Some readers have interpreted my silence as dislike for the effort, and a "let's not do the movie any harm" attitude.
In truth, the answer is much simpler than that!
We had no babysitter available this weekend, and well, Star Trek isn't exactly age-appropriate for my two-and-a-half year old!
My sweet wife, Kathryn, told me I should feel free to go see the movie by myself if I needed to, but if Star Trek has taught me anything, it's loyalty. I wasn't about to go see Star Trek without Kathryn, especially on Mother's Day Weekend. In this case, the needs of the family outweighed the needs of the Trekkie.
So, yes, I am now officially the last person in the United States to see Star Trek.
I'll be going to see the movie this coming Friday, and then publishing my review here on Saturday. I guess patience is a virtue. I just hope, in this case, that "having" turns out to be as great a thing as "wanting."
