Using Elements 8, thinking of switch to Lightroom

Recently bought an Olympus E-M5 and am convincing myself to shoot RAW & JPEG on an Alaska trip the end of this month. Am currently using Elements 8 and like the cataloging system it has, in addition to its ability to correct dust spots, minor skin flaws, tweaking photo for level, basic color and exposure corrections. I will need a program such as what came with the camera or one such as Lightroom to handle the RAW processing. So I guess my question is does Lightroom offer the same or better corrective adjustments and cataloging as Elements and does it allow for the cataloging of video clips?

Any input will be greatly appreciated.
