There's a great number of feats in the the Steven Universe movie. Now...where to begin?
Spoiler:
Final Results
Spinel's Injector height = 124.46m
Spinel's injector mass (empty) = 79283564 kg
Spinel's injector mass (full) = 96906988kg
Spinel punches Steven (energy) = 28.601 tons of TNT
Spinel punches Steven (speed) = Mach 1.115
Steven lifts Spinel's injector = 0.023 tons of TNT
Spinel's injector explodes = 15.985 tons of TNT
Not the greatest feats gems have demonstrated in terms of strength, speed and lifting, but it's consistent so it's nice. Keep in mind that Spinel is the equivalent of a Jester with no known combat training.

Garnet shatters a huge obsidian block. And yes, these kinds of blocks are Obsidian.
In a previous calc, I put Garnet at being 2.14968787m tall.
241 pixels = 2.14968787m
1 pixel = 2.14968787m/241 = 0.00891986668m
0.00891986668m X 517 = 4.61157107m
0.00891986668m X 759 = 6.77017881m
0.00891986668m X 119 = 1.06146413m
0.00891986668m X 163 = 1.45393827m
Volume of the main bulk as a trapezoid, volume of the top bit as half a cube. This is the formula we'll be using for the former;
A = 1/2(a + b)h
= 1/2 X (1.06146413 + 4.61157107) X 6.77017881
= 19.2037313497m^2
V = 19.2037313497 X 4.61157107
= 88.5593719283m^3
V = 1.06146413 X 1.45393827 X 1.45393827
= 2.24386776039/2
= 1.1219338802m^3
V = 88.5593719283 + 1.1219338802
= 89.6813058085m^3
Obsidian's mass varies, but apparently it's typically at 2600kg/m^3 (according to that link at least).
M = 89.6813058085 X 2600
= 233171.395102kg
Spoiler:
Timeframe is 0.75 seconds.
150 pixels = 2.14968787m
1 pixel = 2.14968787m/150 = 0.0143312525m
0.0143312525m X 497 = 7.12263249m
T = 7.12263249m/0.75s
= 9.49684332m/s
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 233171.395102 X 9.49684332^2
= 10514867.9147 joules
That's not all; we'll also go with a low end of violent fragmentation and a high end of pulverization.
(Low end)
E = 88.5593719283 X 69000000
= 6110596663.05 + 10514867.9147
= 6121111530.96 joules
= 1.462980767437859 tons of TNT
(High end)
E = 88.5593719283 X 200000000
= 17711874385.7 + 10514867.9147
= 17722389253.6 joules
= 4.235752689674952 tons of TNT
Final Results
Garnet destroys Obsidian block (low end) = 1.463 tons of TNT
Garnet destroys Obsidian block (high end) = 4.236 tons of TNT
Ultimately a bit feat, but still nice. Also, Garnet can break Obsidian?

Lapis rocks her gem tower noticably. Looking at the Mercalli Intensity Scale...
Spoiler:
The shaking looks around 4. Given this isn't seizemic though, we'll be using an impact calculator.
Going from my previous calculation, Lapis's ocean tower is 2040100m tall. Messing around with the impact calculator until I got magnitude 4, we get a result of 1.58 x 10^30 Joules (1.58e+30 joules), or 377.62906309751432855 exotons of TNT!
Final Results
Lapis shakes her tower = 377.629 exotons
Holy shit, moon level Lapis! Seriously though, I'm gonna need a second opinion on if this is done right or not. 
There's a ton of overlooked feats in the battle between Alexandrite & Malachite. We'll, not for much longer!
Spoiler:
Final Results
Malachite's ice wall = 631.177 tons of TNT
Alexandrite evaporates water hand = >328.622 tons of TNT
And Lapis alone and each of the Crystal Gems have better than this in anycase.

