Great review Matt (and I agree with you, Mark!)

The film looks stupendous and, truth be told, (I know I'm in the minority here) I've gotten a little more enoyment out of this entry over the years than a few of those that came before it (I'm the one who finds SHADOW mostly unmemorable and GOES HOME to be be ALMOST ruined by the degradation of Nora's character into silly buffoonery.)

A VERY satisfying release, IMO.

Now that all of the Thin Man movie series has been released indivigually, can a box set be far off? I'd much rather but the BD box set than have to purchase them one at a time? Fingers crossed!!!

If my own observations about WAC and Blu-ray box sets are correct, then I would say that it is very likely that there will NOT be a box set (or box sets) for this series, so I would recommend going with the individual releases.

I think the ship for a boxset has passed as WAC is even having trouble releasing individual titles as they try to fill up the pipeline for BD releases.

Yes box sets from WAC have been extremely rare. I don't see them doing one for the Thin Man series.
Personally, I wouldn't even mind them going back and releasing a box after the fact, a la Vinegar Syndrom's Rudy Ray Moore 'set,' but they seem to be heading in a completely different direction, much like how Criterion has basically phased out their Eclipse sets.
