is why Doctor Strange gave up the Time Stone.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

I assumed it was a positive from the mold making process.

Yeah, that's what I thought it was too. Eitri could make another one with it, though.

I had an interesting thought. Now that Thanos is basically equal to God, he could potentially do anything... BUT... what if he wanted to use the power of the gauntlet to bring Gamora back to life? Wouldn't the soul stone... for lack of better word "object" to Thanos "cheating?". That is of course assuming the stones possess some kind of sentience.

What if, instead of eliminating half the lives of the universe, he just doubled the resources?

Well I'm not so sure, I mean yeah the glove looks burned out, but Thanos was still obviously able to use the space stone.
