DVD releases: 'Catfish,' 'Machete,' 'Dinner for Schmucks' and more

DVD Catfish: Your response to the controversial Catfish -- a presumed documentary about three guys who decide to track down the woman with whom one of them is having an Internet romance -- will depend entirely on whether you find these three charmingly naïve or insufferably smug; innocent victims or wily perpetrators. I found myself coming down somewhere in the middle. The climactic sequence, in which the truth is revealed, is either a raw, unflinching portrait of the way social media and the Internet have driven us all a little crazy, or the deftest hoax since The Blair Witch Project. Either way, you can't tear your eyes from the train wreck unfolding onscreen. Available on DVD and Blu-ray.

Also new: Machete; Dinner for Schmucks; Howl; Big Love, The Complete Fourth Season; Camille; The Last Exorcism; Case 39; Yellow Handkerchief
