The last movie to come out on VHS was "A History of Violence" in 2005. I wonder what the last DVD movie will be, and in what year. I'll expect that BluRay keeps kicking due to the better quality and the crappy bandwidth those of us in the middle of the country deal with, at least until 2030 or so.

That seems crazy that the last VHS movie was released 10 years ago. It feels so much longer. It will be interesting to see if/when DVD dies out but I think you're right that BluRay will stick around for a while longer since a lot of places can't get consistent internet speeds for streaming, which is a shame.