The Duke of Strawberries jumps with a huge metal ball which comes down and whacks it. Scaling the bomyknocker from Garnets head, which in a previous calc I put at being 0.560031954m high.
23 pixels = 0.560031954m
1 pixel = 0.560031954m/23 = 0.0243492154m
0.0243492154m X 159 = 3.87152525m
3.87152525m/2 = 1.93576262m
0.0243492154m X 24 = 0.58438117m
0.58438117m/2 = 0.292190585m
0.0243492154m X 31 = 0.754825677m
The ball as a sphere and the pointy bits as cylinders (of which I can count 9).
V = πr^2h
= π X 0.292190585^2 X 0.754825677
= 0.20245521761 X 9
= 1.82209695849m^3
V = 4/3πr3
= 4/3 X π X 1.93576262^3
= 30.3839971844m^3
V = 30.3839971844 + 1.82209695849
= 32.2060941429m^3
Medieval weapons (and weapons in general) are made of steel, which weighs 7850kg/m^3.
M = 32.2060941429 X 7850
= 252817.839022kg
Spoiler:
Timeframe is 0.16 seconds.
0.0243492154m X 212 = 5.16203366m
T = 5.16203366m/0.16s
= 32.2627104m/s
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 252817.839022 X 32.2627104^2
= 131576829.932 joules
Let's also add GPE.
E = 1.93576262 X 9.807 X 252817.839022
= 4799499.92725 joules
E = 131576829.932 + 4799499.92725
= 136376329.859 joules
= 0.03259472510970363 tons of TNT
Final Results
Duke of Strawberries mace slam = 0.033 tons of TNT
Could've sworn this would've been higher.

Peridot moves some massive metal blocks. Scaling Peridot from Garnet, who I put at 2.14968787m in a previous calc.
837 pixels = 2.14968787m
1 pixel = 2.14968787m/837 = 0.00256832481m
0.00256832481m X 495 = 1.27132078m
0.00256832481m X 228 = 0.585578057m
34 pixels = 1.27132078m
1 pixel = 1.27132078m/34 = 0.0373917876m
0.0373917876m X 192 = 7.17922322m
0.0373917876m X 507 = 18.9576363m
18.9576363m/2 = 9.47881815m
0.0373917876m X 777 = 29.053419m
That's all the hard work done! Now onto volume, which is obviously a rectangle.
V = lhw
= 7.17922322 X 7.17922322 X 18.9576363
= 977.100196924m^3
For mass, we'll go with a low end of aluminium (2600kg/m^3), a mid end of titanium (4500kg/m^3) and a high end of steel (7850kg/m^3, values here).
(Low end)
M = 977.100196924 X 2600
= 2540460.512kg
(Mid end)
M = 977.100196924 X 4500
= 4396950.88616kg
(High end)
M = 977.100196924 X 7850

Spoiler:
4.02 seconds.
T = 29.053419m/4.02s
= 7.22721866m/s
Lastly, we get our energy! As well as the kinetic energy, we can also go for GPE. Earths Gravity Pull is 9.807m/s².
(Low end)
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 2540460.512 X 7.22721866^2
= 66347542.6307 joules
E = 9.47881815 X 9.807 X 2540460.512
= 66347542.6307 + 236158083.405

Final Results
Peridot moves blocks of steel (low end) = 0.073 tons of TNT
Peridot moves blocks of steel (mid end) = 0.125 tons of TNT
Peridot moves blocks of steel (high end) = 0.218 tons of TNT
Higher than her getting smashed around in the canyon, but alas, still just small building level.

The Sea Spires beam reaches the Moon in only a few seconds. This will be an easy one. Distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384,400km.
Spoiler:
1.05 seconds.
T = 384,400km/1.05s
= 366095238/299792458
= 1.2211622682 C
Final Results
Sea Spire beam = 1.221 C
So gem tech is light speed to FTL, which should mean the lasers throughout the show are legit lasers.

Weight of water is 1000kg/m^3.
M = 40.3692033745 X 1000
= 40369.2033745kg
Finally, for our energy.
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 40369.2033745 X 144.784938^2
= 423123311.212 joules

