New this week on DVD and Blu-ray:
''General Education'' - The directing debut of Hubbard native Tom Morris arrives on Blu-ray this week. The appealing, quirky comedy stars Chris Sheffield as a teen who has a tennis scholarship to attend college, but he failed to pass one class he needed to graduate high school. Trying to complete summer school without jeopardizing his scholarship or being found out by his parents are among the many obstacles he faces. The cast includes Larry Miller, Janeane Garofalo and Elaine Hendrix.
Morris is joined by his Pelican House Productions cohorts for a commentary track, and the disc also includes outtakes and a making-of featurette. (Well Go USA, $29.98 Blu-ray)
''Dark Shadows'' - This big-screen adaptation of the largely forgotten late '60s / early '70s daytime gothic soap opera was marketed as a spoof. Instead, director Tim Burton made a movie that is largely faithful to the melodramatic, soapy tone of the original, albeit with infinitely better production design and special effects.
There are some laughs as Johnny Depp plays Barnabus Collins, an 18th century vampire who emerges from being entombed after 200 years and finds himself smack dab in the 1970s. But the screenplay needed either more or fewer laughs. It floats in this middle ground of melodrama, comedy and horror. Of the three, the melodrama dominates, and it's the least satisfying.
The Blu-ray edition comes with deleted scenes and the option to watch in Maximum Movie Mode, which allows access to about a dozen short featurettes separately or while watching the film. (Warner Home Video, $28.98 DVD, $29.98 movie-only Blu-ray and digital copy, $35.99 Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy combo)
''People Like Us'' - Chris Pine stars as a salesman who discovers a family secret after his father's death: he has a 30-year-old sister (Elizabeth Banks) he never knew existed.
The DVD includes two commentary tracks, one with writer-director Alex Kurtzman and actors Pine and Banks and second with Kurtzman and Michelle Pfeiffer. The Blu-ray adds a third commentary track with the director - again - and writers Roberto Orci and Jody Lambert as well as deleted scenes, bloopers and the featurette ''Number One with a Bullet: The Story Behind People Like Us.''

''Peace, Love & Misunderstanding'' - Catherine Keener plays a New York lawyer who goes to spend time with her hippie mother (Jane Fonda) after a divorce. Elizabeth Olsen, Chace Crawford and Jeffrey Dean Morgan star in a film directed by Bruce Beresford. (MPI Home Video, $24.98 DVD, $29.98 Blu-ray)
''Red Lights'' - I'm sure Robert De Niro has used the word ''no'' on screen plenty of times. He apparently has a hard time saying it off-screen, judging by the number of movies he's said yes to making. This another movie essentially going to straight-to-video starring De Niro, who plays a blind psychic in a psychological thriller with Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy. (Millennium, $28.99 DVD, $29.99 Blu-ray)
''Sound of My Voice'' - Two journalists investigate a cult and its reclusive and secretive leader, who claims to be from the future. Brit Marlin, Christopher Denham and Nicole Vicius star. (20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, $29.99 DVD, $39.99 Blu-ray)
''The Hole'' - Two brothers move to a small town with their single mother and find a mysterious hole in the basement of their new home that leads to ... scary things. The movie was directed by Joe Dante (''Gremlins,'' ''Matinee,'' ''Toy Soldiers'' ''The Howling''). (Big Air, $14.99 DVD, $20.99 Blu-ray)
''Iron Sky'' - Nazis have been developing a space program on the dark side of the moon since the end of World War II. Now their space ships are ready to strike. (Entertainment One, $19.98 DVD, $24.98 Blu-ray)
