I understand where the THX guy is coming from, as flash memory is getting ultra cheap now (just bought a 16GB SD card from newegg for $80), but I do think he's wrong about blu-ray. I think all it's going to take for blu-ray to take hold is the elusive sub $200 player. I still know lots of people who have nice HDTVs who want blu-ray, but will not spend $300-400 on a player (or $30/disc).
As far as downloads goes, I'll throw in the same $0.02 I always toss out there (as if anyone cares :P): As long as the general population can hop in the car, drive to the store, pick up a blu-ray movie, swing by and grab some grub, head home, and watch the movie before they can complete a 30GB download, physical media will reign supreme.