Final Results
Opal creates water explosion = 0.101 tons of TNT 
7:41, Steven starts crying, and realises his tears aren't his own, and Blue is revealed to be there.
13:24, Lapis arrives above Blue.
Lapis also says she's here to help fight the Diamonds, as if she's going to be punished like a Crystal Gem, she may as well be one.
https://stevenuniverse.fandom.com/wiki/Reunited/Transcript
This shouldn't be too hard. First, let's get a timeframe.
The timeframe is 368 seconds.
T = 384,400km/368s
= 1044565.22/340.29
= Mach 3069.63243116
Next for the KE, for which we'll have to figure out her mass. In a previous blog, I calced Garnet at 2.14968787m tall.
350 pixels = 2.14968787m
1 pixel = 2.14968787m/350 = 0.00614196534m
0.00614196534m X 275 = 1.68904047m
0.00614196534m X 278 = 1.70746636m
A woman who's 1.70m tall would weigh between 63kg and 70kg. Let's just go with the low end for now.
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 63 X 1044565.22^2
= 3.437017e+13 joules
= 8.2146677820267691 kilotons
Impressive stuff. She also drags the barn and the ground underneath it at these speeds.
584 pixels = 1.70746636m
1 pixel = 1.70746636m/584 = 0.00292374377m
0.00292374377m X 875 = 2.5582758m
91 pixels = 2.5582758m
1 pixel = 2.5582758m/91 = 0.0281129209m
0.0281129209m X 774 = 21.7594008m
21.7594008m/2 = 10.8797004m
0.0281129209m X 228 = 6.40974597m
Volume as a spherical cap, which using this calculator, we find to have a volume of 1128.49040m^3. Loose soil weighs around 1200kg/m^3.
M = 1128.49040m X 1200
= 1354188.48kg
Now, kinetic energy!
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 1354188.48 X 1044565.22^2
= 7.387887e+17 joules
= 176.57473709369025983 megatons
Just to prove how impressive this is, let's go for an absolute low end of 12 hours (or 43200 seconds).
T = 384,400km/43200s
= 8898.14815/340.29
= Mach 26.14872065
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 63 X 8898.14815^2
= 2494076775.73 joules
= 0.5960986557672084 tons of TNT
KE = (0.5)mv^2
= (0.5) X 1354188.48 X 8898.14815^2
= 5.3610318e+13 joules
= 12.813173518164437 kilotons
Final Results
Lapis flies to Earth from the Moon (low end) = Mach 26.149
Lapis's KE (low end) = 0.5960986557672084 tons of TNT
Lapis carries barn (low end) = 12.813 kilotons
Lapis flies to Earth from the Moon (high end) = Mach 3069.632
Lapis's KE (high end) = 8.215 kilotons
Lapis carries barn (high end) = 176.575 megatons
Lapis is magnitudes stronger and faster even by the high ends, but still impressive.

Sardonyx swings her hammer casually, which is an incredible feat in itself. To get the volume of the hammer, we'll be scaling from Steven using the average height of a 12 year old boy (that being 58 inches, or 1.4732m).
62 pixels = 1.4732m
1 pixel = 1.4732m/62 = 0.0237612903m
0.0237612903m X 510 = 12.1182581m

0.0237612903m X 298 = 7.08086451m
0.0237612903m X 74 = 1.75833548m
1.75833548m/2 = 0.87916774m
0.0237612903m X 256 = 6.08289032m
0.0237612903m X 320 = 7.6036129m
340 pixels = 7.6036129m
1 pixel = 7.6036129m/340 = 0.0223635674m
0.0223635674m X 268 = 5.99343606m
Now we have all the components, let's get the volume of the hammer. Both fists as rectangles and the middle part as a cylinder.
V = lhw
= 7.6036129 X 6.27298064 X 5.99343606
= 285.870816771 X 2

V = πr^2h
= π X 0.87916774^2 X 6.08289032
= 14.770777157m^3
V = 571.741633542 + 14.770777157
= 586.512410699m^3
For our mass, we'll go with a low end of aluminium, a mid end of titanium and a high end of steel, which weigh 2600kg/m^3, 4500kg/m^3 & 7850kg/m^3 respectively.
(low end)
M = 586.512410699 X 2600
= 1524932.26782kg
(mid end)
M = 586.512410699 X 4500
= 2639305.84815kg
(high end)
M = 586.512410699 X 7850
= 4604122.42399kg
She swings it in a full arc, so we'll get the distance as the circumference of a circle (from where she's holding it).
C = 2πr
= 2 X π X 7.08086451
= 44.4903838514m

Final Results
Sardonyx swings her hammer (low end) = 5.771 tons of TNT
Sardonyx swings her hammer (mid end) = 9.989 tons of TNT
Sardonyx swings her hammer (high end) = 17.425 tons of TNT 
Change my mind. There's a good few impressive feats in what just may be the Steven Universe finalle, so let's get to calcing!

