Welcome to our new web series: Ticket or Skip It. Reporting from his room aboard the USS Echo, a small submarine conducting biological research in the Atlantic Ocean, comes reviewer Corey Wood, who has agreed to grace us on a weekly basis with an update of all the new films hitting cinemas around the world (which he gets to watch via satellite in a private screening room aboard this seafaring vessel). Watch as Corey loves up on The Raven while punching The Five-Year Engagement in the face.

About The Raven, Mr. Wood had this to say.

"I really enjoyed it. It is my favorite movie of 2012 so far."

The Five-Year Engagement brought the exact opposite reaction.

"This movie sucked. It was horrible. I was so disappointed, and baffled by how bad this film turned out to be."

This week, Corey doubles down on his time spent in a theater, giving us a look at John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in the mystery thriller The Raven, and then switching gears for the romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement, starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt as a groom and bride-to-be that just can't seem to get down the isle for their wedding. Check out Episode 1.03: The Five Year Engagement and Episode 1.04: The Raven, then decide for yourself if you want to Ticket or Skip It!