Final Results
Diamond Mecha height = 295.421m
Obsidian's height = 40.535m
Diamond Mecha stomps the Crystal Gems = 1.267 kilotons
Yellow's handship punches the Diamond mecha (speed) = Mach 1.133
Yellow's handship punches the Diamond mecha (energy) = 655.344 tons of TNT
Not nearly the best feats for any of the involved parties, but still impressive.

Spoiler:
The radius of the Earth is 6371km, or 3959 miles. Given the nomogram creating website doesn't work for me, I'll go around this another way. First off, as God Movement says in his blog...
With a magnitude of 4.0, an amplitude of 200 and a distance of 680km, we can now get to increasing the magnitude. 680km fits into 6371km 9.369 times.
Amp = 200 X 10 X 9.369
= 18738
Then we need to divide our distance by 5.7.
3959/5.7 = 694.561403509
log(base10)18738+3log(base10)[8*694.518596491]2.92 = Magnitude 12.58704
Enter that through the earthquake calculator...
Magnitude 12.58704 = 4.7924765884568E+23 joules = 114.54293949466539004 teratons

Steven astral projects to Earth = 4025204000000 C
Steven locates the Earth in the astral plane = 1.446 FOE
The speed is consistent with other FTL feats in the series like Lapis flying to the edge of the galaxy and back and the Diamonds corrupting light. As for the energy, we'll need more feats like that (and out of the astral plane too), but word of god has said that there were galaxyshaking events in the past...

9.98 seconds.
T = 6378.1km/9.98s
= 639088.176/340.29
= Mach 1878.06922
Let's also get the energy for the magma it would have to push aside to rise. The mantle is around 2900km thick. Previously I calced the gem temple to be 155.65514m tall.
175 pixels = 155.65514m
1 pixel = 155.65514m/175 = 0.889457943m
0.889457943m X 230 = 204.575327m
204.575327m/2 = 102.287663m
Volume of the Clusters arm as a cylinder.
V = πr^2h
= π X 102.287663^2 X 6378100
= 2.09646545e11m^3
Now for the mass of the magma moved. Based on various densities of magma, rhyolite magma weighs between 2180 and 2250kg per m^3, which averages out at 2215kg per m^3.
M = 2.09646545e11 X 2215
= 4.64367097e14kg
KE = (0.5) X 4.64367097e14 X 639088.176^2
= 9.4831585e25 joules
We'll save that for now. There's also the pat of the crust broken. Continental crust is between 35km to 40km thick, which gives an average of 37.5km (37500m).
V = πr^2h
= π X 102.287663^2 X 37500
= 1.23261558e9m^3
Fragmentation of rock is 8000000 joules/m^3.
E = 1.23261558e9 X 8000000
= 9.86092464e15 joules
On top of that, we'll find the GPE of said arm (assuming it weighs as much as human flesh, which weighs 1010kg/m^3 and it's centre of gravity is in the middle (3189050m up).
M = 2.09646545e11 X 1010
= 2.1174301e14kg
E = 3189050 X 9.807 X 2.1174301e14
= 6.62226546e21 joules
Now for our total energy.
E = 9.4831585e25 + 9.86092464e15 + 6.62226546e21
= 9.48382073e25 joules
= 22.6668755497 petatons
One more thing though; let's get the energy for the arm manifesting, as gems manifest through massenergy conversion.

= 2.1174301e14 X 299792458^2
= 1.90305127e31 joules
= 4.54840169694 zettaton
Final Results
The Clusters arm emerges (speed) = Mach 1878.06922
The Clusters arm emerges (energy) = 22.667 petatons
The Clusters arm manifests = 4.548 zettatons 
Unfortunately, Totally Not A Cat deleted his blogs, including his calc of this feat. So we'll have to redo it.

The Gem Pyramid explodes, and Steven tanks it at point blank, without even letting go of the source of the explosion. Lot's of scaling here, so let's begin...
Spoiler:
Final Results
Garnet shatters floor = 0.083 tons of TNT
Gem Pyramid explodes = >133.588 tons of TNT
That's about a tenth of what TNAC got for this, but it's still impressive, and given that the pyramid was filled with a bunch more stuff, it would be ultimately even higher.
